Google maps satellite view

This morning started nice, then police, helicopters and ERT (DC’s version of SWAT) closed down Georgia Avenue between Hamilton and Kennedy Streets (5200 to 5300 Georgia Ave NW) due to a man with a gun, allegedly barricaded inside 5320 Georgia Ave.

WJLA reports it may stem from a 911 call regarding an attempted home burglary at 4am on Ingraham Street.

DC Police report no injuries and that no one is in danger.

Update: A massive response, however, that is now over. MPD reports the streets have reopened.
