Washington, DC

Shooting 12.26.17

“Dear PoPville,

Since i didn’t see this reported on the MPD alerts yesterday (or popville), thought i’d send it in.

I witnessed this shooting December 26th (yes, called it in); the footage is from our porch camera on New Hampshire near Spring Rd NW. Spoke at length with the officers, all 3 individuals were picked up a short time later (shooter and 2 fleeing). No one was wounded, and somehow no cars were hit either. This may have been part of a feuding gang battle last night in Park View / Columbia Heights / Petworth (specifically the shooting on Warder).”
