There was another gang-related shooting in Anaheim, which took place this evening on the 700 block of north East Street. The OC Register reports:
Officers arrived to find a male suffering from at least one gunshot wound lying on a sidewalk in front of a residence.
The victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Dunn said.
It wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the shooting, and no information about the shooter or shooters has been released.
Based on the circumstances, police suspect that the shooting is gang-related, Dunn said.
Quick! Organize a streetside candidate forum near the scene of the shooting and engage in some heavy-duty community listening. Or respond by hitting visitors to Disneyland and Angel games with a dollar admission tax. Or maybe divert a fixed percentage of transient occupancy tax — say, 1%? — to city social programs.
Any of those should do the trick.
