    Several had guns, most ran away. One was arrested. “Victim” was not seriously hurt. It was a drug deal gone bad.
    Ban all hand guns.

    That “victim” was a part of a drug deal, no one is innocent. Know your facts before you put your ignorant opinion about those people & the town.

      The police dispacher could not even get it right, would not except the call that it happened on the ally between 7th & 8th. This is where the drug deals happen. Get the dealers out of town and things will quite down.

    Wow this is so sad our kids are getting out of school walking home visiting friends and these low life POS with the balls to shoot a gun and a person . WHAT HAPPENED TO FIST FIGHT ? That’s how men handle disagreements back in the better more friendly days. People are just nuts anymore. NO RESPECT for themselves and others it is out of control. Kids need their butts busted when they disrespect and then this would not be going on cause they might have respect or some sort of fear of consequences but for most its to late.

      Agreed.. please get this Filth out of the Great town of Barberton.
