Fireworks Theft, Stabbing May Be Gang-Related

Posted Friday, July 5th 2013 @ 11am  by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

Police are continuing to search for three Hispanic suspects -- in their late teens -- who stole fireworks from three other youths, and put one boy, 17, into the hospital with stab wounds.

Authorities say the attack may have been gang-related.

The three victims had just purchased fireworks at a tent, in the Smiths Grocery Store parking lot, at 8th East, 45th South.

The stabbing victim -- last listed in serious condition -- received his injuries, after running after the suspects on foot.

Authorities believe the suspects fled in a black Dodge Durango, with tinted windows.
