Thanks to all who messaged last night:
“Someone’s was just shot on 11th and K SE. outside Potomac Gardens. It’s a serious situation with massive police response.”
“Alert: MPD is on the scene of a shooting in the 1100 block of K Street SE”
“On 1/23/19 at approximately 9:15 p.m., officers from the First District responded to the 1100 block of K Street SE for a report of a shooting. On scene, officers located a juvenile male who had sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim was transported to an area hospital for further treatment. At this time, there is no description of the suspect[s].
The case is being actively investigated by First District Detectives. Investigators can be reached at (202) 299-2025, should you have any information about the incident. Alternatively, information can be forwarded to investigators by contacting the Metropolitan Police Department’s Command Information Center at (202) 727-9099.”
Also regarding other messages I received around 8:15pm:
“Massive police presence at 6th & Florida NE near Union Market/Gallaudet. Any idea what’s going on?”
One reader reported:
“MPD Says a mountain bike officer was hit by a vehicle. The officer has minor injuries. The striking vehicle remained at the scene”
hahaha been a minute since we’ve had a good one – thanks to my protege, Barred in DC, for sending from near RFK.

I’m sure that you have read about the deal that Dan Snyder/the NFL is trying to jam through Congress to set up a new Redskins stadium at the RFK location. Charles Allen, Ward 6 Councilman, has started a petition for those who oppose such a move and any DC taxpayer money being used to fund such a stadium. Any chance you would post a link to the petition for those who might also be interested? Just FYI, I’m not affiliated in any way with his office — just a very concerned citizen who might just give up all hope on this city if Mayor Bowser throws away millions of my tax dollars to fund a stadium for possibly the worst franchise in all of American sports.

“Apparently someone is already done with their tree (obviously freshly cut and only a couple days old). In good shape at D Street and 16th if someone needs a tree….”

“First District Detectives are currently investigating an Unarmed Carjacking which occurred in a rear parking lot in the 1300 Block E Street SE at approximately 8:00 PM Tuesday evening.
A female complainant reported that while removing items from her parked vehicle, a male subject approached from behind and pushed her to the ground. The subject picked up a set of keys dropped by the complainant, started the complainant’s car and drove southbound on 13th Street SE.

“Today, at approximately 10:30 a.m., officers from the First District responded to a report of a robbery near the intersection of 20th St NE and C St NE. On the scene, the officers found an elderly female victim who had a vehicle maintenance issue and was pulled over to the side of the road. While she was attempting to get assistance, two juvenile female suspects approached her and appeared to be assisting her. Instead, the suspects assaulted the victim with a chemical defense spray and stole her purse and other personal items. (more…)

“I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that last night First District Units assisted the Narcotics and Special Investigations Division, Sixth District, and Helicopter Branch with the pursuit a vehicle wanted in multiple robberies. At approximately 2229 hours, the vehicle came into the First District from the East Capitol Street Bridge before ending up in the 1600 block of Massachusetts Ave SE. All four juvenile suspects fled from the vehicle, but were quickly apprehended. The suspects were arrested for at least six (6) robberies, carjackings, and attempt robberies all of which occurred yesterday in the 4th, 5th, and 6th Districts as well as Prince George’s County. Fortunately, no one was injured and no property was damaged during this pursuit and apprehension. Have a great day.”
