Washington, DC

14th and Rhode Island Ave, NW

I’ve gotten many messages about a big police response in Logan Circle this afternoon. I have not gotten confirmation from MPD yet but readers on the scene have heard this was a stabbing and:

“there was a lot of blood”

“They are hosing blood off of the sidewalk rn”

Update from MPD:

“MPD is investigating a stabbing that occurred at approx. 11:45 am this morning, in the 1300 block of 14th St, NW. The victim was transported to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries. This case remains under active investigation.”


“Dear PoPville,

My neighbor’s dog was stolen from her yard Saturday at 4th and L St. NE. We are desperate trying to get the word out. All of our neighbors are coming together, doing whatever we can to get this puppy home. This has been reported it to the police and animal control. If anyone else has camera footage or information that may be helpful, please contact Kelly. Pictures of Lady, female pitbull, brown with white markings, un-spayed, not microchipped (above.)
