Brian reports from around 3rd and P Street, NW:

“any word on a shooting in Truxton Circle last night at about 8:30? Sounded like three shots. Police were in the area minutes later”

Amy replied: “There were some leftover NYE fireworks getting set off in the neighborhood last night…”

Anyone else hear them in Truxton?

Unrelated but just before 6pm Mona reported to us in NE:

“So, uh, did anyone else hear two massive (like, ground-shaking massive) explosions around NE DC within a few minutes of each other just now or am I having a stroke?”
