4pm Update: MPD reports the police activity in the 3600 Block of 16th Street NW is cleared and the streets are open.”

Thanks to all who’ve messaged. Matt reported just after 12pm:

“Massive police presence at The Woodner on 16th st. 16th is shutdown for the full block between Spring and Oak. Reportedly an armed robbery in the elevator and the attacker is barricaded inside.”

Sharon reports:

“Official said fire plus robbery, suspects being sought. Lots of fire, ambulance, police.

Cars are able to divert onto 14th St via one of the small streets. Buses aren’t able to make turn so are sitting on 16th St.
Fire trucks have hoses out on the street so at some point it seems there was also a fire.
16th St shut down past the bridge/Arkansas Ave”
