    WTF – that is such a pretty block!! Right by that big church and the Library. Ugh!! What is happening in this town?!?!?

      It may be pretty, but that is right next to the Greenleaf “Gardens” housing project, a vibrant community well-known for its open-air drug market and semi-regular shootings.

    And I just heard more gun shots (7 or 8) in this same area

      What? That is just awful. So sad. What in the world is going on? What can be done?

      I am so sorry for the girl’s family. Heartbreaking.
