Streets Closed in D.C. Neighborhood After Reports of Rooftop Gunfire --UPDATE


A friend in Washington writes to tell me that there is (what tweets reveal to be) a "suicidal transgender woman" firing a rifle from a rooftop building at 19/K NW in the heart of D.C.'s lobbying district. Police have cordoned off three-block radius and it is causing a rush hour traffic nightmare. 

Not sure if anyone has been hurt, but wishing the best for all. Let me know if you hear more.

UPDATE: Sounds like the woman is in custody and no one was injured.


UPDATE:



The shooter's name is Sophia Dalke, 31, of Springfield, Va., and as suspected, it did seem she was suicidal. Still, she was charged with assault on a police officer while armed for firing a gun at them after a 10-hour standoff.


And if this photo she posted isn't a cry for help, I don't know what is.
