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.
