Seriously, a parking spot? I heard about this last week. It's just making the news now? I know someone who lives on this block and they were told at the time it was gang related. Scrubbing the news?

Hi my opinion, I post what I get it from the Bolingbrook Police Department. When they're ready to release the information, that's when I get it. Thanks! Erin

I live there and this had nothing to do with a parking spot, from what I was hearing I would not be suprised if this was a drug deal gone bad and you should have seen everyone scatter when the police showed up.
