UU Note: Gangs in Uptown are notoriously quick to retaliate after a shooting. If you see anything that looks like it's about to be trouble, call 9-1-1. There will be extra police out due to the violence. Call 9-1-1 if you see gang loitering or anything that looks like it has the potential to develop into a violent situation.
