  • These shots woke me up last night. Glad no one was killed. Looks like we get the lovely blinding and noisy police floodlight treatment in the neighborhood tonight.

  • This actually happend on the 700 block of Jefferson Street. Saw a portion of it from my window about 100 ft away. The shooter was definitely was wearing a grey hoodie not sure about the other guy. Been living in the neighborhood a while and never witnessed something like this. Have heard gun shots before from a distance but nothing this close.. Hope they catch the fuckers.
