“Shots fired on 400 Block of N Street NW – 2nd night in a row!”

5th and N Street, NW

Multiple readers have reported about this unsettling situation the last few days (and weeks.) You can follow @PoPville on twitter if interested in getting the real time reports. From Sunday night and Monday night:

“I was walking by N and 5th St NW and heard 20-25 gunshots/fireworks. Anyone else hear or see anything?”

“another round, in the exact same@ spot as last night at least 20 shots on the street. Sirens approaching, happened about 2 minutes ago. Any news??”

“Gunshots. Cops are on site now and chopper is circling. Second shooting at 5th & N this week – other was Thursday night”

ANC Rep Rachelle Nigro wrote on IG: “6E04! Update on the shots fired on the 400 block of N St. The detectives are still on the scene. Bullets went into homes across from the Cooperative and into cars. Again luckily no one was injured or killed.”

Another reader reports via email:

“The last two nights have seen drive-by shootings into a housing complex’s parking lot. Given how many shots were fired (maybe 18 tonight, more than (dozens?) last night, it’s a miracle that apparently no one was hurt – last night there was a Labor Day weekend barbecue taking place right next to the crime scene but people were able to scramble to safety (at least the ones who didn’t – according to my neighbors – run after the getaway car yelling at the perpetrators!)

Links to the videos from my security camera:

Monday night (where you can see a moped/ebike/motorcycle tearing down the sidewalk at the time of the shooting).

Sunday night (where you can just hear the shots).”
