    Any word yet on whether all of these incidents tonight are related? Too much action happening in the neighborhood.

      Far as I can tell, way too early for that to be known. They were still trying to sort out who did what to whom in the earlier incident. I hope to get the eventual incident reports on Monday but that can be hit/miss. Also remember the Crime Prevention Council meeting is on Tuesday night and that’s a good place for an overview, provided someone is there to ask questions… TR

        Hoping this incident would put a spotlight on those apartments so the police can clean it out.

          I live in “those apartments”. In the 3 years I have lived here, nothing like this has happened till last night.
          What are police “cleaning out”?

            There was a man stabbed to death on the corner across from “those apartments” just a few months ago.

            The stabbing in which a man was killed a few months happened few blocks further south than last night’s incident.

            I am sure there are some fine citizens that live in those apartments. However, pay attention to the activities, the types of people who loiter around and go in and out and you’ll understand. I have seen drug deals occur there, I have seen people doing drugs in their cars right out front, etc. It is easy to connect the dots when it is pretty blatant.

    I don’t recall any link being made between those apartments and the fatal stabbing incident from a few months ago.

    • Marianne October 14, 2018 (8:12 pm)

      No, but Rain said that nothing like the shooting had happened at the apartments in the three years that she has lived there. I just pointed out that a man, Michael Abay, was stabbed to death across the street. Not to mention many other shootings and stabbings within blocks all directions from the intersection of 17th Ave SW and SW Cambridge St

    I don’t think Rain was denying the incidents. I think he/she was responding to the post right above his/hers that seemed to imply that the police need to “clean out” the apartments as if there was some link between people in the apartments and the incidents that have taken place outside of them. I also live on 17th in close proximity to where all of these incidents over the years have taken place – I sure wouldn’t want someone to connect me, my many wonderful neighbors, or our properties to any of them just by the fact that we live in the vicinity.

Sorry, comment time is over.
