Stabbing at 14th and Monroe Streets, NW 7:30 PM Thurs. Evening

View Larger Map

Sad news again Thursday night:

“Dear PoP,

I was just walking down 14th street and there was some police activity in front of Speedy Liquor near 14th and Monroe, additionally there seemed to be a good deal of what looked like blood on the sidewalk, and a large wet spot where it looked like they tried, fairly futiley, to wash it away. I was wondering if you knew anything about this, or maybe its nothing at all.”


“You guys all know the vendor who’s always outside the liquor store in the evenings on the SW corner of Monroe and 14th – he’s always (at least in my experience) super friendly. Sometime between about 6:45 and 7:45 this evening, we heard that he got stabbed. Jon walked to the gym, said hi to him, and then when Jon was on his way back the whole area was cordoned off, the vendor was nowhere in sight, and all we heard was a garbled version that somebody took a knife across his stomach.

Here are my questions:

Does anybody know what really happened?
How would we go about finding out?
And I’m embarrassed to say I don’t even know his name – does anybody? If so, I will call hospitals around to find out how he is.”

There was definitely a stabbing around 7:30 pm on 14th Street near Monroe. I’m afraid that’s all the info I have at the moment. Will update as more info becomes available.
