“Unfortunately we are currently investigating a shooting that occurred in the Unit block of Massachusetts Ave. NE this evening. One adult male was transported to the hospital. That block remains closed to traffic. We will provide updates as we are able.”
Ed. Note: In early September there was also a shooting near Union Station.
From the Washington Post:
“A man who was shot multiple times Wednesday night in front of Union Station has died and the attack is being investigated as a homicide, according to D.C. police.”
Perhaps related to many messages I got along these lines:
“any reason I just heard the US Capitol alert siren go off? Typically they test it on Saturdays- Halloween at 11 pm seems to be a bad time to test it…”
