“Dear PoPville,

a bloomingdale business owner at Jam Doung, a woman, was shot twice last wednesday while closing up shop. hardly anyone is talking about it outside our listserv, but she tried to fight off her assailant and neighbors on the street were pretty unimpressed by mpd’s ensuing search for the two men. i hope people will try to support Jam Doung since they had to close for a few days.”

From MPD:
