A reader reported:

“We were walking our dog in Petworth around 6:45 this morning and a fleet of about 10 Park Police cars was rolling East on Emerson, including an armored Humvee. A group in full military armor raided a house on Kansas. They stopped traffic and there is still a helicopter circling as of 7 AM. Any idea what might have been going on and why Park Police?”

MPD reported:

“The United States Park Police executed a search warrant in the 4900 block of Kansas Ave. NW. MPD units assisted with traffic control and air support until the residence was secured by USPP.”

US Park Police reported:

“A USPP Officer has been shot in the lower extremity during a search warrant in Northwest DC. He was transported to a local hospital and is in stable condition. No active threat to the community and the scene is secure. Press release forthcoming.”
