Random portraits of the situation gleaned from twitter.
Apparently, it was this guy’s party, as he says here. He’d been planning this party since July 7th. The pictures indicate that a ‘hennesey party’ is exactly what it sounds like: a party w/ lots of hennesey liquor provided.
This person was shot. As was this person. This person was also shot — twice. This person was also shot, according to this tweet. This may be her in recovery, though I can’t be sure. It is, in any case, someone recovering from a gunshot wound.
This woman was shot and apparently killed. Her and her boyfriend were celebrating a 4 month anniversary. I’m confident enough to say that she is the Shyanne who many locals on twitter are talking about, based on comparing pictures from her account to those posted by others. She was apparently well-connected. One tweeter said that “This is Shyanne’s people we’re talking about. Now it’s gonna be war.” Here is a memorial collage that is making the rounds. Here is another memorial picture tweeted by someone.
This guy says that bullets grazed his head, and that “niggas” weren’t even aiming. Implies more than one shooter, I guess.
This guy is implying that there will be more violence in the future. The shooters “touched the wrong people”. “This isn’t over”. More of the same sentiment from this girl. And this woman, who says “there is gonna be war”. We should expect an “outrageous reaction”, because there will be a “heavy domino effect”. As another guy says, “Mandem aren’t gonna let this slide easy.” (‘Mandem’ = slang term for a collection of thugs.)
I fear for this community’s future.
