Did ANYONE proofread this??? Goods LORD! IS Stacie the ONLY person working at the Patch? *What time did this take place? Night? Day? * What was the time span of these attacks? All three in 5 minutes? 10? Within a half hour??? *What is a 'shot victim'? *Are the suspects or the victims all between 18 & 24 years old and medium build? What is the nationality of the alleged perps? Describing their hair and clothing ONLY would describe about 75% of the residents of this city. Any facial hair? Tattoos? They engaged the victims, the victims would have had a better description of them, one would think."
