    It is pretty clear to everyone who lives close to this location that the apartment on the corner houses gang members.

    • Gee

      Who cares if there’s gang members they don’t bother u or do they !?

    • Natoma neighbor

      not the first time. These guys are screwing up the neighborhood, with no regard to any body at all. We have kids playing/skating on this street – and now have to worry about these dumb thugs and their stupid guns. These meatheads have attracted other thugs from the 24th St area to swap bullets. No respect.

        The other incident’s story was also not updated… Glad to see the post below that the person who was shot is OK now. Still, would like for some action to be taken on these two shootings at the same location.

    Hi..does anyone have an update? Is the shot guy okay? Was this gang related or a random shooting?

    • Hi, the police haven’t released an update on the condition of the victim or whether this was gang-related. We’ll update the story as soon as we get more information. Thanks! Helene
