Moultrie Courthouse Evacuated

As a follow up, we've learned that the DC Superior Court was evacuated this morning following reports of a suspicious unattended vehicle.

Everyone was evacuated from the building, including prisoners in holding cells, which probably accounts for why pedestrian traffic has been closed around the Courthouse (at 5th and Indiana).

UPDATE:  Thanks to a reader tip, we learned that 50-100 US Marshals were surrounding the building this morning, keeping our neighborhood safe despite the suspicious vehicle.  DCPD declared the area safe at 10:56AM this morning, and all streets are now re-open.
