    One of the young men is my cousin which is the one in critical condition. He is NOT a gang member. Never have been. All he do is play basketball and is such a sweetheart. You all need to get your sources together!

    I cant speak for the other 2 but the man that is in critical condition is NOT a gang member.. Your sources are completely wrong.. All black men are not gang members !

    I really think the news media or whomever need to get their facts straight before they put out story of lies….Gang related how dare you, just because there were three black males they have to be in a gang….People need to wake racism never left. My grandson was not in a gang, and no one ever ask questions or interview my family.

    My daughter just told me she went to school with the young man that was in critical condition. She stated the same thing he was never in a gang, all he ever did was play ball and was a very smart young man. The media really needs to get their facts straight before they negatively portray our young black men.
