Shooting in the 1800 Block of Maryland Ave

Screen Shot 2012-12-06 at 11.09.22 PM 

I first became aware of the situation when a Twitter follower sent me the tweet below:


 Shortly after I was walking down Florida Avenue when I saw an ambulance and a police car speed towards NW (quickly followed by another MPD vehicle). All of their lights were flashing.

Apparently, there was a shooting. The good news is that MPD caught the suspected shooter.
But it doesn't sound likely that the victim will make it.

A Washington Post blog reports that the victim has died. According to the post, Kathy Henderson (who is misidentified as an ANC Commissioner) says it was a domestic dispute between a husband and wife.  The victim was 63 years old.

Don't feed the troll people. This person leaves the same comment on every crime post. Normally, I just delete it as long as no one has responded to it yet. When you get upset and respond to them at all they get what they want. Seriously, trolls aren't worth your time. Just hope that he gets the meds he needs and go on with your day.
