“On Monday, June 17, 2019 at approximately 1:30 AM, Fifth District members were flagged down in the 1800 block of 2nd Street, NE by a victim who reported that two suspects had just attempted to carjack him at gunpoint.

The officers quickly located one of the suspects in the 300 block of V Street, NE and were able to apprehend him.

Also recovered during the investigation was a Glock 19 semi-automatic handgun, which was equipped with a high-capacity magazine and loaded with 28 rounds of ammunition.

This is yet another example of the fine work done each day by the members of the Fifth District!”

A reader reports:

“Not sure if anyone has reported this yet but there were 5-6 gunshots in the first block (0-100) of Q street NE last night just after 11 pm. Right after the shots you could hear tires screeching. A lot of neighbors came out and at least 3 cop cars and cops on bicycles were on the street within a few minutes talking to neighbors. Luckily it seemed like no one was injured.”

Per earlier shots fired posts, we’re not getting many official reports recently so if you happen to hear them please email [email protected] or contact us @PoPville so we can keep a record. Thanks.
