King via GoFundMe
On April 30, King, who is three years old, was shot three times in a drive-by shooting at 18 Place NE. King is in a local PK3 class. We didn’t even hear about it until his teachers sent a note home last week.
King is expected to recover, but is going to be in the hospital for a long time and has a tough road ahead of him. We’re devastated for him and his family and also really shocked that this hasn’t gotten more media coverage.
Here is the story from the Washington Post.
They’ve got a few of the details wrong (he is 3, not 4, and was shot three times not once). But other that the original report of the shooting, this is the only coverage I’ve been able to find anywhere.
We’ve set up a GoFundMe to support King’s recovery, with the permission of his family. 100% of the money will go to his mother on his behalf.”

Thanks to Stephanie for sending. CARNE y ARENA’s website says:
“Academy Award®-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s conceptual virtual reality installation CARNE y ARENA (Virtually present, Physically invisible) explores the human condition of immigrants and refugees. Based on true accounts from Central American and Mexican refugees, CARNE y ARENA blurs and binds together the superficial lines between subject and bystander, allowing individuals to walk in a vast space and live a fragment of a refugee’s personal journey. Awarded a special Oscar last year, CARNE y ARENA is a six-and-a-half- minute solo experience that employs state-of-the-art technology to create a multi-narrative space with human characters. The project reunites frequent collaborators Iñárritu and three-time Academy Award®-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, alongside producer Mary Parent and ILMxLAB. (more…)
