5th and P Street, NW
VJ first reported at 9pm: “just heard about 10 rounds of gun fire in Shaw?”
Many others confirmed hearing the shots and Will captured the scene above noting a man was placed into custody. Since I didn’t see any official MPD reports apparently, fortunately, nobody was hit by the gunfire.
Earlier around 8:10pm MPD reported: “Alert: MPD is on the scene of a confirmed Shooting in the 3900 Block of Clay Pl NE. No Lookout Information.”
In Petworth just near Sherman Circle, MPD reports:
“On March 19, 2020, at approximately 1:25am in the 4700 block of 5th St NW, a male shot and grazed another male in the face during a dispute. The victim was transported to a local hospital and listed in stable condition. The suspect was placed under arrest for ADW Gun. The firearm was recovered, and there is no threat to the community.
This case is a great example of expedient police service and superb police work on the part of Fourth District members.”
Last night my wife and I heard what sounded like two cars hitting each other. Turns out it was a car swiping the side of a minivan. But when I went outside seconds later, I found a white sedan collide head-pn into the parked minivan and then drive off into the alley, followed by another car. I called the police and gave them a statement, and I suggested that it looked intentional. Read More

Yesterday, our neighbors woke up to this graffiti on the property. Apparently it’s the 18th Street gang (according to another neighbor). We live in upper Petworth and wonder if anyone has seen anything similar? There is also graffiti from MS-13 at the other end of our alley. I should mention that we have contacted Brandon Todd and the neighbors have filed a police report.”

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.)
“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.”
