It was a lovely evening that behaved more like a mid-summer night after a 95 degree afternoon. A total of 11 people were shot resulting in three (3) dead. May is averaging nearly five (5) people shot and wounded or killed per day.
In one of the incidents last night, one of those evil “assault weapons” made a rare appearance:
“Police found three guns near a garbage can in an alley near the crime scene: two described by police as Tec-9 or similar-styled handguns and one AK-47-styled gun with wood components.
Residents nearby described the gunfire as rapid and loud. At least two people approached the crowd and fired shots, tried to flee in a van but couldn’t, left the van in an alley and ran south on Kostner, police said.”
It’s a good thing that both types of guns are illegal within the city limits or else someone may have gotten hurt.
