Six shot at block party

July 5, 2007


— Up to six people were shot Wednesday night after a fight broke out at a neighborhood July 4th block party.

Officers responded to calls from the area at 8:18 p.m. and received calls of additional shooting victims showing up at local hospitals. They said two victims were treated and released while two others were seriously injured, including one described as having "potentially life threatening" wounds.

Witnesses told police about 200 people were at the block party when a verbal confrontation got physical and then gunshots were fired.

Police said they don't know how many people fired shots and few witnesses stuck around to give additional details.

"There is several generations of young Americans that have little respect for anyone, just look at how the Dems behave, and there disrespect of our country and its president." Spywell,
There were no ages released of the victims, so unless you have inside knowledge of what happened, stop speculating. Also, our president and the current state of this country deserve no respect. Our president has done nothing to earn our respect or trust. Bush has only abused his rights and privileges as president, and proven to be as dangerous an enemy to the American people as Al Qaeda.
On a different note, I hope for speedy recovery for all the victims of this crime as they were celebrating our Country's birthday.

C'mon, this was just an innocent but slightly drunken misunderstanding.

"Shoot six at a party!" "Six shots at a party!"

Who can blame the guy? A little tequila, a ready firearm, what was he supposed to think?
