Man shot on 11th and Butler in Chester
I saw there was a shooting at 11th and Butler yesterday on my Twitter time line. I read the WPVI post to the guy I was with who happens to live a few blocks from there. He looked over at his partner and they both seemed to acknowledge they knew something had happened but they didn't know the details. These two actually heard the gunshots.
My guy said there were 11 rapid fire shots from an automatic weapon followed by 5 or 6 single shots from a handgun. He knew by the sound of all that commotion that they really wanted to kill who ever they were after.
When I read the name of the victim to him, he didn't recognize the last name. Us Chester folks know most family names who live here, so for either of us not to know the last name was unusual...until this morning when I read the Delaware County Daily Times article on this shooting and learned the victim was from Brookhaven with Sun Valley High School connections. It doesn't take a rocket scientist (or social scientist) to make a pretty sure bet that this was probably a white guy. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
One can only imagine what went wrong.
