Yesterday an ANC Rep asked MPD: “Can you share any information on the sounds of gunfire or shots fired around the 300 block of Delafield on September 5, 2020 around 10pm.”

An MPD Captain replied:

“On Saturday September 5, 2020, at approximately 10:00pm, Fourth District units responded to the 4800 block of 4th ST NW, in reference to a call for sounds gunshots. Upon their arrival they located several shell casing and 1 damaged vehicle. There were no reported injuries at the time.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call MPD on 202-727-9099.”

Last night a reader tweeted us at 12:52 AM (technically Wed. morning):

Over 15 shots just heard around 5th and Delafield NW”

Updates when/if more is known about that incident.
