East Side Sees Another Drive-By Shooting


The situation is still code red over on the east side, where one violent episode only seems to be giving way to the next. After a 48 hour period that saw three separate shootings — leaving 8 people wounded – over the weekend, we're getting word of another drive-by. Fortunately, as with the gunplay that kicked off the week, no one was killed.

The latest incident happened early this morning on East 71st near Shaffer, according to 19ActionNews, about 20 blocks east from the China House shooting. At 12:50 a.m. this morning, two people were hit by fire coming from either a silver PT Cruiser or a Chevy. Police are hunting down the vehicle. One individual was treated on the scene; the other was taken to the hospital.
