From MPD:

“Homicide 2800 block of 14th St, NE

On the night of September 24, 2017 at approximately 9:50 p.m. several gunshots were fired at the location striking an adult male in the back. 5D Officers arrived moments later and attempted lifesaving measures to no avail. The victim was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead. Anyone that may have information to the listed offense is urged to contact the Metropolitan Police Departments Homicide Branch at 202-645-9600 or the Command Information Center at 202-272-9099. Further information will be forthcoming.”

Nicole notes with understandable frustration:

“I cannot believe that DC’s finest can’t shut down the open air drug market at this corner. And this is right by the fire station and planed new shelter. Where a woman lost her twins last year, and a block from where a young man was shot last week, and 2 blocks from where a young woman was shot dropping off someone.”
