“Earlier this evening, members of the Third District mountain bike unit were patrolling in the 2900-3000 blocks of 11th Street NW in response to the recent incidents involving gunshots. As the officers approached a group of individuals, all 3 fled on foot. After short foot pursuits, Officers were able to apprehend all 3 (2 juvenile males and 1 adult male). Each of the 3 subjects were in possession of illegal handguns and were placed under arrest.

As a result of the work of these Third District officers, 3 illegal handguns were taken off the streets and 3 subjects were arrested. We will continue our efforts to remove these illegal firearms from our streets, especially in an area that has seen too many recent incidents of violent crime.”
