Shooting Wounds 2 At Anti-Gang Event In Wilmington

WILMINGTON (CBS) — Authorities say gang members opened fire, wounding two people, at an anti-gang program at Wilmington Recreation Center early Thursday morning.

About 30-people were walking away from the Summer Night Lights program at 325 Neptune Avenue just after midnight when a man in a dark car opened fire on the recreation center.

A 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl were wounded and taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, police said. Their conditions were not immediately reported.

The Summer Night Lights program was designed to reduce violence during the summer by keeping public parks open for gang-free activity, free food and programs.

Thursday’s shooting is the second at a Summer Night Lights event in as many weeks. A gang member was shot last Thursday by rival gang members in South Los Angeles during a Summer Night Lights event at Van Ness Park, Los Angeles police Sgt. Angela McGee said.

    Close the god damn borders and kick out all illegals now. This is exactly what happens in Mexico. The cartels are her in Los Angeles and they are doing what they do in Mexico. Politicians will do anything to stay in office so they can rob, cheat and steal and live a good life.

    Democrats let this happen because the illeglas vote for them.

      Illegal immigrants can’t vote, Timmy.

      1. Todd says:

        I think you mean illegal immigrants aren’t SUPPOSED to vote. I am confident that there is a fair amount of voter fraud when elections roll around.

        Their not immigrants, their ILLEGAL ALIENS. They broke the law by leaving their third world toilet bottom feeding country.

    2. Stryker 21 says:

      Shoot the gang bangers on site, ship them to their toilet country and be done. There mad because people are tired of the gang bangers destroying their city. Wilmington is a toilet anyways. $pic’s and mudflaps mostly reside there.

    James can you please Jim know that it’s not always the mexican people?

    it has nothing to do with illegals. do u not realize how many americans, wether hispanic, black, asian or white are involved in these gangs? do u not realize that these amaericans also run their own cartels? you are completely ignorant of what is really going on. the shootings are beyond stupid, especially for accurring at this kind of event. so many lives are taken due to mindless acts. so many innocent people and children are also killed. my family is in wilmington, i was raised there for the first few years of my life and my son is in school there. i understand and have witnessed life there with my own two eyes. and its not the best, or the worst.

    but i have a question for you. this occured during an anti gang program. in wilmington, where there is a lot of gang activity and your response was to close the borders.

    what do u want to happen because the jewish man killed the 8 year old boy in a jewish community in mew york? and the man who killed the pharamists? there was no gang influence there, so what action do u want to take about that?

      Amanda, you’re lying through your teeth, and you know it. Tell us all about the white and Asian gangs running around murdering people and terrorizing L.A. What are you going to do now, find a couple of L.A. murders committed by gangs that were neither Hispanic nor black, and then lie again, and say that white and Asian gangs kill as many people there as Hispanic and black ones? You’re pathetic. Are you from a gang family, or something?
