Shooting in 900 Block of H Street

I'm getting conflicting reports of a shooting on H Street NE. I suspect that what may have happened is that there was a shooting near 8th & H and the victim (or another involved party) progressed to around 11th or 12th and H and headed east. I understand that portions of H Street have been blocked off.

[UPDATE: I'm told the shooting actually occurred in the 900 block of H Street, possibly in the H Street Connection parking lot near the 7-11]

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 8.36.34 AM

ANC 5D Chair Kathy Henderson has scheduled (notice was sent out last week, so it is timely) a special meeting for 7-7:30pm tomorrow evening (because it is never a bad sign to schedule a public meeting for a Friday night). This meeting concerns financial matter (participation in the ANC Security Fund). This is the only topic on the agenda.

Kathy Henderson Issues Press Release Denouncing Fellow ANCs, Includes DC Flag

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASECONTACT-page-001 Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 9.47.07 PM

Kathy Henderson Send Out Another Wacky Press Release

Above you'll find  a the press release (white space cropped for convenience) sent out by ANC 5D Chair Kathy Henderson. At first glance you might mistake this for an official District of Columbia letter because it does have that little DC flag that you see on government press releases and agency communications. But this is no official letter. This is merely Henderson railing against her fellow commissioners on ANC 5D. It starts off with a first paragraph that contains inaccuracies. Henderson suggests that newly elected Commissioner Adam Roberts (who was sworn in after other commissioners because he was out of the country during the initial ceremony) didn't prove he was eligible to act as a fully sworn-in ANC. That's not the case. Roberts was sworn in by Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie. During the meeting Roberts read a communication from Executive Director of the Office of Advisory Neighborhood Commissions Gottlieb Simon indicating that Roberts was eligible to both vote and hold office.

ANC 5D Meeting Part II


Video recorded by Edward Milton

After my last post on the ANC 5D Meeting a commenter asked why Comm. Roberts did not dispute the untrue statements of ANC 5D Chair Kathy Henderson. He did. I am told that he explained it early on in the meeting (not recorded on video), and also at the end of the meeting. Comm. Henderson responded by immediately ending the meeting. That video appears above. The audience member interrupting Comm. Roberts is India Henderson (who formerly held the seat now occupied by Comm. Roberts). India resigned mid-term to move out of ANC 5D.

Thrills! Chills! Deception! It's ANC 5D the Movie!

We have something special today via Edward Milton who filmed the ANC 5D meeting and has pledged to film future meetings. This is especially important because ANC 5D Chair Kathy Henderson continues to insist that all ANC 5D meetings be held completely outside ANC 5D boundaries. Kind of not a bad plan...if you want to make it more difficult for constituents to attend meetings.
