"Suspects drove by him, confronted him and asked him if he was banging, 'Do you bang?' is what they stated," said Officer Travis Shephard, Grandview Police Department.The suspects showed their guns and as the victim ran for his life, they shot him with a shotgun and a pistol. He was taken to Sunnyside Hospital for a bullet wound to the buttocks and shotgun spray to the arm. Neighbors said drive-by shootings happen all to often on Avenue E.
"No this is not the first time. Last year somebody shot that truck over their," said Margarita Brito."Parts of the neighborhood have seen more gang related crime than others. This spot has had it's fair share over the years," said Shephard.Avenue E in Grandview, a few blocks down the Grandview Police Department, a few blocks the other direction McClure Elementary School. The street has had so many drive-bys that some residents are afraid to let their children play in their front yards.Officer Shephard said the victim is known to associate with one of the gangs in town. He lives in the neighborhood where he was shot, likely by a rival gang. "They don't seem to be fighting over guns it seems to be more, or drugs, it seems to be more of location, property, territory as you'd say," said Shephard."I have two children and they were here last night. They're scarred too, they say what happened what happened?" said Brito. Officer Shephard said Grandview's gang problem is an ongoing issue they battle everyday. The community can help by reporting suspicious activity.
