Amazing. On November 9th we learned that:

“an armed robbery occurred in the 1600 block of Franklin Street, NE at approximately 7pm on the evening of November 9th. The victim of the robbery was exiting his vehicle when he was approached by a man with a gun who took several items of value from the victim. After obtaining the items the suspect attempted to run to an awaiting vehicle, but the victim’s dog, who was in the car at the time of the robbery, jumped from the vehicle and attacked the robber. A second suspect waiting in the car fired a single shot, striking the dog.”

At that time all we knew as that the owner took the dog to an animal hospital for treatment of its injuries. I am happy to report that MPD has now let me know that “the dog is alive. He lost his eye but is now back with his owner.” It’s not much but I know many, myself included, were eager to learn how the hero dog was doing. That s/he is alive and back home is great news. Thanks to all for messaging me their concerns for the pup.

“Anyone with information related to this crime is encouraged to call MPD at 202-727-9099, or text the information to 5-0-4-1-1.”

MPD tells me the owner took the dog to an animal hospital for treatment of its injuries. It’s unclear of the status right now but will update when/if more becomes known.

From OAG:

“Attorney General Karl A. Racine today announced a lawsuit against a group of auto repair and sales businesses located in Ward 5 for repeatedly spilling toxic oil onto neighborhood sidewalks and streets, the culmination of a pattern of environmental violations spanning a decade. The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) filed suit against the owners and occupants of a property at 2201 Channing St., NE for discharging used oil into public spaces, failing to take required steps to prevent oil spills and leaks, improperly storing hazardous waste, and failing to pay previously-ordered penalties. This is the first environmental enforcement action OAG has brought against local businesses using its authority as an independent agency. In this suit, OAG is seeking monetary and injunctive relief, and penalties to the District. (more…)
