I live on this block. The police came by for a statement, but all I can say is that I was woken up by 5-6 gunshots around 3am. But I didn't call them. It's not out of the realm of regular occurrences.

Same re: not calling in the gun shots, which given the fatality, I feel like shit about but considering what cops reported, no amount of help would have saved the victim. Still taken aback that anyone was out -- let alone shooting someone else -- given the rain that was coming down when we checked our window immediately during the shooting. Other than our neighbors also checking the street after the shots, there were no peds out at the time. It's been a quiet 18 mos on our block too, relative to the past, so somewhat disappointing and hopefully isolated.

Shame that all this shooting still goes on 10 years after the neighborhood started developing

It's unusual a 39 year old man gets shot at that time...

Does anyone know anything about the victim?

Pat, there's a Eugene Clarke (with the right birthday & from Temple Hills) with a lengthy criminal history in MD and DC for drugs & assault. Might be the same person.
