“Any word on gunshots this morning around Georgia and Taylor NW? Heard 3 at about 9:40. Helicopter was overhead but seems to be gone. there were foot patrols and motorcycle cops around, as well as the helicopter. Just talked to a cop. It was a robbery. No one hurt. Still shots fired, just no one hit. Was in the alley behind 7-11 at Georgia and Shepherd.
