Gangsters: Making Them Young These Days
How young do gangsters get? If you believe a kid La Crosse cops have recently busted, it can be eleven years old. They say the young punk, while at the tennis courts on 7th and Farnam, whipped out a BB gun from his waistband and shot another middle schooler in the gut at close range, drawing blood. Police say he also threatened a witness to keep quiet about it or he'd shoot her, too. The kid claims to be part of the Gangster Disciples, just like his older brother. Cops believe it and say he was involved in another gang dust-up last month with the Crazy Hmong Boys.
