From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the 1200 block of I Street, Southeast, on Sunday, September 10, 2017.

At approximately 5:56 pm, members of the First District responded to the listed location for the report of the sounds of gunshots. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. DC Fire and EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

On Sunday, October 1, 2017 the victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead. The decedent has been identified as 24-year-old Carl Hardy, of Northeast, DC.

A nearby surveillance camera captured several persons of interest and a vehicle of interest in this case. They can be seen in this video:

The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for any homicide committed in the District of Columbia. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by sending a text message to 50411.”

“Dear PoPville,

Found this by my house entrance. Anyone else in the neighborhood getting these? I’m at Girard and 13th! Was wondering if there’s a pattern and others are getting crazy notes too.”

And in Glover Park, Cortney tweets us and shares on a listserve:

“This morning I found a flyer filled with antisemitism on my front steps. It looked like the conspiracy theories of someone who had spent lot of time thinking about this. The tin hat variety. But it’s not a joke. We have a mezuzah on our door. Anyone can see that Jews live here. I took the flyer to the local police precinct, and we are now a reported hate incident.

This is not an isolated incident. The police officer who took my report said, “We’ve been getting a lot of these lately.” I didn’t have to ask her whether she meant hate against Jews or against all groups; we’ve all read the news. This is not okay.

If you see something, report it. If you saw someone distributing flyers like this in the neighborhood, please report it. If you know who did this, please report it. If you yourself are the recipient of hate, please report it. The police said you can call them if you don’t want to go to the precinct, and they will come to you. Acts of hate need to be reported and counted, and the police say that they do investigate these incidents.”

“Dear PoPville,

The attached photo is along the back side of Raymond Elementary as seen from Rock Creek Church Rd & 9th St NW. The speed limit sign in the picture warns that “children are present” …are they hiding in the 5′ tall weeds/grass??! What makes it worse is the mowing crew was out Thursday night around 8pm and didn’t bother to take care of it – any idea who can be contacted to fix this?
