Subject: [LeDroitPark] Update: Shooting in 200 block of V St NW
Good morning –
A brief update: MPD will continue to have increased deployments in the area. Their investigation is ongoing.
As part of the NEAR Act legislation I supported, the Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement and partners are doing intervention work on site as well. Director McFadden tells me:
The ONSE office is working with our prevention and intervention contractors to support the safety of the LeDroit Park community. On 12/4/18, our contractors met with individuals in LeDroit Park and the surrounding area in an attempt to identify parties involved in the recent rash of incidents. Furthermore, Collaborative Solutions for Communities ( Wards 1-5 contractor) responded to the shooting incident yesterday and will continue to work on this matter to reduce possible retaliation efforts. Additionally, ONSE will coordinate weekly engagement in this community and will keep you updated on progress and any challenges.
If you have any information that may be helpful or have video of the area, please reach out to MPD at 202-727-9099.
