I live very close to where this happened there were two news stations here. Out taking film and on the scene for about 1 hour. It happened between 8:30 and 9:00 and I have still seen nothing on the news..........why are all the shootings in Everett never reported on?
I saw it on 7news this morning.

One more thought: use the Everett Police "Text a Tip" function - flood them with anything you see that seems out of order. Text EVERETT and your tip to 847411.

I live right next to there too, and it looked like a movie scene outside my house last night! I had no clue what was going on, and when I tried to ask the troopers what they were doing in my driveway, guess who they say they will arrest?! They just scream at me to "get the f inside"(no explanation), I've crossed police tape!! They even said they will shoot my dog!! What ever happened to the day when the police were on our side? They only made me even more nervous!! Yes, then I try to see whats going on on tv, and it turns out this thread seems like Everetts only source of news!! I'm disgusted!!

If the police are searching for suspects, doesn't that imply that they have a description? Why is the description not being released to the public.

If you haven't heard anything it means they are still at large. If they caught them there would be press conferences. I was told this was not a random crime.

I'm going to weight in that this was not a random crime .... However, it was just luck that an innocent individual was not shot, bullets do not discriminate who they are intended for. If the victim was from El Salvador, the MS 13 gang is very active there and these immigrants are going to bring that culture with them. Of course, right now everything is 'allegedly'... Yes there are gangs in Everett -- however, there are gangs in most urban and suburban communities (Boston area). Public transportation is a huge draw from the inner city to outlying suburbs.

Well since the Brazilians have left the landlords are desperate to rent out to anyone in Everett to cover their mortgage payments, and many of the new arrivals to Everett are Central Americans who tend to bring their own to live with them, and many of them are gang members.

This is the NEW NORMAL in Everett !!

You are misinformed.

The Brazilians have not left Everett. Any who spends a half a day in Everett can plainly see they are still here.

El Salvadorans and Guatemalans have been in Everett a long time. They are not "new" arrivals or the "new" normal. The majority of them are quiet hard working people who mind their own business and respect their neighbors. Of course every ethnic group has some bad apples, including Brazilians.

For those who would like to educate themselves: The MS-13 gang didn't originate in Central America. You have Los Angeles, California to thank for that particular organization. And they are not just a problem in Everett; the "problem" is an international one and gangs such as MS-13 have migrated not only to Central America but to Europe as well.

The MS 13 gangs started in LA by El Salvadorian or Central Americans and not by Americans who live there.

Yes there are still a lot of Brazilians in Everett, but not as much as before, a lot of them has left the US due to the economy, there are a lot of businesses that cater to the Brazilian community here, perhaps that is why you see a lot of Brazilians here.

There are bad apples everywhere I do agree, much of the crime in Everett is commited by Americans, but regarding the MS 13 gangs they are a Central American problem, and most likley from El Salvador. Go to youtube and imput ms13, mara salvatruccia and you will find them in El Salvador.

These gangs are where Central Americans live such as Chelsea, Somerville, East Boston and now Everett. Even the Colombians hate the Central Americans because of this.

Yes this is the NEW NORMAL because they are buying properties here and brining their own baggage.

Deal with it.

I have no idea how long you have been in Everett or if you are even in Everett. But you keep using the word "new" to refer to the presence of central americans in Everett. Maybe you are not aware of the fact that there has been a significant population of El Salvadorans and Guatemalens as far back as the McCarthy administration. Do you know when that was? You seem to think life in Everett begins and ends with the Brazilians. Also in case you didn't know, Brazilians have gangs too. Crime in the major cities in Brazil make what goes on here look like peaceful coexistence.

Been here for T 50 years, you seem to do nothing but defend the new influx of third world flotsam and jestum that has washed up on our shores the last 20 years or so........ON OUR DIME as opposed to LEGAL immigration influx of the past who needed SPONSORS and were given NO taxpayer funded "freebies".

And yes I realize that we have just as many home grown useless eaters feeding off the teat of the state, they should all be sent to Dickensian PoorHouses, their useless spawn returned to orphanages and the feeble minded back to the asylums.

How ya like dem apples?

Ah what a clever tatic, pin the poor against the middle class, legals vs illegals, immigrants vs americans, white americans vs black americans, ect ect ect
Look at people as individuals not groups....
Why not fight the ROOT of crime? Drug laws and poverty?
