Shots Fired in Pico-Robertson

http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/shots_fired_in_picorobertson_20060602

A gang-related drive-by shooting in the heart of the Pico-Robertson neighborhood late Sunday night left members of the Jewish community rattled and shocked.

No one was injured when 13-15 shots were fired on the 1600 block of Wooster Street, which is one block east of Robertson Boulevard and two blocks south of Pico Boulevard. The heavily Jewish neighborhood has seen a rise in gang activity recently, with graffiti tagging popping up on buildings and signs and a shooting at a neighborhood park last year.

Neighborhood activists organized a candlelight vigil at the park Thursday night, and are working to galvanize rabbis and members of the Jewish community to help stop the infiltration of violence.
