Gang Shooting At Wilson and Magnolia
It apparently happened in the strip mall at the corner of Wilson and Magnolia. Police, fire, and ambulances were on the scene quickly.
Several readers say the shots came from a red minivan with a handicapped sticker in the windshield that sped away on Malden toward Lawrence.
A witness says: "One of the gangbangers who hangs out at Wilson/Magnolia and constantly feeds drugs to the homeless was just shot in the intersection of Wilson/Magnolia. There were 6 or so shots which I heard. After I went onto my front terrace, a dude screamed into his cell phone 'Get the f*** down here --- they shot (don't know his name).' Police pulled up, but the victim was walking with the help from a friend. Looks like they got him in the stomach or maybe an arm/leg. I saw all of the guys who helped him and also feed drugs to the homeless people grinding at the corner of Clifton and Wilson about 5:45. They were all wearing red which I think means Pstone in this neighborhood. Wilson and Magnolia is taped off."
If you saw anything that might help the police, call 911 and report it.
There is a CAPS meeting for this beat happening right now (between 7pm and 8pm) at Truman College. If you're upset about this, go and talk to the cops and neighbors about what happened.
