A reader reported yesterday:

“I’m not sure about victim. Was a bit after 1pm. Saw a couple guys in cuffs down on Ingraham, near Jefferson Liquor.”

Another reader reported from 1st and Q Street, NW around 1pm Monday:

“Open house in Truxton Circle – don’t mind the shell casings”

“I heard it and saw people scatter. 7-8 shots.”

Another reader reported:

“I heard 10-15 shots Monday around 1pm, and someone on Nextdoor posted the news that there was also gunfire last night or early this morning in the same area around Q and 1st NW (she talked to cops, and neither incident was fireworks).”

5405 Georgia Avenue, NW looking south towards Macombo Lounge at Jefferson Street

Back in December we shared some mouth watering Scuttlebutt that the folks from Bloomingdale’s Showtime Bar, across the street from Boundary Stone on Rhode Island Ave., had plans to open up a second spot in Brightwood Park on Georgia Ave (photo above.) [Showtime opened in Bloomingdale back in 2013 and is perennially placed on all the ‘best of’ lists around town.] A week ago I reported that Neptune Room was coming to 5405 Georgia Avenue, NW and because the liquor license placard listed the prolific Andrew Kline as attorney, I suspected this might be the rumored Showtime spot. And now a local food blog confirms it is indeed the Showtime folks: “Team Showtime confirmed”.
