Witnesses say a male fired four shots at two underaged young men and it has ben confirmed that both boys were grazed. There aren’t many details on this story, and we attempted to reach out to get the inside version, but no one would comment. At press time, there have been no arrests.
So far, not too many people are talking. I understand that. However, I don’t want to see anybody get hurt or go to jail. Believe that. But hey y’all, y’all are youngsters. What happened to squarin’ up and throwing hands? Whatever y’alls beef is, it can’t be that serious. Real talk, don’t throw your lives away behind anything petty. The penitentiary is real. I just did 10! There’s nothing cool or glamorous about it. The streets ain’t gonna be in there with you. Everything keey’allps moving while your life stops!!! Pause and think about what y’all doing in the streets. If we all come together, we can make some real, and positive changes around Marion. But y’all got to be cool. Halla at me.
