A Rockford man is in the hospital, the victim of an early evening shooting. 19 year old Dante Shaw was riding his bicycle in the Fairgrounds housing complex when someone shot him in the leg. The bullet went through his right leg and into his left. ...neighbors say this kind of violence is hardly an uncommon occurrence in their community.
Dana Rowry lives in the complex. "Oh my God, it's a whole bunch of kids down here. There's always kids down here playing all types of night," she says. "Everybody in this row got kids, everybody over there got kids. Tt's a shame that everybody...we live down here but we feel like prisoners in our own home because there's always stuff going on down here all the time.."
Police tell us Shaw's injuries are not life threatening. No one is in custody at this time.
