Blood stains and bloody bandages could still be seen on the sidewalk bordering Peynier Street long after police had cordoned off the area and the first responders whisked the injured away by ambulance.

Pedestrians and small business owners along the busy street spoke of hearing multiple shots at a time when the area is flooded with school children making their way onto buses for home.

  1. the government needs to do this considering the broke state of the nation

    * declare a gun amnesty and allow people to anonymously report those who they know have weapons

    *this would also include the pardon of those who turn their guns in willingly

    *non questioning of those who bring a gun which does not belong to them

    *ANYONE TURNING IN GUNS WILL BE REWARDED $1000

    JUST IMAGINE THE NUMBER OF BROKE PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHERE A GUN IS, WHAT THEY GOING TO DO
    EVEN ME
    I WOULD WANT THAT 1000 DOLLARS

    i think it would be a great investment towards the eradication of crime. please reach out to the necessary department with this info

  2. D.D. not a bad idea, but hear me; a better idea – HANG THE BASTARDS.
    sure to put an end to the madness.
