Other readers reported hearing shots fired around 1:15am on Wallach Place, NW:

“multiple bullets sprayed on Wallach Pl NW tonight, very close to the scene of the shooting outside Mexicue yesterday. Major response around 1:15am. You can see the white circles for bullet casings outside this morning on Wallach (I think 16 total). I don’t know why a crime alert wasn’t sent out, maybe because no one was shot? Wanted to get the word out – just because no one was shot, I think people should know of the gunfire so close to Thursday’s shooting.”

MPD also reported on W Street, NE:

“Alert: Shooting investigation at 2142hrs in the 400 block of W St NE. Lookout for Lookout is for 3 B/M’s. S-1 20-30 Y/O wearing a white shirt and hat last scene N/B/ on 5th St NE. Suspect 2 40-50 Y/O wearing shorts scene fleeing in a gray sedan. . Suspect 3 unknown age.”
