Harlem Shootings (III)

Seems like you've officially entered the blogosphere when you're quoted in other blogs.

More on the Harlem shootings at Gothamist and NYC The Blog and great pictures at Harlem Hybrid.

Seems like my initial report of 14 guns and 7 shot was right on the mark (at the time I hedged the shooting number with "give or take one or two"). There were seven shootings if you believe an anonymous comment about "another, unreported shooting at Fred Doug and 127th." I'm inclined to believe seven because that's what I was told. But six or seven, I guess it doesn't matter either way, unless, of course, you're the seventh victim.

The old (high-school) journalist in me likes to be able to actually break some important(?) news.

There was also a shooting that night on 133rd and 8th. I don't believe it was reported on.
