The DC police department reports that on Wednesday afternoon at approximately 4 pm its officers responded to a report of an armed carjacking. Then, as described on the MPD-1D mailing list, "During a canvass in the area, the suspect was apprehended in the 1000 Block of M St., S.E. after he was involved in a traffic accident. The suspect was positively identified and placed under arrest for Armed Carjacking and Carrying a Pistol." The eastern blocks of M between 9th and 11th were closed for a few hours during the investigation.
Did anybody see any of this transpire?
UPDATE, 7/3: This morning's daily crime report on the 1D mailing list seems to say that the carjacking actually happened in front of the Jefferson/Axiom buildings at 70/100 I St. SE. I've written asking for confirmation as to whether this is indeed the same case. I'll post the differing police reports in the comments.
