Very interesting post in the City Paper from Rend Smith about the OTHER guy, the same night Ali Ahmed Mohammed broke a window of DC9’s and died, who did the same thing – but survived. 21-year-old Georgio Tuccio, according to his lawyer, punched through a window after DC9 employees beat him up.  They stay they have witnesses to back up this claim. Can’t tell if this is a case of leveraging someone else’s pain to clear oneself of a crime, or if two of these incidents really happened in one night.

In related news, the Medical Examiner has determined Mohammed’s cause of death and will be releasing the information either today or Monday. Stay tuned, or follow me on Twitter for up to the minute news.

And, fun times, DC9 should be officially reopening tonight.

Some news regarding the violence in Columbia Heights:

I’m glad that MPD seems to be doing such a good job making timely arrests on these murders. However, I’m sure many share the sentiment that I wish there were no murders to solve.
