Washington, DC

Readers reported around 2:15am: “Did anyone in Columbia heights hear about 8 gunshots in a row?”

“YES.” “Ugh, yes.” “Sounds like a full clip to me (heard from 15th and Euclid St, NW)” “Yes, woke my gf and I up.”

“I called 911 for the 2:15 shooting, the dispatcher was clearly annoyed that I didn’t run to my window in the middle of a shooting to see if I could get any other details, and then I never saw any sign of the police.”


“FWIW, I heard what sounded exactly like two gun shots this morning at 4:05 am; we live in the 2700 block of Woodley Place NW (very close to the elevator for the Woodley Park metro). The apparent gun shots and subsequent laughter were captured on our security camera, but it didn’t show any actual suspicious activity.) I called it in to 911 immediately.

This is the second time we’ve heard gun shots in the last few months at our house. The last time was the incident during Zoo Lights.”
