Yesterday according to the DC Fire and EMS tweet there was a stabbing at 7th and H. according to me, there was tons of yellow tape, the stores along 7th St in the complex had their exterior doors closed off, people were walking in the street... Oh forgot people normally walk in the street around there anyway.
