“Dear PoPville,

Saw what looked like 20 to 30 students fighting from my window. This happened around 3:45pm, yesterday (3/19) afternoon. Considering the proximity, I assume these are Dunbar HS students. This is the second fight I’ve seen here between HS students in as many weeks.

Luckily, the cops showed up almost immediately. At the peak, 4 DCPD cars were pulled up to handle the situation. Saw about 4 students hauled away in handcuffs.”
