FOX 5 DC reporter Tisha Lewis welcomed the audiencefollowed by remarks from Tony Dixon, president of the DC chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE). After the screening, April Ryan brought the cast to the stage for a lively discussion on the origins of “Shots Fired,” what audiences will take away from it and the process of filming.
