I received a media inquiry about folks who may be trying to shut down the house mentioned in the post about Sat. night’s shooting in Mt. P. If anyone has worked toward shutting it down please email me directly at princeofpetworth (at) gmail (dot) com.

After the jump see news about an candlelight vigil for a killing that occurred in December at 11th and Q Streets, NW.
