She could've just as well have been a South Huntington Student. It says Huntington Station women so that doesn't automatically mean a Huntington School District Student. Who knows she might even go to St. Anthony's. Praying for a quick recovery for this young lady who looks like she was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.

At a recent gathering of Coalition of Clergy, religious leaders organized and structured an action plan toward the common goal of peace. The desirable outcome is non-violence and unity in the midst of diversity. We urge the formation of neighborhoods in action to prevent violence. We pray for the healing of the victim(s) and mindset of criminals.

Does anyone know why these kids decided to shoot at a group of people at a party? Is there a feud or just a random act of violence?
