Last night, after putting Clementine to bed, I decided to walk up Cross Street to the Golden Wall, to get some food for Linette and me. As I approached their parking lot, I noticed that the entire property next door had been surrounded in yellow crime scene tape. I walked out into the street to avoid it, and, when I got the Golden Wall, I asked the two young women behind the counter what had happened. They said that they’d heard shots. They said, from what they’d heard, however, no one was hurt. Well, it seems as though that wasn’t quite the case. The following comes from the Ypsi Citizen:
…The report said the victim, a 32-year-old Ypsilanti resident, suffered a gunshot wound to his left arm and a flesh wound to the left side of his stomach area. He was treated at St. Joseph Hospital and later released…
A 17 year old Ypsilnati man has been arrested for the shooting, which apparently followed an altercation.
Speaking of the Ypsi Citizen, its editors are going to be at the Corner Brewery today at 5:00 to discuss the future of their enterprise. Here’s a clip from the calendar listing.
The editors of the Ypsilanti Citizen invite the community to the Corner Brewery to discuss issues, receive feedback and socialize with residents. We are interested in knowing your opinions about our service over the past several months, what you have come to expect and appreciate, where you would like to see us go and what the recent closure of the Ann Arbor News means for the Ypsilanti Community. If you have something to say or a question to ask come out any time, we will be here.
And, for what it’s worth, the Golden Wall has really great fake chicken, in case you’re ever in the mood, and they’re really nice people.
