It was a busy night last night. Our friends at the "Uptown Crime Blotter" were busy keeping up with the activity in the neighborhood. Several residents also emailed us to give us updates on the shootings near Leland and Dover.
A reader writes in:
"Eight shots fired last night at Dover and Leland. A white Bonneville 4 door car driving towards a blue 4 door sedan coming the other way - blue car containing 4 African American males. Shots fired from both cars. The blue car sped south down Dover with bullet holes throughout and turned east on Wilson. The other white car, also shooting, was a larger car that headed west towards Clark. Three of the 4 people in the blue car were hit and treated at Weiss. They drove themselves to Weiss and were followed by a police car who saw them at a high rate of speed down Wilson."
Another reader added:
"They are still searching for the weapon which should be on the 4600 block of Dover! Please check around your cars and in your yards - we certainly do not need another loose gun on the streets!"
