Eastside Shooting

While scanning the website for an update on another shooting, I saw a link to another shooting on the 4th of July weekend. Victim is a 19 year old just days from turning 20. Suspect is a black male who left the scene just before the cops arrived. People are talking with the police, and hopefully, they can find the killer and bring him to justice. The 9400 East 44th St, per the NY Times 2010 census map, is 8% white, 66% black, 23% hispanic, 2% other. The area has gained population by 7% since 2000 mostly due to the hispanic boom of 385% since 2000 to more than offset the drop by the black and white populations.
