From an email sent by an MPD Lieutenant serving as Watch Commander:
On Saturday, July 25, 2015, Fifth District received calls for service for sounds of gun shots in the 1600 block of Benning Road Northeast. As units arrived they observed a late model four door sedan leaving the area at a high rate of speed. As the units got closer they discovered that the complaint was onboard and being transported by friends to HUH. Once at the hospital the units learned that the crime scene was in the rear of the Pentacle Apartment Complex which is located in the 1600 block of Benning Road Northeast. Units were dispatched to locate a crime scene. The responding units located the crime scene in the 700 block of 16th Street Northeast.
The location is slightly off. Below is the DC Alert that gets the block right (or at least the 1500 block of Benning is where the Pentacle is located). This is in the Rosedale neighborhood.
5d is working a confirmed shooting at 0430 hrs in the 1500 b/o Benning Road, NE. LOF B/M w/ dreads on a bicycle. CALL 911 W/ EVENT # 201504…— dcalerts (@dcalerts) July 25, 2015
