Thanks to Stuart for sending:

“Got a call today from an order I placed on Sunday with Jos A Bank in Union Station. As their parent company announced bankruptcy and store closing plan the other day, they gave me a call to tell me my order has been moved to another store, and they are shortly closing their Union Station location. Sad to see the large number of store closures within Union Station.”

From MPD:

“On Friday May 29, 2020, at approximately 2130 hours, Fourth District units responded to the 3700 block of Georgia AVE NW, in reference to a call for Sounds of Gunshots. While canvassing the area, they located 1 adult victim, with injuries to the head. The victim was conscious and breathing, suffering from non-life threatening injuries, and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. The only lookout we have at this time, is for several juvenile males.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call MPD on 202-727-9099 or send a text to 50411.”

One reader reported: “Woman in car was shot through windscreen in face (by crossfire?) and drove around the corner to that park to call for help (my friend called 911 for them). Miraculously conscious. She witnessed multiple shooters” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I just wanted to give a heads up to runners in northeast (specifically between 2nd-3rd and K-F) of a man that is verbally harassing/chasing runners. I witnessed a runner being harassed by this man Monday near Ebenezers coffee where he screamed at the man and jolted at him. I myself was harassed by him today near Indigo with him using profane language, etc. My boyfriend found him after I came home terrified and he called the police. The police came and reported that other people had called in this individual today as well but they can’t arrest because no crime was officially committed.”

While the overwhelming majority of riders already comply voluntarily, the requirement is viewed as a necessary step as Metro plans for an eventual recovery with more riders using the system.
