Washington, DC

A reader reported Saturday night around 7:30pm from the 1300 Block Newton St NW:

“We had 7 shots fired outside of our house on Newton St, just east of 14th. Based on our camera it was targeted- there was a verbal altercation and then the shooting. Not sure if anyone was hit. First shot came from one guy, second guy made six shots while retreating. What’s more upsetting is that it took 2 calls and 17 minutes for the cops to arrive.”

Another reader reports this morning shots fired on Gallatin between Georgia and 9th NW:

“woke up to 5 or 6 gunshots around 3am. Police arrived in less than 2 minutes but seems like they didn’t find anyone. Looked like they may have found casings in front of the DC fire truck maintenance house on Gallatin. No twitter posts from MPD.”

Ed. Note: MPD usually doesn’t post twitter alerts unless a person was hit (occassionally when there is property damage, but usually only when a person is injured or worse.)


From MPD:

“On Monday, December 16, 2019 at approximately 2:22am, MPD units responded to the 900 block of Hamilton St. NW to investigate sounds of gunshots. Units recovered three shell casings. There were no reported injuries or damage to property.”


“On Monday, December 16, 2019 at approximately 1:51am, MPD units responded to the 400 block of Nicholson St. NW to investigate sounds of gunshots. Units recovered four shell casings. There were no reported injuries or damage to property.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to call (202)727-9099. You can also send us information anonymously at TEXT TIPS 50411.”


Oh Dear God

A reader sends this horrifying sight from Brightwood Park: “Dead rat on my engine. My car smelled like dead rat. Got stronger when the heat went on. Found this.”

“Dear PoPville,

On Sunday, October 6th our dog was attacked by an off-leash dog north of intersection of Kennedy and 5th Streets NW. The dog was a female pitbull with tan and white markings. The owner was a young male and had a thick red collar and rope leash in his hand. He suffered scrapings on his knees and hands from helping break up the fight. The pitbull had some bleeding on her ear.

We are working with Animal Control at the Humane Rescue Alliance to try to identify the owner, Read More
