shots last night?

one from the mailbag:

Hi there,

Just wondering if you heard any reports or follow up police action on shots my wife and I heard fired last night (Tues Sept 16) between 9 and 10pm. We live on the 100 block of Rhode Island NW and had our windows open while watching TV.

For some reason I noticed an odd sounding high pitched motorized bike of some sort driving by, and then what sounded like a half block away toward 2nd St we both heard very distinctly, "pop, pop, pop, pop". It was four evenly spaced pops, definitely gun fire. The bike sound may have been a coincidence, but it sticks out in my mind. After a few minutes a single patrol car came cruising onto T St. NW and drove around for a bit, put it's searchlight on, and tried to find out what was going on, but from what we could see, the officer didn't find anything. In fear of him driving away, we called 911 to report the gun shots so any other calls would be collaborated and we were told there were several calls in the area reporting gun fire.

Shortly thereafter, the cruiser hit the lights and sirens and zoomed east on Rhode Island. That was the last of any action we saw or heard.

Just wondering what others saw or heard or if there was anything mixed into last night's police reports that would match up to this incident.


anyone know anything?
