“Dear PoPville,

My close friends and several family members were all walking from my apt on H ST NE, north towards Union Market, to cap off a great weekend of celebrating my doctoral graduation. Sadly, as we were about to cross Florida Ave, these 2 or 3 teens with a gun robbed two in my large group of their belongings. This is ridiculous to say the least that these teens did it in broad daylight, in front of children and several homeowners just enjoying their front lawn. 1:00 PM on a sunny Sunday. Read More

Kristin sends this heartbreaking note: “The parents of the Capitol Hill daycare where Arianna’s mom works have set up a GoFundMe to help with funeral and ongoing expenses after her death on Sunday. Can you share?”

The GoFundMe says:

“We are some of the families at Board of Child Care – Early Childhood Education Center (“BCC”) in Capitol Hill who were devastated to learn that our beloved teacher and the mother of four, Ms. Antionette, and her family were the victims of senseless gun violence on Mother’s Day 2023.

Ms. Antionette and her family were driving home on Sunday night when they heard the sound of gunshots. Ms. Antionette would soon realize that her 10-year-old daughter, Arianna Davis, was struck by the gunfire. Arianna was hospitalized that evening.

On a day that should have been joyful and filled with loving memories, Ms. Antionette and her family were forced to endure this nightmare. And now, it is with a heavy heart that we must share that on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, Arianna succumbed to her injuries. She leaves behind a brokenhearted family and community that will miss her dearly. Read More
