Pa. mayor closes block after gunfights

HARRISBURG - August 4, 2012

According to The Patriot-News, the gunplay along a block of Curtin Street in Harrisburg has left bullet holes in cars and homes.

Mayor Linda Thompson said Friday the 24-hour police barricade will stay up as long as necessary. She added no one will be allowed in without a photo identification proving they live there.

Residents complained to Thompson about gunfire on Wednesday, and more shots were reported Friday. Thompson says residents blame juveniles from outside the neighborhood who hang out at abandoned homes.
