"Shooting Last Night at Wilson/Magnolia. Last night, at around 6:30 p.m., a man was shot in the leg by a shooter driving by. The victim is a well-known gang member that has committed many gang-related crimes.And someone who was at the CAPS meeting put in the comments to a post on the shooting:
After this incident, I was at the CAPS meeting for this beat at Truman College to create solutions around these persistent gang issues. I am also working with the mayor's office and building managers to force the few people that are creating most of the violent crimes in our ward out of their homes.
As always, please report any suspicious activity (including suspected drug sales) to 9-1-1 and please attend your CAPS meeting so that the police can continue to target areas where suspicious activity is taking place."
"The Police also mentioned that they were able to get all of Uptown labeled as a gang conflict zone and are able to do more widespread gang loitering dispersals than they ever have been."
