Next thing you know. You're dead. Shot. Just like the bad old days.
Seems like some idiots were playing with guns on the roof of the Marlboro Projects. Probably just shooting for kicks. Who would think that one of these idiots would have good aim? That a bullet fired from a gun might hit and kill someone?
Ecuadorian immigrant Jorge Martinez lived not far from me, in Elmhurst. By all newspaper accounts he seems like a good man. Here's a picture of him and his son from the Post.
In the same article a woman is quoted as saying:
A couple of months ago, a bullet hit my window.... When I hear shots I tell my kids to get away from the window. I feel bad for the guy, but this is what goes on here.
