Around 11:15am Nick reported:

“Sounded like more shots fired over in this area in the past 30 mins. Maybe closer to 8th and Rhode Island.”

I asked if other had heard them and Steve replied:

“I did while driving N on RI – called 911 to report. Saw one individual raise a gun and fire down 8th towards individual near RI intersection. Heard 4 shots fired before gunman fled into apartment complex.
Was at red light of that intersection, so looking up 7th NW & gunman pop from behind fence of complex, fire 4 shots (gun up & aimed) towards intersection/RI & possibly 5th shot before dashing off. Couldn’t see who they were firing at, but saw individual near car at intersection”

Jeni reports:

“This incident happened Sunday at 4.55pm in Shaw. We were walking down S street toward 7th street when a guy emerged from the alley, walking at an odd pace and kind of spaced out (I assumed from the heat) and we let him pass us since we had both dog and stroller so we’re taking up real estate. Just as he passed us two young men crossed the street, and one of them pulled out a gun with an augmented clip. By the time we processed what was happening, the other guy had stopped so was now just behind us leaving us between him and the gun. Thankfully they two guys didn’t care that we were there and walked straight up to him and held the gun to his head, so we ran around the corner while calling the police and warning others not to turn the corner.

Started getting tons of messages around 8:30pm last night about a big fire department response next to the Passenger in Shaw. Fortunately, and in my wildest dreams I could not make this up, “Upon gaining entry found an unattended smoke machine that activated.” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to report an incident of harassment at N and 8th St. NW (8:45pm Wed. night.) My husband and I were on scooters on our way home up 8th when three kids moved into the street and we had to come to a stop to avoid colliding with them. They threatened to take our scooters, and when we refused, one of them started kicking mine over and over. Read More
