Exactly how would it being 'gang related' change any of the facts? Gang Related should not be a catch all phrase that somehow alters the facts.

So there were 2 shootings in Belle Haven yesterday, one w/a suspected gang ties, the other unknown?

Who was wielding the baseball bat in the traffic-related shooting?

Very poor information in the above article.

The SJMerc has a coherent story: Web Link

Sounded like there was also an exchange of gunfire between individuals in cars near the YMCA earlier this afternoon.

Thank you, Joe! It seems the info still isn't clear. I do like the clarification between suspect Jaime Romero & cop Jaime Romero - I wondered if they'd mention that :-)

How awful for the kids in lockdown & all other civilians around the area.

Traffic last night was terrible enough w/the Bay Bridge closure, then to add a shooting at a major thoroughfare - ugh!
