Police Activity on Florida Last Night

There was sizable group of police cars on Florida [maybe near 8th street?] around 9:30 last night. Does anyone know what was going on?

==========================
UPDATE

A user comment was left indicating that a motorcyclist was hit on Florida Avenue last night and this was the police event.

I asked a police officer at 7th and Florida (where I live), and he said a motorcyclist was hit. They were diverting all southbound traffic onto 7th.

Couldn't find anything about it in the news yet...

Last night (Friday), my wife thought she heard automatic gunfire. I slept through it (again. Would that count for being "desensitized"?). Any word on that? I couldn't get anything from the listservs

8th and el,

i heard something like that too on friday night, but i soon concluded it was fireworks. sounded like a huge fireworks show coming from somewhere south of us. maybe at the nats stadium?

8th and el,

I believe the sound you heard was from the fireworks show as a result of Nieves' 9th inning dinger that won the game for the Nationals (against Mets) Friday night (11:30ish?). What a game!!

I would have never thought the sound would have carried so far.
