Almost a quarter of the murders city-wide, in a 3-block span. http://t.co/yWaQP2NtMc http://t.co/RpStsoDwvA

Maybe it’s time to station police at every corner. The community should not allow this to keep happening. Until they stop supporting the activities that get people shot, maybe they should be under lock down.

I know it sounds harsh, but when is enough enough? It does not appear to ever be enough.

@3 and 4, Cadeho I don’t know you but you usually sound pretty reasonable to me on this blog. I rather like your idea of police at every corner but i doubt the police have the manpower (or woman power) to enact that. However, “the community should not allow this to happen” is something I agree with – but how does that end? How do you get the community to say, stop it? And tearing down Mosby Court won’t, IMHO, stop it, it would just move the same people (with their guns) to a different place.

Am I missing something? He was shot at 1 but they were called at 2? Non-life threatening injuries but died on the scene? Is this the same crime?

@5 – a couple hundred bucks on some good closed circuit cameras seems in order. Even as bad as our city budget is, it seems like that should be do-able.

According to channel 12:

Your right this was two(three) events actually… One shot around 1:15a (lived) and the other shot around 2:19 (and died).

Two separate shootings

But get this… Sunday night:

1:09 on coalter st a pizza man was robbed w a gun @ 1300 coalter st
1:15 man shot on redd (lived) @ 1900 redd st
2:19 man shot And died @ 1900 redd st

All in mosby within a block or so

Sounds like Richmond in the 90s to me…

Thanks for clarifying. Holy crap that’s out of control.

It’s especially sad when you remember that the purpose of that area is to provide a place for needy women with families to have a safe place to live. How many kids were within a block of all this shit?
