An anonymous reader sends a photo and eyewitness account of what sounds like attempted murder on 20th Street…
I was riding up R Street up from Mosby Street and I passed a girl walking and a guy on a bike. She pointed up ahead and said to the bicyclist, “There he is, go fight him!”
He reached down towards his left ankle, she was like, “don’t do that!”
The dude rode around the corner right on 20th Street and started shooting at another guy walking on the sidewalk. Maybe 5 or 6 shots.
He runs out and gets back on his bike, but seems too andrenalized to ride, drops it and runs towards the Mosby apartments across from MLK Middle School. She points to the bike, is like “don’t worry about it” and gets on it to start riding.
And then I took her photo.
She says, “Did you just take my picture?”
I was like, “This is your neighborhood. Why are y’all fucking shooting each other?”
And then I ride my bike as quickly away as I could.
No word yet on whether or not anyone actually got shot, etc.
