db1998 - Shooting near 8th and York - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.
WarCry - Seven Dead, 34 Hurt In Weekend Shootings In Chicago - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
