  • I live near this but didn’t hear a thing surprisingly. Sad news though. Delafield crossing 5th and 4th is full of families and an unbelievable number of little kids… a fantastic neighborhood feel where everyone knows everyone. This shooting was also not too far from Barnard Elementary. I hope no one was hurt, and good luck to the cops on closing this out, it’s always a little sketchy down by 3rd.

  • Can’t wait to see this crime go unsolved. How many incidents have there been in the area lately? Do any of them ever get solved? What are the cops and our elected officials doing to combat this problem? My Lord.

  • I’ve lived in this area for 7 years. When I first moved in, an elderly neighbor warned me not to go out at night! It’s frustrating that in this time (and Lord only knows how much longer ) these same incidents occur.

  • Thank God we live in a city where innocent people can’t shoot back. Makes perfect sense. Maybe the victims here should have been “more aware” of the their surroundings.

  • i live a half a block away and i heard nothing. scary that this is going on so close to my place. hope they catch the person though unlikely.

  • Without a height, weight or clothing description, that look out is as useless as saying “the suspect was wearing shoes”.

  • I think it’s pretty clear that this mayor is never going to be a tough on crime mayor. We just have to wait for his term to come to an end and hope for better canidates going forward.
