Police closed down the 1100 Block of Sixth Street NE and the 600 Block of L Street NE midday Thursday after gunshots were traded between two vehicles in the area, located a few blocks north of H Street NE Whole Foods and just north of J.O. Wilson Elementary School (660 K St. NE).
Police said the call came in around 11:37 a.m. this morning, and there are no confirmed victims. At this time, they are investigating shell casings on the scene, said a spokesperson.
I’ve talked with Cmdr Fitzgerald. Midday shooting near 6th St & L St NE. Seems it was people in two vehicles trading gunshots. Absolutely unacceptable. Fortunately, no one injured. MPD on scene & investigating; plus reviewing video.
