No one was hurt – physically – by the gunman at Comet Ping Pong Sunday afternoon.
I want to congratulate the police on a very effective show of force, sealing the area, & an arrest apparently without injuries. https://t.co/rookW7DzxU

The emotional toll is harder to measure, but it’s severe. As a balm, we thought we’d share some of outpouring of support online for Comet, Terasol, Little Red Fox and all the other businesses on the 5000 block of Connecticut Avenue.
Everybody who lives in DC should eat a meal at Comet Ping Pong this week. This kind of thing just can't win. https://t.co/96DOv0cWko

Comet is an amazing place, and the owners, patrons and neighborhood did nothing to deserve this. https://t.co/M16AYEjnMw

Needless to say, we agree.
