Does anyone know about an aggravated assault that happened on the 1100-1200 block of 25th Street in the Oakwood neighborhood? Neighbors have been saying that shots were fired at someone. The person was hurt but hopefully, will be ok. Apparently, the police blocked off the street. Any news on this story? Thank you.
