Salemtown shooting on 4th Avenue North appears to be isolated

Last Wednesday several guns shots rang out on the 1600 block of 4th Avenue North. They were heard by several neighbors. Minutes later around half-a-dozen police cruisers barreled into Salemtown toward one of our more blighted apartment complexes, which are also currently on the auction block (flying lead can't be good for the art of the sale) after a protected dispute between owners. By the way, this is not the first time we have been subject to a shooting at the shady property.

According to a police scanner Twitter feed, a male suspect shot a male victim in the leg. Later, a neighbor on the Salemtown elist reported that acquaintances of both men said that incident was "a heated argument that went too far."

Outside of a blurb on 3 people getting shot in their legs on the same day, the news media has nothing on the Salemtown shooting. Police have not released a crime alert or any details.
