Two more shootings


A new shooting, and a previously unreported one.

Two more  Plainfield
shootings have come to light. I got word Friday evening about 6:30 PM that a shooting had taken place minutes earlier on Evona Avenue.

I was told the man who had been shot was medevaced, and then heard that he may have died before he could be airlifted. The shooting was reported in a brief in both the Courier and the Ledger -- see today's CLIPS.

The second shooting evidently took place last Sunday at West 4th and New Street and was -- far as I know -- previously unreported. A man was wounded in that incident and an arrest of a 20-year-old East 9th Street resident was made on attempted murder charges Wednesday night. This is also reported in both the Courier and the Ledger and the links are on today's CLIPS.

Dan I have been a member of Sholom for impteen decades. To the best of my knowledge it was never located om West 8th St. But then again in their rush to change thinngs in Plainfield perhaps the New Dems have redrawn rhw city map.
