Shooting at LA Bus Stop

Headline: Eight Shot at Bus Stop in LA

Yesterday afternoon, a gunman opened fire into a crowd waiting for the bus at a busy Los Angeles intersection, hitting five children and three adults. The shooting happened right after classes in a nearby school let out, and witnesses still aren't clear where the gunman was before firing, or what motivated him.

A 12-year-old girl, the most seriously wounded, is now in stable condition at Children's Hospital.

Amir Khani, the owner of a discount store nearby the incident said, "These things, on this corner, happen all the time — street fighting, gangbanging. We see a lot of things around here. It's not surprising, because it happens all the time." He went on to say that between 2 and 5 p.m. everyday, gang activity is at its highest. This is the second outbreak of street violence in the area this week, and police agree that the gunbattle involved members of a notorious gang entrenched in that area for decades.

Gangs in Los Angeles are running rampant, and there really isn't enough done. With the border so porous, a lot of offenders flee to Mexico, and return at will.
