#100Days100Nights: Los Angeles On High-Alert As Gangs Compete to Kill 100 People in 100 Days
#100Days100Nights, is reportedly the new competition between two violent street gangs in Los Angeles, CA in which they aim to kill 100 people in the course of 100 days. The so-called contest is in response to the death of Rollin 100 (Crips) gang member KP.
Allegedly, as a response fellow gang members have warned on social media that anyone caught between the avenues of Western and Normandie is risking their life and may be shot regardless of whether they are in a gang or not.
Though this has not truly been confirmed to be a credible threat, the LAPD is taking the matter seriously and has ordered increased patrols, as well as deploying additional officers in the area.
If you live in Los Angeles and you dont have a gun, you should get one ASAP.
Two Los Angeles gangs have entered into a contest betting on who can kill 100 people in 100 days.
A rise in violent crimes occurred over the weekend as one man was shot dead and 12 were wounded after more than six shootings in the 77th Street district which has some of the citys most violent neighborhoods, the Los Angeles Times reported.
On Thursday night, a woman and two young boys aged four and 11, were wounded after the gunman, who is still at large, approached their car and opened fire on the 2000 block of West 99th Street.
A brief search on social media shows that residents on LA are taking the threat seriously as well, many of who have come out publicly condemning the rumored challenge.
