“Something’s happened at 15th and around Isherwood NE, and it ain’t good.” photo by Phil Yabut

At approximately 8:28 pm, members of the Fifth District responded to the listed location for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, the members located six adult male victims suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and after finding no signs consistent with life, one of the victims remained on the scene until transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. The additional five victims were transported to area hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The decedent has been identified as 24 year-old Lance Melvin, of Southeast, DC.” Read More

Update: OP has called 911.

“The police have come and gone. They said that it definitely was an old projectile. A specialist came and x-rayed it to see if there was anything inside the pipe, but it was empty and not live. So, thank goodness that all is well and safe! Thanks to you and everyone who commented!

Unfortunately, I don’t have any insight into how it got there, just seemingly discarded, not even buried, under the porch. I have lived here for 3 years and the prior owners would be in their 80s, but I don’t know anything about them. It could be a “souvenir” that a vet brought back (the police said they find a lot of grenades). But one cop who is about to retire after 28 years on the force said he’s never seen anything like this before!”

“Dear PoPville,

I found this thing that looks like either some kind of lawn ornament or a missile! I found it only slightly buried underneath my front porch in the Kingman Park neighborhood. I have no idea what it is! It’s fairly heavy and made of metal. One of the pics has my hand in it for scale.” Read More
