MPD Taking Steps to Avoid Incidents at Shoe Releases
I thought everyone might be interested in the following missive from MPD (in light of the recent incident where a man fired a gun into a crowd during a sneaker release event on H Street). It's good to know that MPD is being proactive.
There have been several incidents in the city over the past year that have occurred outside of shoe stores that were hosting a “release” of a new shoe model. In the past, MPD was not notified in advance of these events and usually we became aware when a crowd would begin to gather outside of retailers. First District Officers have met with shoe stores’ managers in 1D, who have agreed to provide advance notice to the First District when a shoe release is scheduled.
