After another shooting this week, in west Medford near Columbus Avenue, residents say drugs, gangs and violence are turning their neighborhood into a scary place. Steve Best has details…..
Monday night’s shooting which sent one man to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds comes less than 48 hours after an apparently gang-related fight in the same area.
Police said the latest incident was not gang-related, but some neighbors are not so sure.
One said that the neighborhood had taken a turn for the worse, adding that they never used to have any problems until, as he put it, the drugs and gangs moved in, making things kind of scary.
One mother said that if the trouble isn’t gang related, it is people partying, drinking, fighting and doing stupid things. She won’t let her 4 year-old play outside, and some are considering moving away altogether.
