Man Shot In Clarendon Park Wednesday Afternoon
Due to an increased police presence in the area stemming from the murder in the same area nine days ago, cops were on the scene immediately, and a helicopter was dispatched shortly afterward to try to find the shooters. We don't know if they were apprehended.
We are told that the funeral of Troy Phelon, who was killed on March 9, was held Wednesday, and it's possible that the shooting was in retaliation for his murder.
At the Beat 1914 CAPS meeting a week ago, the police officers said that Mr. Phelon was "associated" with a gang, but was not a gang member. They said his death was the result of taunting between rival gangs on YouTube and other social media.
