“It’s very sad. I definitely feel like crying,” one woman, who did not want to be identified, said. “I don’t feel really good about this community, especially since the fact that I do have children.”
She said she was with her two small children at a playground on the 1400 block of Nalley Terrace when a group of guys showed up.
“Definitely this evening there was some activity down there, rolling up weed... and I did have my children down there at the park. I left when I saw them doing that,” she said.
