Take the guns from your sons - a local father's plea

Don't get me wrong, it's always good with the PPD takes a shooter off the streets. I'm looking forward to the days when we find the shooters who are killing people. Do you think it depends on the location you are in when you get shot?
Man arrested in shooting in City Hall parking lot
An 18-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting in the City Hall parking lot on Oct. 9.

Cory W. Bragg was booked shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday on two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, aggravated battery with a firearm and damage to property.

On the night of the shooting, police had been dispatched at 11:57 p.m. to the Locker Room, 112 SW Jefferson Ave. An officer was flagged down after he arrived about shots being fired nearby in the 400 block of Fulton Street.

At least two people apparently had exchanged gunfire in the block after an under-21 party at the establishment. A 17-year-old girl was shot in the hand.

The vehicle the victim was sitting inside was hit twice - once in the driver's door and once in a rear passenger door. A window in the glass arcade of the Peoria Civic Center behind the parking lot also was shot out.Source
