Crime Scene tape generic

A possible barricade situation in northwest D.C. is over and streets have been reopened.

A woman flagged police officers down Friday morning and said at least three armed men had entered her residence in the 400 block of Q Street, said Cmdr. Hilton Burton. Police at the scene contacted an 80-year-old woman inside the residence, who told police that no men were with her inside the home and that she had not seen or heard anything.

Police planned to re-interview the woman who made the complaint, Burton said. The relationship between the two women was not clear.

For much of the morning New Jersey Avenue was closed between R and P streets. Many people could not get to businesses or homes in the area.
