Wild pool party leads to car being shot up

05/21/2017 9:00 AM by

Got the query on Facebook last night – “Not sure whether gunfire or fireworks, sounded close, and we’re at 21st & M. About 8:15. Heard anything?”

Nothing official but reddit/r/rva has an account of a pool party gone wrong and a drive-by at what sounds like the Shockoe Valley View Apartments at Cedar and Mosby:

There was a big party at my apartments pool. It was obvious most of the people at the party do not live here, so the cops came and broke it up. They were also being very loud, obnoxious, and rude to a mother who asked them to quiet down.

When I was walking back from the gym, you could see the people all leaving the area. Then I started hearing gunshots.

It was surreal. I started running away and ducking. There were about 50 other people running away as well.

While we were fleeing, I saw two cops running towards the gunfire. It’s hard to describe the respect for them I felt in that moment.

EDIT: It appears to have been a drive by. I walked over to the crime scene and saw the car that got shot up.
