I posted the other day about a shooting incident in Adams Morgan on Saturday night. Apart from very little information on a few blogs, there seems to be no reports on any mainstream media.
One person commented that he saw an undercover police officer exit a nearby restaurant as soon as the shots were heard. There was a very significant increased police presence, a number of ambulances, as well as the taping off of a crime scene. Another commenter said he saw a “college kid loaded into an ambulance with a wrap on his head.” And yet another commented that the following morning a police officer told him that someone was shot during a mugging and that the suspect was arrested.
How come none of this is on the news? It seems to me that a shooting in a residential neighborhood, with a victim no less, should be pretty newsworthy. Or could it be that Adams Morgan has really gotten that bad, that occasional gunfire is to be expected on the weekends?
It’s been two days and no news at all. Something smells bad.
