    Crap. I hate to see the shootings in Brightwood shift north from GA and Jefferson. This one was a little too close to home….

    Retaliation for the Eric Garrett shooting a couple of days ago? Right next to an elementary school and across from a high school. I hate this housing project.

    I am not sure why this shooting received less media attention than the Sep. 12 shooting. This is the second shooting — in the exact same location — in less than 2 weeks. I live up Clifton St and heard both. I could hear people screaming this last time. It’s just awful. The city has just put up a CCTV camera on that corner.

    • Probably because it wasn’t a homicide but awful just the same. Hope the camera helps deter!
