There was a rash of shootings last night in the area, both where individuals were fatally shot. On 14th and Columbia, a 19-year-old male was fatally shot in the head, there was also a victim who was shot in the leg and is in the hospital. It is being called a targeted shooting that is likely related to the suspected gang killing of Paul Jones back in January.
On Kalorama and Champlain, two plainclothes officers and a uniformed officer intercepted a robbery. The suspect shot at the police and the police killed the suspect in the midst of gunfire. One officer was shot in the back, another in the leg.
On an unrelated noted, now that I’m somewhat settled in my new place, expect regular posts to resume.
