Wow. I though Sam Levin wasn't with RFT anymore.. Reporting on violence was his thing, and RFT remained quiet about it until recently.


In addition to the incidents noted in article and on the same date a man age 48 was shot in the 1400 block of Union, 7:45 PM; about 20 minutes later another man was shot in arm in the 1200 block of S. 14th (supposedly related to Manley case). Both hospitalized.
