MONDAY’S IN THE GHETTO 06-23-14
It was busy in the ghetto again over the weekend – 5 separate violent incidents – 2 deaths…and 3 others injured. A guy named Otis Jackson was killed when he was stabbed in the neck in the 5900 block of Thodore around 11:15 Saturday Night after a domestic dispute. Fifteen minutes later…a 33 yr-old man was found sitting on the front steps of a house in the 2700 block of Thomas with a gunshot wound to the side of his head, two gunshot wounds to the chest and a gunshot wound to his armpit. Amazingly – he wasn’t dead. He’s listed in serious condition. The third incident happened around 1:50 Sunday morning. An 18 yr-old guy was traveling down Lenore K. Sullivan with his girlfriend when he heard a gunshot and felt pain in his shoulder. He was taken to the hospital. Minutes later, a guy down on the Landing, near 2nd Street was shot in the back. He’s in stable condition. And finally, around 2:30 Sunday morning, a woman was killed . She was shot three times in the head in the 3900 block of St. Louis Ave……In The Ghetto….
