The shooting happened on the 200 block of Semple Street shortly before 9 p.m., police said.
The shooting happened in the 200 block of Semple Street, I used to live at 238 Kimble, one street over. Most of the houses there were built in the 1920s.
I've been talking with the girl that lived next door and Aliana said she was unloading groceries when she heard the shots. She also said that was the final straw, they're putting their house on the market and moving to Tennessee because she's not raising her girls in that environment.
When I first moved there in 1996, it was a nice neighborhood - quiet with a lot of older folks that would sit out on their front porch in the evening drinking tea and talking with other neighbors that were out for their evening walk. As time went by, those folks either died or sold their homes to go into retirement communities or whatever and younger folks moved in. Then they opened up an apartment complex on Johnson, 2 streets over, to Section 8 housing and shit really went downhill after that.
