Addressing DC’s Rising Deadly Violence

DC police are looking for at least three men behind the latest incident of deadly gun violence in the city. Nine people were shot in Columbia Heights in broad daylight, killing one and wounding eight others.

One week ago on July 13th,  27 year old Senquea Whitley was shot to death on Clay place NE around two o’clock in the afternoon.  Last month, home security video caught a shootout between a half a dozen young men in the middle of the afternoon in DC.  It’s scary.  How is the city addressing this issue?
