“Gang graffiti?”

“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, our neighbors woke up to this graffiti on the property. Apparently it’s the 18th Street gang (according to another neighbor). We live in upper Petworth and wonder if anyone has seen anything similar? There is also graffiti from MS-13 at the other end of our alley. I should mention that we have contacted Brandon Todd and the neighbors have filed a police report.”
