“On January 1, 2019, our friend was shot in the head as an innocent bystander in NW DC. He is critically injured and will need surgery, rehabilitation time, and lots of medical care.
The last thing he, his girlfriend, his family, or his dog need to worry about is money. So if you’re able, please chip in what you can and share with your networks so we can help out. Thank you.”
Did you see this story of an innocent bystander getting shot in the head near Jackie Lee’s?”
NBC Washington reported:
“It appears that the victim in this case may have been an unintended target who was visiting one of the local establishments here,” police chief Peter Newsham said.”
“On Tuesday, January 1, 2019, around 12:20pm, Fourth District units responded to the 100 block of Kennedy ST NW for a sounds of gun shots. Upon their arrival they observed a victim who had been shot.

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.
