A reader reported:

“We were walking our dog in Petworth around 6:45 this morning and a fleet of about 10 Park Police cars was rolling East on Emerson, including an armored Humvee. A group in full military armor raided a house on Kansas. They stopped traffic and there is still a helicopter circling as of 7 AM. Any idea what might have been going on and why Park Police?”

MPD reported:

“The United States Park Police executed a search warrant in the 4900 block of Kansas Ave. NW. MPD units assisted with traffic control and air support until the residence was secured by USPP.”

US Park Police reported:

“A USPP Officer has been shot in the lower extremity during a search warrant in Northwest DC. He was transported to a local hospital and is in stable condition. No active threat to the community and the scene is secure. Press release forthcoming.”

3000 Georgia Ave, NW

Thanks to Cait for passing on from the New Communities Initiative:

“BELL Architects has been selected to lead the design of the acre park that will front Georgia Avenue and Columbia Road NW. The chosen team also includes the Landscape Architecture Bureau and Wiles Mensch Corporation. A key factor in BELL’s selection was their experience and qualifications leading comprehensive community design. Accordingly, BELL believes that community engagement is the key to a successful project and community satisfaction. Their project team has experience leading interactive community meetings to gain feedback to incorporate into the design. The first community-wide meeting is being planned for March 2018 and will be announced broadly.”
