From the MPD 3D Listserv:

“While we saw a few weeks of calm in the area, the homicide on Sunday night is very alarming to us as well. Our detectives are reviewing cameras from the area, and interviewing witnesses to the shooting. I am hopeful that we will be able to get enough evidence to identify the suspect or suspects responsible for this senseless act, and bring them to justice.

Since these incidents began, we increased our deployment of officers to the area with marked and unmarked units, along with plain clothes officers from other divisions within the MPD. We have deployed our light tower to the area almost nightly, and have conducted patrols with DCHA PD. We have also enlisted the help of our partner agencies, to include the ONSE (Officer of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement).

However, the abundance of illegal guns on our streets is still the primary issue, which we have made our priority. Each of the most recent events all share the same thing: The shooter(s) displayed a reckless disregard for human life by firing weapons on the street. There are far too many illegal guns on our streets. What we need to do collectively as a community is change the narrative that recklessly shooting a gun in public or carrying one is ok. What we need is: (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Dating back to November 1, 2018, a homeless woman named Gloria moved into the alley between a former Howard dorm and our condo building. The dorm is under construction and initially, one of my neighbors overheard a construction worker informing Gloria to look out for people trying to steal from the construction site for some amount of money. Since that time, she occupied the alley and regularly yells between the hours of 11pm-7am and outside of those hours as well. She is loud enough that the ground floor up to the third floor can hear her loud and clear.

Fast forward to the month of December and here is a summary of what she has done repeatedly: (more…)
