      Were any prints able to be lifted from the handgun?  Did the fact that you are not equipped with enough manpower to police all 911 calls, prevent you from sitting on this firearm for a period of time to see if someone might come to get it?

      This morning at 02:54 AM, 5D Units received a call for the sound of gunshots in/around the 600 Block of Girard Street NE.  Neighbors reported hearing gunshots and running in the area.  This area has been a recent concern for us specially in the area of 7th and Hamelin Street, NE.  In fact, we just attended a Community Meeting last evening along with Samantha Nolan and the Chancellors Row Neighborhood concerning issues in and around this area. 

      5D Units responded, canvassed and took a report for the Sound of Gunshots reflecting CCN # 122-439.  No victim was located.

      Day Watch Patrol Service Area (PSA)502 Units led by Sergeant Steinhilber responded back to this area for a complete canvass once day light broke and recovered a black 9MM HELWAN semi automatic handgun, from the front of an address in the 600 Block of Girard Street, NE, behind a cable box.  The weapon was loaded with one round in the chamber and one round in the magazine.  The hammer on the weapon was cocked!

      PSA 502 Units also walked a three block radius of the gun recovery in an attempt to locate the spent shell casings with negative results.

      This is just another example of the hard work, dedication and relentless follow up being performed by members of the Fifth Police District on information provided by you all.  We thank you for being our active partner in public safety and please keep in mind, "if you see something, say something".  Call 9-1-1 right away with detailed information when possible.
