Patrick Street Mayhem

No, we're not talking about the BRT proposal.

The Growler was working on the second cup of nuclear-strength chai this morning when the news flashed on WRC: overnight there had been a double slaying on N. Patrick Street near the Samuel Madden Uptown public housing project.

The bodies were found literally in the middle of the 800 block of N. Patrick Street around 2:15 a.m. Click here to read more.

WTOP's story stated "Neighbors and police say there have been few problems in this particular neighborhood."

Not sure who WTOP's reporters would have talked to in the dead of night, but whoever the source was who provided background info apparently forgot about the still-unsolved murder of David Murphy in the 400 block of N. Patrick Street back in December 2005. That brazen shooting took place around 5 p.m. during evening rush hour.
