Police Blotter

From the MPD: Last night there was a homicide in the 2000 block of 3rd Street N.E. There was an arrest for Carrying a Pistol Without a License, and it is believed that the homicide charge should be closed out quickly.

Then we had an Armed Carjacking at 24th and Perry Place N.E. About an hour later the vehicle was spotted at 4th and Franklin Street and fled from our officers. The stayed witht the car until the suspects bailed out int he Third District. One arrest was made but the other suspect(s) got away. We are checking to see if they are related to the robberies and carjacking that occurred yesterday. (I heard on the news this am that the suspect ditched the car in Adams-Morgan, and may be carrying a Tec-9.

Finally Officers Oden and Hinton answered a call for a Theft from Auto at 123 W Street N.W. They caught the subject in the act and tried to arrest him but he resisted. During the struggle Officer Hinton was injured (nothing too serious though). They finally were able to handcuff him. He was charged with Assaulting a Police Officer and First Degree Theft.
