The killing of a three-year-old girl by a stray bullet in Southeast D.C. rocked the community. Officials just doubled the reward, now at $50,000, for information that leads to an arrest. (Washington Post)

✈️ Mayor Bowser took an expensive, under-the-radar trip to the Masters golf tournament in Georgia, flying private as a guest of Edens CEO Jodie McLean — the deep-pocketed developer behind Union Market. Questions remain over who paid for the trip. (Washington City Paper)
