Some shooting, maybe an arrest on Q Street

“About a dozen” gunshots brought police to 34th and Q Street just after 3:30 PM this afternoon, according to one witness. There don’t appear to be any injuries, and one man is in handcuffs on a bench nearby.

Anybody got the facts here?

Not too far from where my mom lives. Thank God she was already at work. She could have been caught in the crossfire of this.

Last night there was a lot of gun shots around Fairmont. We all dropped to the floor. Anybody else hear it? Whats going on?

Heard today about a drive by on R Street near 19th about 6:30. You hear something different?

Heard some noises the other day up here at Peter Paul but no sirens so I guess no one was hit.

I was standing out front on Q St. Freaked me out. I have a kid now! Can’t be getting shot out here selling houses.

There were maybe 5 or 6 shots. Then maybe a min later 6 more. In between a bunch of midteens went running from the store. I don’t think they were involved. Probably just hanging out around the store. I was standing right there but didn’t see a shooter. Cops got there in about 30 seconds. I was impressed.

Kid ran down 34th holding a gun. Couldn’t have been more than 14.

I was just a few blocks from there all day working on a renovation/repair project except for when I ran out to grab a late lunch and run an errand or two. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like this kind of stuff (not theft so much as random violence or unexplained gunfire) happens at odd times during the day more often lately, and not just in Oakwood/Chimbo but in the surrounding areas too (someone correct me if I’m wrong – maybe just confirmation bias on my part). I wonder if there’s any common thread linking these incidents like… Read more »

Was the shooting inside the corner store?

@ Tammy Snyder – It is not going to cease until we as citizens recognize that we all must get involved in creating solutions for the violence and education problems we face, instead of bemoaning the problems and passing the responsibility off on the police and government. Yesterday’s incident on 34th Street and the incidents Lee has been witnessing are happening almost daily in Whitcomb Court, leading to the school bus shooting the other day. They happen in other areas of the East End and in Southside too. The apparent common denominator in these particular incidents are young teenagers out… Read more »

I heard something about a gun being thrown in a garbage pail, and nobody was hurt or arrested. Gunshots seem to be a common occurrence around here. Living right across the street from here. Considering the police station is at the other end of this block, and police are always driving up Q street and Oakland doesn’t seem to deter the stupidity.

Obviously, these kids have too much free time and are getting sucked into bad situations. I think schools need to change the suspension policy. Seems counter productive to pull kids out of school. Instead their punishments should be required book reports, projects and after school activities.

If students are truant, I guess we need more truant officers to do a home check for chronic absenteeism and/or skipping school. If the students are suspended, the worst thing RPS can do is require ‘in-home suspension’ for students. Playing video games, texting, watching TV, and roaming the streets isn’t much a punishment, and many of these kids won’t do the required schoolwork anyway. I wish the suspended students could stay in school until 5:00 PM taking literacy courses, anger management classes, and conflict resolution classes involving role playing. Teach accountability, have these students learn to help the teachers and… Read more »
