From MPD:

“On September 16, 2019, at approximately 01:07am, multiple sounds of gunshots were reported in the 4000 block of 4th street NW & 4th Taylor NW. Thorough canvasses were conducted by MPD members, K-9 unit, and helicopter. Shell casings were recovered in the 4000 block of 4th street, but there were no reports of any victims. Property damage was also reported.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact MPD at (202) 727-9099.”

BJ writes: “2nd night in a row. Gunshots in Petworth 4th & Taylor NW.”

Another reader reported:

“Wanted to let you know of a shooting that just happened (around 11pm) in the 4000th block of 4th St, NW. This is the second shooting in as many nights in the same troubled block. Cops arrived within minutes on both occasions, taped off the block, looking for bullet casings. I hear the helicopter flying overhead.
As you can imagine this is very frustrating.”
