I'll be honest, this story freaked me out. I'm about to move into a house in Petworth from Mt. Pleasant, and I'm not naive about crime in the neighborhood, but I know enough to know that the more violent stuff in MtP/Columbia Heights/Petworth is almost always drug/gang related and almost never targeted at citizens. Or at least at a time when I'm usually at home asleep (2-3-4 in the morning)

The shooting really shocked me and the age and coldness of the perp was really alarming.

The funny thing is that I always feel more safe late at night on my bike vs. walking, just because it's harder to follow me and if someone is on a dark corner waiting for someone to hold up, if on a bike, you're usually come and gone before they even realize that you're there.

Scary stuff.
