  • celi01- are you implying that was only active when he was 14. Must have done something to still be targeted by rivals.

  • The shooter has not been caught and cannot even be identified bc it happened so fast. If it was rivals wouldn't they have wanted to make that known?
    I don't know everything or have answers but I do know that if we all United and work towards getting these young kids off the streets we can lessen the amount of people joining gangs. Who knows maybe in another 15 years have them off the streets completely. When you know better, you do better!
