Good Evening,

Earlier this afternoon members of the Fifth District responded to a call for an armed robbery in the 300 Blk of R St NW. Upon arriving on scene officers learned that suspects had robbed complainants in the block and that one of the suspects was armed with a handgun. Officers learned through the on scene investigation that the suspects ran into a residence on 3rd St NW. Officers responded and secured the area. A search warrant was later executed at the location where the suspects were observed fleeing inside of. A total of six arrests were made. A handgun was recovered during a search of the location as well as numerous stolen items and suspected stolen items. The officers who responded took six violent offenders of the streets of DC and should  be commended for their excellent work.
