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.”
