    We get more information than this from social media. It's sad times that anyone can get a website and call what they post "News" or "journalism"

      What you know about? I don't think they got the man's name that's why ME was called in.

    I grew up and lived on this street for over 25 years right next door to the address they said. Over the years that street just kept getting worse and worse. Thank God I'm out of there! Wouldn't want my daughters growing up in a neighborhood where they have to fear for their life walking out their house. I blame the night club/restaurant on 21st Ave where you have an 18 year old+ crowd on Wednesday and Thursday partying, drinking, and acting wild. We would always be sleeping and wake up from hearing a crowd of people fighting, arguing, and shootings.
