Subject: [LeDroitPark] Gunshots last night in LeDroit Park

Good afternoon LeDroit Park Residents,

I received an email from Commander Emerman of the 3rd District Police Station this morning regarding last night's shooting. Please see below. If anyone has any information or footage of this incident, please contact the Metropolitan Police Department.  

At approximately 9:20 last night, we received multiple calls for the sounds of gunshots in the area 200 V, 4th/Elm and 300 V St.  In addition, our Shotspotter detection system alerted to the sounds of gunshots.  Our officers arrived and identified a vehicle that had sustained damage from bullets, along with multiple spent shell casings.  We did not locate any victims on scene or at area hospitals, and no witnesses have indicated if they saw any people being shot at.  One caller observed a white car flee from the area, but it is unknown if that was a suspect, potential victim or possible witness.  We completed a report to document the incident, CCN 18-050178.

This morning, a resident coming out to their vehicle observed bullet damage to theirs as well, so we have updated the report to reflect the second vehicle.
