We start today’s buzz with really sad news: This morning, between 9 and 10 am, a man got into an altercation inside a Metrobus. The assailant, whose name has not yet been released, wounded three people and killed a fourth one. The decedent’s name is Robert Cunningham and he was a WMATA worker at the station. Mr. Cunningham, who was a mechanic, and another WMATA worker, were able to stop the perpetrator (NBC Washington). This is the latest in a series of gun violence incidents over the past month, and while police presence has increased over the last few weeks, per ANC commissioner Matt LaFortune, an incident like this one is of an unpredictable nature. In today’s press conference, WMATA General Manager Randy Clarke stated that this is “An American gun violence issue.” We agree.

The Washington Examiner reports on the new bill introduced by Ward 6 councilmember Charles Allen, requiring the District to install a minimum of 7,500 electric vehicle chargers across the city. It’s a good time to be an electric car owner.

Philz Coffee is really gone, gone. (Eater) Will they be missed in DC? We assume that the immediate neighbors will feel the pain around Navy Yard, but as several readers chimed in, Lot 38 and Slipstream are there to fill the void. And who knows, maybe Yellow the Cafe will find their forever home in the former Philz space.
