Re: [MPD-5D] Weapon Recovery in the 600 Block of Girard Street, NE
- I too attended the neighborhood watch meeting, appreciate the work of MPD-5. We just need a continued and concentrated aggressive effort on the part of MPD-5 to eradicate that continuous "bad element" that continues to loiter in our communities. No good can come from groups of men hanging on street corners during the day and night. There is more going on those corners then just conversation!We appreciate all MPD-5 efforts to keep the corners of 7th and Franklin and 7th and Hamlin and all neighborhood streets safe!Again, thank you MPD-5 for you tough jobs!StephanieStephanie "The One""It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."

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.
