Community meeting on crime this Tuesday at 6:30

As you've probably read or heard, there's been a rash of violent crime lately in the neighborhood. I just got this from ANC commish Lisa Kralovic, nice to see it. I won't be able to make it, but if you go please comment on what happened.
Please join Councilmember Graham, MPD, and ANC 1A for a community meeting to discuss the recent violence on the blocks of 1400 Spring Road, 1500 Spring Place, and 1400 Parkwood Place.

6:30 PM
Tuesday, July 19
La Cabana Restaurant, 3614 14th St NW (between Spring Road and Perry Place NW)
The Washington Times has an article saying that the triple shooting that occurred on Parkwood was apparently due to an early-morning craps game, and that the street is well-known for illegal gambling. Hmm.

I suppose there's some irony in the fact that I couldn't get to the community meeting on the increase in violence crime tonight because the roads were closed due to a shooting. (There were shots fired at Harvard and 15th street at about 6:40pm tonight.)
