Washington, DC


5th and P Street, NW

VJ first reported at 9pm: “just heard about 10 rounds of gun fire in Shaw?”

Many others confirmed hearing the shots and Will captured the scene above noting a man was placed into custody. Since I didn’t see any official MPD reports apparently, fortunately, nobody was hit by the gunfire.

Earlier around 8:10pm MPD reported: “Alert: MPD is on the scene of a confirmed Shooting in the 3900 Block of Clay Pl NE. No Lookout Information.”

In Petworth just near Sherman Circle, MPD reports:

“On March 19, 2020, at approximately 1:25am in the 4700 block of 5th St NW, a male shot and grazed another male in the face during a dispute. The victim was transported to a local hospital and listed in stable condition. The suspect was placed under arrest for ADW Gun. The firearm was recovered, and there is no threat to the community.

This case is a great example of expedient police service and superb police work on the part of Fourth District members.”
