Kate sends around 12:45am: “first the race of cars up New York Ave and now gunshots and tons of cars outside on 4th and K”

Alyssa reports:

“Around 12:36am, we heard 6-7 gun shots sounded like it came from 4th and K St NW. We saw two young males run east on K St. We called 911. Then another young male flagged down a police van and the van followed him to in front of the building under construction at 4th and K St. 3-5 mins later a fire engine and two ambulances joined them in front of the construction.

Earlier tonight we watched a 10+ car pursuit of an armed carjacker who stole a gold Equinox on the same street.

Summer 2020 in DC. And so it begins.”
