A Nice Neighborhood

My neighborhood by all accounts is a fairly quiet and safe one. I generally feel safe, even late at night when I stand in front of my building to smoke a cigarette.

On Saturday evening there was a shooting in my hood though. A block away from where I live. Across the street from my aunt's building.

Originally witnesses, including people I know, thought the police shot the young man in the alley. You know I was ready to start something.
Regardless it's still sad and just goes to show that these sorts of things can happen anytime, any place, even in nice neighborhoods.
