“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to make you aware of an incident tonight [Thursday]: at around 6:35 pm, I was on M street NE walking from 1st toward North Capitol when I saw a group of three teenage girls.

One of them fired a stun gun at my dog, which thankfully missed. The girl thought it was funny and was doing it as a joke, but if she had hit him, it likely would’ve killed him. I turned around and when I started to move towards the girls, they ran off.

I called the police and filed a report. To the MPD’s credit, I went outside again around 9:30, and there was a cop car parked right in front of where the incident occurred and another up the block plus two officers in my building’s lobby.

Just wanted to make sure people were aware this is a thing dog owners apparently need to worry about now. Has anyone else had problems with teens with tasers in NoMa?”
