Ed. Note: The above exchange was in reference to the following MPD release I passed on to a reader. I received a large number of inquiries about shots fired in Petworth Thursday night. MPD was a bit slow in releasing info on this incident but at least two arrests were made. Apologies it took so long to confirm the incident.
“On Thursday, February 1st, 2018, around 8:30 PM, MPD officers responded to the call for sounds of gunshots at New Hampshire Avenue and Decatur Street, NW. Officers located two victims that sustained non-life threatening gunshot wounds. During the investigation, the detectives charged 51 year-old Darren Butler of Northwest, Washington, DC with the illegal possession of a firearm. Additionally, the detectives obtained an arrest warrant for another suspect in the case. Today, MPD members arrested 26 year-old Corey Boyd of Northeast, Washington, DC, with ADW Gun pursuant to the arrest warrant obtained by the detectives.”
