Multiple readers reported a huge police presence including a helicopter in Columbia Heights/Mount Pleasant/Adams Morgan last night:

“We saw several police officers out with flashlights checking the dumpsters behind our place and a few helicopters with searchlights – any idea what’s going on? We asked the cop and he said it would be a good idea if we went home soon (right outside our place). 14th and Florida area…”

Another reader reported:

“Shots fired 3100 block Mass around 1am near South African embassy, fire reported in same area shortly thereafter, Mass shut down by fire response”
