High Crime Night in CH

First, we heard a tip of a large police presence outside the Wonderland. Word is that a guy taking some groceries home was jumped by three kids. Haven't heard anything official about that.

Then, we were walking home down 14th street after 11PM and saw a massive police presence and crime scene tape closing off 14th from Irving to Columbia. Channel 7 news was on the scene. It looked like they were starting to remove the crime scene tape to re-open the road as we walked by.

Apparently the reason for 7+ police cars was a child getting shot and killed. DCist has the breaking news and is updating with developments. You can read that here:

And here is the WUSA story: WJLA was still on the scene interviewing folks as of about 11:30PM.
