“Dear PoPville,

It was a quiet morning around Sherman Circle when I decided to take my dogs for a walk. Just as I open the door the Ring doorbell activated itself and caught on video this crazy amount of gunshots. So scary and so dangerous!! There is a significant amount of cops at 9th and Crittenden… again!! Already a busy summer around that area. Just wondering when is going to stop!!”
