Another adult male was located in a conscious state on Georgia Avenue NW with one apparent gunshot wound to the body. The male was transported to a local hospital and listed in stable condition. There are no lookouts for any suspects at this time.
Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to contact MPD at (202) 727-9099.”
“At about 3:15 PM this afternoon a Victim was shot in the rear alley of the 300 block of K St. SE. Sadly, the Victim passed away at the hospital shortly thereafter.
The lookout for the Suspect is a thin black male, wearing a black long-sleeved hooded top, a mask, and slim fitting black pants.

“On 6/23/19 at approximately 8:14 pm members of the First District responded to the 700 block of 8th St NW for a subject suffering from a gunshot to his leg. When officers arrived they were advised that two subjects were engaged in a verbal dispute. The dispute became physical and both subjects began fighting. As both subjects fell to the ground, subject 1 retrieved a handgun from his waist area. Both subjects continued to struggle and Subject 1 fired one round striking the victim in the right thigh area. Subject 1 then fled the scene. The victim sustained a non-life threatening injury. The lookout is for a Black Male, 20-30yo, white tank top, blue jeans, new balance tennis shoes.

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
