This is too tragic beyond words. To lose two family members, especially a young boy, in this manner is hard to comprehend and even harder to make sense of. I hope the catch the coward(s) responsible for this soon.

The gang culture is handed down from generation to generation - babies born to stupid females who actually screw gang bangers should have their infants removed the day they are born - that is the only way to stop the cycle

Stupid people should be spayed or at least have thier fingers removed so they can't type ignorant comments. These people who hosted the party for their blind daughter, to celebrate her graduation from high school are not gang related in any way. They are devoted to their daughter and have done a great job raising her to overcome her disability. This is a tragedy that shouldn't have happened. But these are GOOD people.

why do people automatically assume all shootings are gang related? Other races know how to shoot a gun. There were no names even mentioned in the article so how do you come to the conclusion it was gang related?

Shootings are now out of control. These cowards amount to terrorists taking over cities and making them dangerous, and no one is taking any significant steps to address this problem. Lee Baca and his chronies should be fired.

This family lives near us. In no way are they gang related. Just because they might have the appearance does not mean they are gang related. This family has get togethers and have family members such as (aunts, uncles, cousins) at their gatherings. Just having fun and keeping family together. I see alot of stupid teenagers (taggers running around the neighborhood, not even gang members because they are NOT gang members,,just taggers trying to get respect from gangs)tagging on people's property. Not only alleys now but also house's garages. How low can they go to get this respect. If they are after a particular person, they should go heads up, why cowardly and start shooting with a gun, and to top it off shooting at the wrong person. Of this whole incident, it pssts me off that a innoncent 12 year old boy had to die. I think sometimes it could have been my 12 year old. I feel for the mother of this boy and for my neighbors that are feeling horrible that this had to happen at their house.

People that are entering their comments without knowing the facts, if you have nothing nice to say keep it to yourself. Can't believe everything the news say. Channel 7 is stating it was a drive by and channel 4 is stating that an argument broke out and they were uninvited guests.
