    I read today in the Royal Gazette about the gunshots in this area and how there was a shootout between Park Side and 42.If this was the case, i think that they should round up some of these people and test them for gunshot residue on their hands and clothes. This has been proven effective in some cases abroad.

    To be honest and not trying to be inflammatory, that info was credited to an unnamed police source, and our info [from 42 people themselves] is not the same.
