Around 11:15am Nick reported:

“Sounded like more shots fired over in this area in the past 30 mins. Maybe closer to 8th and Rhode Island.”

I asked if other had heard them and Steve replied:

“I did while driving N on RI – called 911 to report. Saw one individual raise a gun and fire down 8th towards individual near RI intersection. Heard 4 shots fired before gunman fled into apartment complex.
Was at red light of that intersection, so looking up 7th NW & gunman pop from behind fence of complex, fire 4 shots (gun up & aimed) towards intersection/RI & possibly 5th shot before dashing off. Couldn’t see who they were firing at, but saw individual near car at intersection”

“This is a bittersweet email to write. After much thought, I’ve decided to close Violet. Our last day open will be October 20th and all sales will be final as of September 30th.

There are many reasons I’ve made this decision. Some personal. Some related to the business environment that retail, in particular small retail, will face over the next few years. (more…)
