There was a shooting this afternoon on the 1700 block of Lowry Ave. N. The victim and circumstances are unknown at this time. Mainstream media is reporting nothing since nonfatal shootings interest them little, even though nothing separates the fatal from the nonfatal except dumb luck and, perhaps, a smidgen of correctly applying marksmanship skills.
With a lack of information from other sources, this blog will publish what little it knows...
A witness reports there was a taped off area in an alley on the north side of the 1700 block of Lowry Avenue North, and another taped off area on the south side of Lowry. Several young black men were detained at the curb. A bystander was asked what had happened, and stated somebody "got shot in the thigh, and s***."
The yards of several houses were included in the taped off areas.
