A Younger Generation Reenacts the Second Shooting in Two Days

Posted By Danica Li On May 16, 2008 @ 1:45 am In News | Comments Disabled

Two days after a gunman shot and killed an alleged drug dealer on Durant Avenue, Berkeley’s got another shooting on its hands. This one took place around 3 p.m. this afternoon, at the intersection of Dwight Way and Martin Luther King Jr. The 17-year-old boy, who was shot by another male teenager, managed to flag down a teacher driving by in her car. Eventually, the teacher notified police officers, and paramedics transported the injured victim to the hospital. We’re happy to report that this one doesn’t end as grimly as the other [1] ones [2] have — the victim’s alive and well, if a bit incapacitated about the abdomen area. Which is perhaps due to having been shot there. Yes.

Witnesses claim the young suspect fled the area by jumping over fences. Sound ridiculous? About as ridiculous as the fact that he’s described to have been between the ages of 15 and 17. Maybe people are suffering from heat-induced hallucinations. Maybe it’s so easy to procure a gun these days that it’s common for 15-year-old kids to stuff them into their backpacks and take them to school. We know which scenario we’d prefer.
