Gun Robbery: 8:51 PM, 14th & W Streets
Got this Police Alert last night. There was a robbery-with-gun at 8:51 p.m. at 14th and W Streets NW… a strip with an awfully lot of new condos and restaurants.
It is the number of guns being used in robberies lately that alarms me. Sure, any robbery can result in someone being badly hurt (or killed), but guns add another level of danger. Then there is the time this robbery occurred. This was not the middle of the night. In our area, 8:51 p.m. is prime time for people coming and going to restaurants, grocery stores, the gym, etc.
Would visible foot patrols on 14th and U Streets help… especially in the evening hours? I don’t know, but I have to ask. If you live in that area, what do you think?
