UPDATE: Thanks to a reader for sharing a GoFundMe page for Fabian:

“On the early morning of October 1st on Q street in Washington DC Fabian was walking home from work and was approached by two young men. They held him up for money. Fabian refused and one of the men drew a gun and shot at him twice. One of the bullets entered his forearm it traveled up thru his arm and out his bicep shredding the muscles and damaging the nerves in his arm. A bystander immediately called 911 and he was quickly rushed to Howard University Hospital where he is receiving excellent care. He is so lucky to have cat like reflexes. If he had not raised his arm in defense the bullet would have entered his chest and likely killed him. We all know Fabian as our favorite RONIN Bartender and he needs our help. He does not have health insurance and will not be able to get back to work for the foreseeable future. While still receiving treatment at the hospital the bills are piling up. Please donate to help Fabian today!”
