We are not even getting a break from the bullets. the boy was walking down the street. Soon we will be getting shot sitting on our couches. These are the saddest things to read about people. I hope they find the person before another gets hurt. NEW YORK (WABC) -- A 17-year-old was hit three times by either BBs or small-caliber gunfire as he walked along a Manhattan street Friday afternoon. Authorities say the teen, who is unidentified, told police he felt suddenly felt pain as he was walking in the area of 351 West 18th Street between 8th and 9th avenues just after 3:30 p.m. The teen was rushed to St. Vincent's Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition. He is being treated for wounds to his neck, arm and groin. Police are still looking for the shooter, and for a motive. http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=6048503

It seems it is unsafe to do anything anymore. I hope they find the person or people that are doing this. We should not have to be afraid to walk down the street.

We can never be too careful. We are just walking on a street and you will be shot by someone you don’t even know, or haven’t even seen! How can we ever protect ourselves from street crimes like that?
