    Is this Brianne Nadeau’s ward?

      Yep, it’s Ward 1.

        Im not expecting any comment from her on this or any other crime stats in the Ward or City. 1pm is terrifying. There a lot of day cares, and nannies that take kids on walks through the neighborhood in the middle of the day.

    This is terrifying, but not surprising. We’ve noticed a lot of activity in the alleys around here. Lots of cars with Maryland tags with folks hanging out dealing and using…late night/early morning arguments on the street. One can only assume it will get better once Park Morton gets redeveloped at Bruce Monroe park. (sigh)

      One can only notice that the crime uptick is recent, and Park Morton has been around for many, many years.

      Are you calling the police?

    This is truly terrifying, especially for someone who lives in Park View with children. Is there any place to get updates or more details on crimes like this as the case moves forward? While any violent crime is unnecessary and scary it matters to me if the crime is random or if it’s domestic or drug related. I’m not downplaying the danger of a shooting in any of those situations but as a resident there is a big difference between a targeted crime and a random unprovoked crime. My assumption is usually that it isn’t random unless it says so but it would be nice to confirm or have more details about the crime during or after an investigation.

    Does one call 911 for illegally parked cars in alleys? Seriously, there are 2 behind my house doing unsavory things at all hours. I live in that neighborhood, and I am worried about the number of children that are being affected by all the BS going on.
    I also go to Bruce Monroe a lot, and I have yet to see any problems there. It’s open and encourages play and learning. It’s the darn alleys, and you can’t build high rises and shopping complexes in those.

      Absolutely call them.
