Just a week ago gunshots were fired on Bosworth. Tonight a little after 5:30 PM shots rang out again. I came around the corner by Sandy's, heard the pop pop noise and saw people scattering. One woman carrying a small child ran across Howard into the bakery. I looked down Bosworth and noticed two people hitting the ground for cover. About all I could do was hang out on Howard and dial 911.
When it got quiet I went around the corner again and asked a woman and man standing in the Broadmoor doorway what they saw. The woman pointed to two buildings and said a 'kid pulled out a gun and started shooting'. She said the shooter and others ran into the gangway.
I checked out the building that was the source of the problem last week and the gate was propped open with a newspaper. I emailed the owner, phoned the manager and the alderman. So if any neighbors saw anything you may want to email your alderman so he can fix the problem. I can't.
The woman who had rushed past me with her child denied running, denied knowing anything, hearing anything or seeing anything. It's amazes me how people can yell and scream about safety then become part of the problem with their inability to do the simplest action - speaking when it's really necessary.
As one tenant in the building said "It's cold tonight, what's it going to be like when it's hot?"
