About those “53 shots fired” in Truxton Circle yesterday afternoon. It’s one thing to read it, it’s another to see it.

From a discussion on the PoPville Facebook page:

“Yep, many of us across the street have bullets in our living rooms & bedrooms!

My downstairs neighbors have a clean bullet hole through a second story window, and across the room through the wall of their loft.”

A reader reports:

“Yesterday there was a shooting near Dunbar high school. 53 shots were fired. The suspects drove off and crashed right outside the mosque in NW. The street was closed off and mosque was blocked off. I passed by this and thought it was moving. Believers were praying in the parking lot near the mosque since they couldn’t go inside.”

From MPD around 5pm Thursday:

“The Third District is currently investigating a shooting in the 400 block of N St., Northwest. Officers on the scene have two gunshot victims who have been transported to area hospitals for treatment.

Pedestrians and motorists should avoid the area due to road closures.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

This is the former Brass Knob Warehouse space and the future Chapman Stables condos.

The liquor license placard for Republic Cantina says:

“New Restaurant, serving tacos and other Tex-Mex food. Total Occupancy Load is 100, with seating for 60. Requesting a Sidewalk Café with 40 seats and Summer Garden with 10 seats, along with an Entertainment Endorsement.”


Ed. Note: Of course simply typing cantina has me weeping again for Cantina Marina. But such is life. The gods giveth and they taketh away.

A reader reports (thanks to all messaged):

“Shooting on N St on August 26th

The shooting happened around 11 am on N Street NW between North Capitol and 1st Street. It was closer to 1st Street than North Cap (the police recovered a lot of shell casings on the corner of N and 1st).

I was in my backyard when the shooting happened. There were 2 or 3 shots followed by a barrage of shots. Initially I thought it was gunfire, but then there were so many occurring so fast I thought, “No, this HAS to be fireworks.” Some other neighbors I talked to later thought the same thing.

I talked to a neighbor that lives on N street. He said he was leaving to go to the dry cleaners and saw a group of teenagers on N Street who were very animated. Their behavior made him so uncomfortable that he actually called the police BEFORE the shooting asking them to send a patrol car by the area to disperse the kids. I’m not sure if he knows this from talking to other neighbors or the police, but he told he that 9 people in total called the police before the shooting.

I do not know how many shooters there were. The above neighbor told me he knew of one kid being arrested. From the shell casings and bullet holes, it looks like at least one person was on the corner of 1st and N street (dot in “shooter location” attached) shooting back down and across N Street (dot in “target area of shooter”). In the “target area”, there were numerous bullet holes in two vehicles (including Robin’s), a street sign, and the house of the neighbor mentioned above. A third car on the same side of the street as the shooter(s?) also had a bullet hole.”

“Dear PoPville,

The displaced neighbors [8 people from the 200 block of Morgan St, NW] are working with the Red Cross for some short term needs, but in addition a neighbor has started a GoFundMe to bridge some gaps.

A Facebook group has been set up to track progress and help organize other donations and efforts as needed.

And BKK Cookshop on NY Ave is donating 10% of their proceeds next Tuesday, July 25 to help those displaced as well.”
