Completely blanked on posting this and I would never forgive myself if I totally blanked on it – so here we are from 4:50pm today. Thanks to Pat for sending: “Can’t hear what he’s saying but he’s been here for a couple hours.”
“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

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.”

“Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld today accepted a recommendation of the transit authority’s Pandemic Task Force that face coverings or masks be required when traveling on Metro effective Monday, May 18. The move strengthens Metro’s position on the matter, which has “strongly recommended” the use of face coverings since early April, in accordance with CDC guidance. 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.

A developer purchased and intends to tear down a church next to our small condo building. He intends to build a small condo building. What kinds of things should we do to protect ourselves during the demolition and construction? What are things to watch out for? We’ve read the horror stories about issues with the foundation or work stalling halfway through a project and want to do as much as we can to be pro-active about mitigating any potential impact to our building with all the work going on next door.”
Thanks to all for messaging us.
