That victim was taken to the hospital. There's no word on his name or condition.

Police have not made any arrests.

State police were called in to help with the investigation.

Earlier in the day, police responded to East South Street after neighbors reported seeing people in two vehicles shooting at each other.

Both incidents are under investigation.

    You people really need to cease this nonsensical talk about how firearms are to protect us from the government. This is not the 1700’s and the tyrannical British are not coming. Sorry to break the news those days are long behind us. It is time to move with the times and realize this is the 21st century. A lot of these ammendments are outdated and do not apply to modern times. Need to be rewritten.

    The bill of rights was written so as to protect us from government. Between criminals and unrestricted government, the unrestricted government is a far greater threat. The criminals can be dealt with by a government which has certain limits, provided we untie the hands of those who are attempting to fight crime.

    Firearms have no place in society. They all need to be confiscated and destroyed. They population has proven they do not deserve this privilege any longer

      It’s called the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of Privileges, ass hat. You have no place in society. Don’t you get tired of being told that you’re a seditious moron that needs medication and professional help?

    • Smh

      The majority of America agree with you. These comments come from small minded people. It makes them feel important commenting on these articles because this is Hicksville!!

      • Doesn't matter

        Prove it. The majority of America supposedly voted for a traitorous, lying psychopath too – but The Donald is our President. The right to own and bear arms shall not be infringed. So, you lose. I would rather spend time with someone from Hicksville that has common sense and knows how to take care of themselves rather than some city dwelling parasite that’s waiting for their next handout and complaining that their double mocha latte is 2 degrees too cold.
