5501 14th Street, NW via Swampoodle’s facebook

“Dear PoPville,

There are a lot of rumors swirling around the 16th St Heights neighborhood that the people behind Boundary Stone are taking over the Swampoodle space. Their sponsoring the Kennedy Street Festival only strengthened those rumors. Have you heard anything about this? Something you can get to the bottom of?”

BREAKING: One of the owners of Boundary Stone is indeed in negotiations to take over the Swampoodle space at 14th and Colorado Ave, NW. Now keep in mind the negotiations are still ongoing but if I was a betting man I’d say there is a very, very good chance this will happen. STAY TUNED for many many more details if/when it does.

Last night a reader reported around 10pm:

“possible shooting at 5th and Jefferson NW Street closed & cop looking for casings (looks like it at least).”

Other residents have been inquiring about the incident on the listserv, will update when/if MPD responds.

Also this morning readers write:

“There were at least 10 police cars on the corner and they had blocked off the Randolph Street coming off of 14th St NW. Any idea what’s going on over there? They had a fancy looking guy in a suit walking towards what I assumed was the site of the incident.”

shots fired

A reader reported around 6:30pm Monday night:

About 10 shots fired. They hit two homes. Street blocked off between Gallatin and Farragut”

MPD reported:

“At approximately 1823 hours, the 4th District received a call for the sounds of gunshots in the 5000 b/o 5th Street N.W.

Upon MPD arrival, members discovered shell casings on the street and one on the front porch of a house in the 5000 b/o 5th Street N.W. A closer examination of the shell casings revealed that the shells in the street were a different caliber from the shell casing located on the front porch.

Members also discovered that three house sustained minor damage as a result of the shots being fired. (1 window and drain gutters)

4th District members canvassed the area for witnesses and learned that a group of individuals were sitting on the front porch of the house in the 5000 b/o 5th Street N.W. One of the individuals on the porch, who also lives at the location, was identified. While this individual and his friends were on the porch, another male or group of males approached on foot. Words were exchanged and shots were fired.

We believe at this time that an individual on the porch exchanged gun fire with the individual(s) on the street due to the location of the shell casings found and different calibers.

Detectives are interviewing the person on the porch who lives at the location at this time. The individual is being very uncooperative.

Detectives are in the process of obtaining a search warrant to check the inside of the location for one of the weapons involved in this incident.”
