At approximately 4:30 PM on December 30, 2013, MPD officers received information that a person of interest in reference to a homicide was in the 3600 block of New Hampshire Avenue, NW. When officers arrived at the location, an adult male subject fled on foot. The officers pursued the subject on foot and noticed that he kept reaching into his pocket. As they continued to pursue the subject, the officers observed the subject remove a handgun from his pocket and throw it onto the roof of a building in the block. The officers were able to apprehend the subject, and then return to the area where they observed the subject toss the weapon. Located on the roof was a handgun. The subject was placed under arrest for the Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol.
A few hours later, at approximately 9:20 PM, MPD officers were patrolling the 700 block of Rock Creek Church Road, NW, when they smelled an odor of burning marijuana coming from a group of individuals at the corner of Rock Creek Church Road and New Hampshire Avenue, NW.
