23-year-old man shot near 27th street

Chattanooga Police said they have had reports that a person had been shot near 27th Street and Fourth Avenue last night around 10 o'clock.

Shortly afterwards, police officials said they received a call from Erlanger hospital informing them that a gunshot victim had shown up at the hospital.

The responding officer spoke to the gunshot victim Robert Smith, 23, at the hospital but was given multiple accounts of the incident, police said.

Smith was treated and released for a gunshot wound to his left bicep area, according to police.

I think it's more of the matter of doing their job and reporting the news... hence the job descriptions "News Reporter" and "Journalist". There is no "Why" the story because there is no reason for it. It was simply the troubled souls of the minorities solving an issue the way they've gotten used to doing now-- ending the life of someone else. Let's not get upset that the news is being reported, but that this is going on in the first place.....!/pages/Cease-Fire-Chattanooga/112964662116267

Libertarian - Cease Fire Chattanooga promotes taking a stand against gang violence. Thanks to your "brilliant" reporting in your comment we don't know if you were just too lazy to look it up, can't read properly, or are just incapable of seeing anything besides some weird anti-gun conspiracy in everything you see, hear or read.

Shock - My bet is all three. Just yesterday he was showing his disdain for anything educational as just a waste of time.

Huey Lewis and the News at Riverbend tonight. We're not going now because of the TFP's scare tactics. Instead we're going to Taco Bell and calling it a night.

Libertarian - so you've proven that there's a website out there that supports gun control that is not the website you were originally bashing. Congratulations on a brilliant argument.

It's similar to your posts I was reading the other day where you refused to answer the question as to whether you thought traffic stops infringed on citizens' rights.
