A man was shot on the corner of 24th and Shotwell tonight, 1/11/14, around 5:30 PM. Witnesses say there were two groups of men on opposite corners of 24th yelling at each other. Shots were fired and the injured man was seen running down Shotwell, toward 25th, until he collapsed. Over the last few years, there has been a lot if suspected gang-related activity on this street corner. Shots fired in the past resulted in increased police action in the general area, but no consistent attention to this corner. I would like to know of this incident will lead to a concentrated effort to reduce loitering in this area, the corner of 24th and Shotwell specifically.
We’ve changed our comments policy. Why? Anonymity breeds boorishness.
At Mission Local, we know a lot of our readers personally and whether we agree with you or not on this or that issue, we have invariably found you to be decent, well-meaning, people. The kind of readers we like to have for neighbors. We know the thoughts and opinions of the majority of our readers are not accurately reflected in the sampling we see in our comments.
We don’t know why people have a difficult time commenting in an open and respectful way on the internet, but we do feel the anonymity we have afforded only contributes to the problem. Moreover, it does nothing for building community, forging bridges.
Therefore and forthwith: You can sign in through Facebook to comment or you can register on our site, but you must use your full name. All other comments will be zapped. If you use your full name and still insult or defame another reader, the author or anyone else, we’ll zap those too. We hope this encourages readers who have felt unwelcome in our comments section to contribute their insights.
