So i was running down a back alley south of H St NW, between 21st ST NW and 22nd ST NW, and right when i came upon G St NW there was a small wooden gate leading onto the street. I saw some baddies on the other side of the road and opened fire, but wasn't able to shoot through the open gate. Instead, i saw some "sputter" like you would get when firing upon wood. I was able to pass through the open wooden gate and once upon G ST NW, there was no problem anymore. The wooden gate is passable without any problem, since it's open, you just can't shoot through the open gate.
