Man Shot While 3 Year Old Watches

Sad story of a man gunned down while out with what appears to be his girlfriend's kid in the backseat.

The location, 30th St and Central ave is at the nexus of 3 census tracts. All three have seen significant drops in population, and in an odd twist, these areas might be the cutting edge of gentrification. Some of the big old homes on East Fall Creek Parkway are gorgeous and cheap... because of the streets behind it. This trend may reverse if men keep getting gunned down at 11pm with toddlers in the back seat.

Section 1- 11% white, 84% black 2% hispanic, 3% other - Total pop dropped 33% since 2000, but the white pop increased 100%.
Section 2- 25% white, 68% black, 3% hispanic, 4% other - Total pop dropped 30%, but white pop increased 16%.
Section 3- 25% white, 68% black, 3% hispanic, 4% other - Total pop dropped 26%, but white pop increased 26%.
