There was a shooting incident a few nights ago near the 400 block of North Third St. I believe a woman with ties to 430 N. 3rd. suffered a gunshot wound and was transported to the hospital.

This address is well known to have gang/drug dealer types hanging out on the corner literally 24/7. Not even 20 degree weather keeps them from setting up shop to harrass pedestrians, conduct narcotic sales or just add to the general blight of the area.

If the gang bangers in front of this house all day and night intimidating everyone isn't enough to raise an eyebrow, all one has to do is look at the volume of trash and broken glass littering the property to realize immediate attention is needed to curb future violence and decay to the surrounding neigbhorhoods.

Apparently, the fact that a woman suffered a gunshot wound wasn't even enough to curtail the suspected illicit activity at this house. Yesterday, the young businessmen with their baggy gangsta clothes were busily aiding anyone looking to score whatever product the individuals were marketing.
