Update from a reader: “I was about 5 feet from the shooting in Shaw at 2pm yesterday. I had to run away and saw and heard bullets clinking off of metal. There was a car in the middle of the street that was shooting towards someone maybe five feet from me. I feel very lucky to be alive. Everyone crouched down and started running away. People were hiding behind cars. Running down the metro steps. Running down streets. I had no idea where to go. I didn’t know when I was safe.”

I’m hoping someone has more info about what happened! It hasn’t stopped being busy from what I can tell (and I walk by it multiple times a day usually), even saw the owner/ family getting their daughter from the school nearby a few weeks ago still, so it just seemed to come out of nowhere.

My boyfriend parked on Sherman Ave NW on Sunday around 4pm, across the street from the Shaw District Dogs. When we went to move the car today, it was completely wrecked.

Did anyone take pictures of the tree on our car, or see what organization took care of/cleaned up the tree?” Read More

MPD reported around 1:45am: “Shooting in the 700 b/o N Street, NW. No Lookout.”
Updates if/when more info is released.
I thought that I would shoot over a message in regard to our building and neighborhood. A few weeks ago, a male and female (whom we are assuming are a couple or partnered) entered the vestibule of our condo building in Shaw/Logan Circle, loitered, and pulled the fire alarm at 4:00 a.m. Since then, there have been numerous attempts for this couple to enter the building again, Read More
