    I can promise there where drugs involved one way or another which led to the shooting. I work in that hell hole of a town. Most of Youngstown to include that area is a well know heavy drug area. The campus has regular gang active and drug dealers all over the place is the norm. The cops are either corrupt and ARE getting a cut, or there is someone above them who is. When we have a shooting on E. market street for example the officers will wait 25 mins plus before any show on scene. The sad part is that shootings like this happen on a monthly bases and it gets much more frequent when summer hits. If you want combat experience and you don't want to join the military this is the place, you hear pistol and automatic gunfire throughout the night like its the forth of July. If the city ever burned to the ground you would not see me shed a tear.

    It was a fight over a girl. Unfortunately it was a house party, so they had lax security. Normally they had events at bars and other venues with better security, but this even was a lapse in judgment that cost people their lives. But from an OC point of view, the saddest thing was hearing the witnesses recount "No one fired back."
