Sandbag Situtation at 333 Elm NW

29 May

Not all the details are clear, but there was/is  a sandbag situation down the block from me. An older woman, Cristine at 333 Elm NW, threatened a friend, then suicide, then a DC mental health professional. In the end it seems hundreds of police, two swat teams, ladder trucks and even police snipers are involved.  This started around 11 and is still going on now, at 5 PM.

Hard to see but this Swat member had full battle gear on, some sort of automatic weapon and a peanut butter sandwich in a bag.

Odd Swat vehicle with the guys up on top in two rows.

The ladder truck used to get the snipers onto people’s roofs.

    In the end some of the cops showed up at my house party. They were reserved on details, but in the end they talked the woman down and no one got hurt. May have consumed a lot of resources, but in the end it was ok.
