The Gazette has not had much luck confirming reports of Gary homicides lately.  It seems the City information pipeline has a major clog, releasing only the information that is necessary.  Nonetheless, we will continue to provide unofficial reports of homicides in Gary.  Word is that there was a shooting at 17th and Jennings just after 7:00 tonight.  Anyone with details, please submit a comment or email ken@northwestindianagazette.com
