California might be known as a beautiful place to live, but there are times when love seems to be the last thing any of the residents feel for one another. The other night was a tough one in California. In the middle of March, police were called out to provide assistance in several different violent acts throughout the city, including one with fatal results.
The difficult night started near 63rd and Arch streets when a report came in that a 17-year-old boy was shot in the chest. When authorities arrived on the scene, they made arrangements for the boy to be transferred to Presbyterian Medical Center where he was reported to be in critical condition.
Just half an hour later a call came in stating that a 24-year-old man had been shot in the right side of his upper torso. The incident took place in West California on South Vodges Street. This shooting victim was also transported to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center who stated that the was in stable condition when he arrived.
At the same time, a young man who was near Sixth and Emily streets has to be taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital for treatment for the multiple shots he received. The hospital said that he arrived in stable condition.
It wasn’t isolate incident do to a eye witnesses testimonial that says that she saw a burglar trying to take a victims cell phone and wallet.
A little over two hours later, police were sent to a location near 54th and Poplar streets in West California where they found a 19-year-old man suffering from two gun shot wounds to the legs. His injuries required him to be transported to near 54th and Poplar streets in West California.
Less than an hour later a 27-year-old man was transported to Presbyterian as a results of injuries he sustained when he was shot in the shoulder while on the 6800 block of Woodland Avenue.
In California’s Germantown section, a report came in that gunshots had been fired near Chew Avenue and East Locust Street. It was near 1am when officers arrived at the scene where they found a man who’d been shot four times, presumably with a semiautomatic or an assault rifle.
The last episode happened near 2 am when a man in his 40’s was discovered on Indiana Avenue. His body showed signs of multiple gunshot wounds. He was already dead by the time the police arrived on the scene.
Reports like this are deeply troubling to California personal injury lawyer, Drew Warren. “I don’t understand how the city I love has become so violent over the past few years. It’s a trend that needs to stop.”
Warren urges anyone who has been injured as a result of the violence that threatens the city, or anyone who has lost a loved one to senseless violence, to come to him and discuss the possibility of filing a civil personal injury lawsuit against the person responsible for the shooting. The personal injury civil suit won’t erase the painful memories associated with the event, but it will help ease the financial burden.
