Police said a group of people attempted to rob another group of people near South Second Street and National Avenue early Monday morning. Investigators said one of the would-be victims produced a gun and shot one of the would-be robbers.
Lt. Mark Stanmeyer said the shooting victim was a 15-year-old boy that he called “a known gang member” who had a lengthy arrest record including armed robbery and auto theft.
It appears as if we are seeing more of these group attacks. They have no set pattern: they can go after individuals, couple or like in this case, a group.
If anything this is a great reminder for 1) Carrying all the time, 2) Be aware of your surroundings and the people in it as much as humanly possible and 3) There is a proven value on having “high-capacity” magazines.

A different attack that happened in Springfield, MO. The reason it did not end tragically comes at the end.
