DC leaders deal with another violent and deadly weekend…

DC’s Mayor and Police Chief held a press conference over the weekend following a string of fatal shootings. On Saturday alone 7 people were shot. Officers were called to a triple homicide on Fort Davis Place in Southeast.

No arrests have been made in any of the cases and neither Police Chief Peter Newsham or DC Mayor Muriel Bowser have one single reason for the uptick in homicides. They both agree that it has to do with the number of guns on the streets and some retaliation over neighbor disputes or drug deals. Chief Newsham is expected to introduce some new initiatives but those details have not been released.
