Police and Bangs on Georgia Avenue Cause Concern Tuesday Night
I received a few emails asking about a police presence and explosions on Georgia Avenue that occurred around 9 p.m. on Tuesday, December 13th, near the intersection of Newton Place, NW. In reaching out, I was able to find out that it was part of an investigation conducted by the ATF in which MPD assisted in executing a search warrant using their Emergency Response Team. The explosions/bangs people heard were the result of flash-bang grenades used as part of the operation.
The investigation is ongoing with no additional specifics at this time.
