It's a sad day for all of Elgin. It shows that as a town and as parents we need to be doing more to keep our kids out of the gangs. We need more policing in our schools and communities and our parents need resources to keep out kids safe. My heart breaks for all the families that have been affected by this tragedy.

Stupid m'f above me(Insane OA) you have some serious growing up to do. You have no respect for anything or anyone and just like the rest of the dumb gangbangers out there, you're throwing your life away too. I don't think you understand that in actuality 3 lives are lost now and 3 families are broken. All because of gangs. While they're locked up in jail their so called "brothers" are out here enjoying freedom not doing shit for those young ones in jail except saying "Free my dude ___" like that's going to help anyone. It's sad to see people doing stupid shit like this, especially 15 year olds who had a chance of making something of themselves because they got a hold of a weapon ! What happened to learning from the past and not repeat it ?
