Crescent City had its first drive-by shooting last night on Kern Street. Seven shots were fired into a home on Kern Street, nearly hitting an elderly woman.
When the police responded to the home they detained a minor male until they realized he was not a suspect but a victim.
Currently, our youth have access to firearms. It is reported that buying a gun off the streets in Crescent City is not only easy but fairly cheap. The going price is between $100 to $200 depending on the condition of the gun.
So the time is here. Our community is not without worry. Everyday you turn on the news and there is another shooting. I only hope that our law enforcement is ready if it is brought into the school.
I asked for a comment from Sheriff Garrett Scott and at the moment of this writing he was not available to comment.
