“I found a man’s watch and wedding band in a Car2Go on the morning of October 7th at the 800 block of Marietta Place NW. The folks at Car2Go have not been helpful in getting these items back their owner, despite having the information about who used the car before I did. If this could be yours, please provide your contact information. If you can describe the watch accurately, I will arrange to get the items back to you. Thanks!”

Update on the dog, Cora, hit by a stray bullet in Brightwood Park at 6:30pm Monday:

“Though I may wish there were canine HIPAA laws protecting my privacy, I’m very grateful for all the well-wishes from the PoPville. I’m home, resting, and going to make a full recovery. They don’t call me #hardcora for nothing.

I’d also love to give a shout out to our incredible, capable, leg-saving dog sitter. She was the definition of cool under pressure.”

dog shot

“Dear PoPville,

There was a shooting in Brightwood around 6:30pm today [Monday] on 7th and Jefferson. I was about 20 feet away walking the dogs I’m dog sitting for. I am fine but unfortunately one of the dogs was hit in the leg. She is being a champ though and is currently being treated at the vet. It’s a shame because there has been a police presence on this particular corner every night. I guess that means shootings are happening during the day when more folks/bystanders are around? Just please be safe everyone.”

Update this morning:

“She’s staying at the vet for now but fortunately shouldn’t need surgery. And props to all the neighbors who came outside when I got back asking how she was doing!”


A reader reports:

“At about midnight a car was heading north on 5th Street NW, evidently with four flat tires. When spotted by a cop in the corner of 5th and Hamilton, the car flipped a u-turn and attempted to speed away with cops in pursuit. A block away, he crashed into the pole on the corner and got out to run. He was apprehended shortly thereafter on foot. Cops were looking under nearby cars for something he might has tried to drop while running.”
