A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
My neigbor said he heard gun shots around that time. Soon after, there heliocopters flying around. ABC News 7 reports that she was in 40s. She was on her way to work. She was walking through a parking lot towards H St, to catch a bus, when she was shot several times. She was pronounced dead at Med Star.Debbie
Post has a short article up at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/10/AR2009041001727.html:excerpt:An unidentified woman was fatally shot this morning in a vacant lot near the Northeast Washington halfway house where she lived, ... victim was walking in an empty lot at Maryland Avenue and 14th Street shortly after 8:30 a.m. when she was shot several times, police said.
That the Shell No! lot?
It is the Shell No! lot.
Anyone else hear shots last night (4/9)around 10:30 or 11:00pm? Sounded like the shots were near 8th & K?
Fox 5 News reports that the halfway house where the victim lived housed abused women. They would not show the building on TV. This I did not know.Debbie
Wow I was standing there and got on the X8 around 8:35. I had passed three women sitting on the curb of G Street and we exchanged good mornings. I assumed them to be residents of the house, but I'm not sure. I think there is also some soft of day program in an office looking building on G Street (near Checkers) as well, so they could have been waiting for that.

Anon 4:42 - I heard a shot around that time. Thought to call the cops, but was hoping it was just a car back-firing.
Debbie, if that's the case, this could be an abuse issue that spilled over. How horrible. The only upside is that that might make it easier to identify the shooter (if it was related). Multiple shots in the am of at a woman and you have to wonder what's going on.
Fox 5 is reporting that she was a potential witness in some sort of drug related case. She was also a mother of 4... tragic.New Fox 5 report
The thing that bugs me about this, is that the gunman knew that he could kill someone in the daylight, on a relatively busy corner, and get away with it. No chance of him running into the arms of a cop around here, is there?
Does anyone else feel frustrated by the lack of coverage by the Post?
