The rumor I've heard is that the "street party" [on 6th Avenue, North] last weekend was a makeshift memorial for the guy who was shot and killed at that "Firm" night club [near the Gulch] (they say he had shot someone but that person didn't die, so him being shot was a retaliation). Allegedly he was a blood and lived on 6th. His funeral was earlier today at the funeral home at Monroe and 8th [Germantown] where it was reported that everyone there was also in red. I've heard that the police were at the funeral and I've already noticed increased patrols, myself. Sounds like they have a handle on this.
