At least one individual was apparently in custody, a dark-skinned black male in a long white t-shirt, approximately in his 20s. Another individual--a light skinned black male in late teens or early twenties, with long hair tied back in a bun--was observed to be released at the scene. Fourth Precinct Commander Mike Martin was present.
Rumors flew in the crowd: that the incident was a...
...shooting. A high speed chase. A high speed chase AND a shooting. A call to the Fourth Precinct produced the following cryptic information: the incident had nothing to do with the immediate area of 30th and Queen except "the car we were after ended up there." There was no shooting but, in fact, a shooting was "what we were trying to prevent."
It was noted that 3002 Queen Ave. N. had an incredible crop of burdock weeds and so, when I got home, I dropped an email to the 311 system, attaching a photo.
God Bless The Fourth Precinct.
