Fights, shooting, hit&run after party at Masonic Lodge

From a reputable source:

There was a shit show at the Masonic Lodge on 25th and Leigh last night/early Sunday morning…around 2:30 a.m. The worst mess of a party so far in that space. And believe me, there have been a lot over the 10 years I’ve been here. (Including last summer’s inaugural Teen Polo Cake Fight Party.)

This one started as an argument on the sidewalk, lots of yelling between two dudes, then pushing, punches thrown, others jump in. Two dudes in a white car pull up and jump out, immediately throwing punches. Then some dumb ass SHOOTS INTO THE CROWD. One shot.

The guy who was shot stumbled away with two people, and got into a black SUV. There were people running toward them in the street. The SUV pulled away erratically, RUNNING OVER/HITTING A WOMAN. I couldn’t quite tell, which I’m glad for.

I called 911 during the scuffle/pre-shooting and they came pretty damn quick. Of course, the hit-and-run SUV got away. I couldn’t see much at all. No plates, everyone wearing hats/big pants and jackets. Ugh.

I think it’s time for the police to have a long, hard conversation with the Masons. The actual Masons are great. It’s the people they rent the space to who ruin it. I’m sure other neighbors have some stories to share.

I used to share the alley behind that building. I would sit on my patio and laugh at the mayhem after the Mason’s parties. Usually some social uproar to some level but on occasion, I ran inside, locked my doors and turned off the lights.

@chpn We are looking at a person of interest in regards to the Hit/Run. We don’t have anyone that has reported being shot. #More2Follow

I live right across from this places, my window looks right into the street where all this happened and I saw everything from the beginning. It all happened so fast before the cops showed up. But there were men who got out fast that i wish i could have seen their faces… I do think they need to do something because this isn’t the first time something has gone wrong and its scary knowing a gun went off just a few feet away and that it could have even come in my house.

#6, I watched the Spike Lee video on gentrification (changes) to his childhood neighborhood in NYC. (It’s worth watching so I posted the link below). I agree with him that if people are moving into a new community, they need to have some respect for the history of a place and everyone needs to make space for different cultures. But he’s not talking about people getting into fights and firing shots. He’s arguing that his father should be able to make jazz music without getting the cops called on him. That’s a big difference. http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2014/02/27/ac-intv-cooper-spike-lee-on-gentrification-rant.cnn.html

Israel, the problem isn’t with the Masons, it’s with the people to whom the Masons are renting out their space for parties. Nobody should have to live in fear of being shot, no matter where you live. If the Masons do a better job of vetting the groups that rent their space the people who feel they must arm themselves to attend parties will have to find another place to go. People who carry weapons to parties aren’t wanted by anyone in any neighborhood. Not in the projects, not in the suburbs, not in the clubs in the bottom. No… Read more »

Big Jacob, I think you are missing the point. No one is upset about the Masons, only the parties that they have been renting the hall to. No matter how long an establishment has been around, if it is threat to the safety and security of the community, the neighbors have a right to complain. And, if it is deemed a public nuisance, it can be closed down. There is no excuse for the type of behavior described by this post.

To the giant all caps / misspelled hunk of whatever I just read by Monique

Two things
1. Learn to formulate a readable paragraph
2. Stop being a racist

That was not the point anyone was trying to make.

Monique: I think you were trying to say that people scream and fight on your street and that they are white and it isn’t fair that no one does anything about it, but that the media does report on incidents like this one. But the story makes no mention of anyone’s race. Have you, or has anyone else, tried calling the police about the people in your neighborhood/near your house? If not, then you really need to get off your high horse. No one cares because YOU aren’t doing anything to make them care. As for “this is our hood”… Read more »

I personally don’t want to get shot. Where do I get a sign to put in my front yard (but off of City property) that says, “I don’t support shooting other people.”

BIG JACOB-

” ‘IF’ a bullet was meant to go in any one house it will happen” . Why or why would a bullet be meant to go anywhere? Why have a gun period? Why shoot a gun where there are innocent people? Why should anyone need to move because they can’t live safely in their own home?

the usual intolerance of various backgrounds and forms of communication courtesy of CHPN comments!

If you “livetheretoo” are you saying that bullets flying and the comments on this subject are intolerant?

I don’t understand why a certain faction of human society thinks it is acceptable behaviour to shoot, stab, run over, beat up, throw chemicals and perform other acts of violence against each other.

You may be comfortable and happy living in such an environment. You may think this is acceptable behavior for various backgrounds. As for me, I am highly intolerent of such behavior and see NOTHING WRONG with any of the comments courtesy of CHPN.
