A Life in Detroit is Worth a Stick of Gum
78 year old in the wrong place at the wrong time
(note: the link I’m posting does not include all of the details. These are based on watching the live-shot on the local news)
A few days ago, an 11-year-old Detroit girl was playing at the playground, chewing gum. Someone from the neighborhood asked her for a stick of gum and she refused.
Words were exchanged, and their older siblings and parents were drawn into the argument.
That night, someone decided to ‘get back’ at the 17 year old brother of the girl.
After pumping 30+ rounds into the house, injuring 78-year-old Alice Poe, the shooters realized they were shooting at the WRONG HOUSE. (they could be heard yelling ‘that’s the wrong house, next door’)
Later in the evening the 17-year-old who was the original target was shot somewhere else. But of course, he’s not talking.
