There is a misprint of location. The shooting incident DID NOT! occur in the 2600 blk of Greenmount Avenue, it happened in the 2800 blk of Greenmount Avenue where the young man died in the doorway of Byrdland take out. And Joe...grow up or shut up. Who is they and them? and why are you perpuating more ignorance and violence?
