From MPD around 7:30pm Monday night:
“The Third District is currently investigating an assault that occurred in the 1600 block of New Jersey Avenue, NW. The victim has been transported to the hospital for medical treatment. The assault occurred inside of a residence so there should be no interruption of traffic flow in the area.
Should you have information related to this investigation please call our Command Information Center at 202-727-9099 or send a text tip to 50411.”
Update this morning via email:

“Last night we were alerted to sounds of gunshots in the area of First Place and M St NW at approximately 20:45 hours. At the time we located two vehicles that appeared to be struck by gunfire, but no victims. However shortly after 2100 hours a victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen responded to a local hospital for treatment. The wounds are not believed to be life threatening.
If you have any information about this case, please contact the First District’s Detectives Office at 202-299-2025. As always, if you witness any suspicious or disorderly activity in that area, please call 911 immediately.”
Thanks to all who passed on this lovely message from NextDoor:
“Not sure how to put this, so let’s plunge right in. At about 3pm today, my roommate looked out her window, which faces into our back steps. For context, these steps are set back pretty far from the alley. To get to them, you’d have to make your way through some brush (we’re not great landscapers).
Anyway, when my roommate looked out the window, she saw two people in the midst of a very special hug. It was a doggy-style special hug, with the woman bent over the steps. I have photo evidence of this, which I know SEEMS creepy until you remember that two strangers were having sex AT MY HOUSE. I will spare you all these photos out of neighborly kindness. (more…)

Someone stuck some fire starters into our car wheel Sunday morning and set our car on fire. I saw that you had some posts about car arson in DC, do you know of recent cases? It’s pretty scary and we want to know if it’s part of a recent pattern. Someone mentioned that there were some cases of car arson in Logan this summer.

Since the incident, we heard from others living in the area that there’s been a string of car arsons in the shaw/truxton circle/logan region over the last few months. People have been helpful in updating the fire detectives working on their case. I’m sure the detectives will connect the dots, but I’m trying to proactively see if there are other similar incidents in the area.”
