Police: Long-running dispute spurs 80-year-old man to fatally shoot his neighbor

Two neighbors had long disagreed about the property line between their homes in Virginia.
On Sunday, that disagreement turned deadly, when an 80-year-old man fatally shot his 65-year-old neighbor, authorities said. Louise Hubert Guy Prud’Homme, president and chief executive of a Northwest Washington development company, died in the driveway of his Spotsylvania County home, officials said.
Deputies arrested Larry Keith Johnston, who was charged with first-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, said Lt. C.A. Carey, a county sheriff’s office spokesman.
The shooting happened in Spotsylvania County along Young Lane, about 20 minutes outside Fredericksburg.

DC Water: Speed bump installations - V and Adams Streets, NW

Good Morning ANC 5E Commissioners,

DC Water is continuing its restoration efforts in the Bloomingdale community for the First Street Tunnel and Small Diameter Main Replacement Projects. Although there were no parking signs in place, last week we encountered some issues with parked cars on both Adams Street and V Street, which has delayed the replacement of the speed bumps along those roadways.

We were hoping you would assist us by getting the word out to residents and kindly asking them to follow the no parking signs posted for this Thursday through Saturday in the following locations:

  • V Street – between Flagler and 1st Street (133 V Street placement)
  • Adams Street – between 2nd and Flagler (163 Adams placement)
Thank you and we hope to see you at the community event on June 3rd.

another WaPo story: Gingrich spreads conspiracy theory about Seth Rich's homicide

Gingrich spreads conspiracy theory about slain DNC staffer

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, a stalwart supporter of President Trump, used a Sunday-morning appearance on “Fox and Friends” to spread the conspiracy theory that former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was killed last year to cover up the true story of how WikiLeaks obtained tens of thousands of hacked Democratic Party emails.
“We have this very strange story now of this young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee, who apparently was assassinated at 4 in the morning, having given WikiLeaks something like 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments,” Gingrich said.
“Nobody’s investigating that, and what does that tell you about what’s going on? Because it turns out, it wasn’t the Russians. It was this young guy who, I suspect, was disgusted by the corruption of the Democratic National Committee. He’s been killed, and apparently nothing serious has been done to investigative his murder. So I’d like to see how [Robert S.] Mueller [III] is going to define what his assignment is.”
