“Dear PoPville,

what happened on Georgia Ave by the metro at about 5:00 p.m.? I heard a loud sound and didn’t see anything, but they’ve now closed off the whole street from Quincy to New Hampshire and there are police cars, firetrucks, and ambulances. Paramedics just wheeled a teenager out from the Dunkin Donuts on a stretcher.”

Mathew writes: “Georgia Ave/Petworth Metro east entrance is closed. Heavy police/EMS presence. Looks like Georgia Ave is closed. Someone being loaded onto a stretcher now.” Read More

10th st between Quincy and Spring has been closed for a long time because of construction.
