I just read this morning that two more people were shot in the Pike/Pine corridor, this time on 1st Ave. At least fifteen shots were fired, according to police and (at least) two people were hit. According to an Article in the PI, the police gang unit was on the scene not surprisingly.
On a brighter note, the PI also reported on an increased police presence around 2nd/3rd & Pine/Pike, at least in the afternoons. In the mornings, it's still a zoo. One thing at a time, I guess.
