So let’s get right to it – I hear the folks from the incredibly popular Showtime bar in Bloomingdale will be bringing a new bar to north country on Georgia Ave near Kennedy Street. Showtime opened in Bloomingdale back in 2013 and are perennially placed on all the ‘best of’ lists around town. Deservedly so. STAY TUNED.

UPDATE 3:27pm:

I was just at the corner of Georgia Ave. and Kennedy and spoke to the building’s property manager, who told me that a licensed structural engineer looked at the wall in the basement of the Lucky Corner building today. The structural engineer determined it’s not a danger to the public.

The structural engineer’s report will be completed tomorrow and it’s expected that the Lucky Corner store will be cleared to open.

Best regards,

From ANC 4D01 Commissioner Nancy Roth:

“The Dept. of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs has condemned the building that houses the Lucky Corner convenience store (5433 Georgia Ave. on the corner of Georgia and Kennedy St. NW). (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Brigthwood on Longfellow b/w 7th & 8th Street. Last night around 11:10 my girlfriend and I heard ten gun shots go off outside our window. There were about 5 or 6 police cars patrolling the neighborhood and then what appeared to be police officers set up on Longfellow searching for shell casings. I searched news and mpd sources but didn’t see any mention of it. Just reaching out to see if anyone else has reported to you.”

On an MPD listserv a resident inquired:

“We heard 8 gunshots last night at 11:15pm around Emerson or Farragut and maybe 5th St. Is there any more information you can give us?”

Additionally, this morning, a reader reported hearing shots fired near 7th and Gallatin NW but MPD says: “There have been no reported sound of gunshots this morning near 7th and Gallatin NW”

Update from MPD 2:30pm:

“On November 13th, 2017, at approximately 11:12 P.M., Fourth District police officers were in the 700 block of Kennedy Street, N.W., when they heard multiple gunshots (6 shots) coming from the 700 block of Longfellow Street, N.W. The MPD Units immediately responded towards the gunfire and began canvassing the area.

While the units were canvassing, a victim called 911 and reported that a stray bullet had gone through his bedroom window and struck the bedroom wall in the 600 block of Longfellow Street, N.W. The victim reported hearing 5 gunshots, followed by a brief pause, then the sound of car tires screeching. Immediately after the victim heard the car speed away, he heard another louder gunshot which shattered his bedroom window and struck the bedroom wall. Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of these gunshots. Several other witnesses were interviewed, and reported similar accounts. (more…)
