Gunman shoots 3 outside Nickelodean party

Nicklelodean held its Kid’s Choice Awards program the other night, and as with any Hollywood production of this type, there were award parties afterwards.  One such party in West LA drew some unexpected fans.  Who knew that gangsters watched Nick at Night?

LA street gangs have garnered a reputation as being the most violent in the country.  Do they watch Nickelodean to ‘chill’?  The gunman apparently had been denied access to the party, and fired into the crowd in retaliation.  Police have called the shooting gang related, since blocks of the city are divided up into ‘turf’.  Gang members assume the right to enter anywhere they like, as long as it’s in their territory.
