An Update from the UPS Driver Shot by a Stray Bullet Yesterday in Columbia Heights: “I’m in good spirits.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’m the UPS driver who got hit with the stray on 14th. I was about to go in to a building and a bullet came from behind and hit me in the hamstring. Went in and out and ended up in the truck somewhere. I flagged down a cop and he put a tourniquet on to stop the bleeding.

Cops were looking for the slug so the truck became part of the crime scene. My coworker was in the area and provided some help as well. A lot of concern from the community but I’m going to make a full recovery hopefully. I would appreciate if you could let people know that I’m in good spirits. Thanks.”

14th Street, NW between Girard and Fairmont
