Double shooting Tuesday evening

Last night's double shooting was in Elmwood Gardens.

A Plainfield Today reader reported hearing on the police scanner last evening of a double shooting in the area of 544 West Second Street just before 10:00 PM, said on the scanner to be a man and a woman.

I was later told that the incident involved two women, both shot in the face, and both of whom refused medical treatment.

This is the same Elmwood Gardens neighborhood which has figured prominently in both the street drug trafficking and the gang feud that has gripped Plainfield over the past several months.

Elmwood Gardens is also the group of buildings the Housing Authority of Plainfield proposes to raze and replace with lower density housing.
