Gang Violence in Lynn? I'm Stunned!

Boy, 10, Shot In Gang-Related Shooting

LYNN, Mass. -- A young boy was hospitalized after being shot inside a Lynn home Thursday night.


Authorities said the child was not the intended target. They said they suspect gang activity involving two warring gang factions. One gang member lives on the street and investigators said he was the likely target of the shooting.

In related news, State Senator Jarrett Barrios introduced legislation today that would allow the police to begin confiscating cars from sober people with clean driving records in order to reduce the number of drunk driving-related fatalities in the Commonwealth.

Senator Ted Kennedy was unavailable for comment.
