“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!”
