Readers reported around 6:45pm Sunday:

“Shooting in Shaw on corner of Giant just now. Heard two shots. Police now blocking street off” Ed. Note: Semantics but this was likely shots fired where nobody was hit, fortunately, because I didn’t see a shooting report from MPD.

Unrelated but MPD reported at 3:20am: “Shooting in the 1800blk of 9th St NW. [around S Street, NW] No lookout at this time.”
