Shooting @ 99 cent store on Sunset last night

[If you are looking for info on the fatal stabbing at Safari Sam's on Feb 10th 2008, click here]

I just heard via one of a thousand LJ blogs I read* that someone was shot in the other end of the 99cent store parking lot that the club Safari Sam's (and my usual Wednesday night hangout Kiss Or Kill) share with last night.

Sad - scary.
I hope it wasn't someone from kiss or kill that night but any death is regretful.

[update - I talked to couple people out in the front patio (located in the parking lot) and most think it was gang related - nothing to do with the club - the other end of the parking lot is seriously half a block away]

      I was out listening to some bands at a club on Sunset Blvd recently when an unfortunate drive-by shooting occurred around 10:15 p.m. (I hope the individual is doing fine.)

Based on the fact that a crime occurred, I think this is all very acceptable; however, the behavior of the police lacked much needed empathy. .....full post
