On Thursday, October 9th 2014, 20-30 unsupervised students from local schools began a terrifying brawl outside a quiet Coffee shop on Vanderbilt Avenue b/t DeKalb and Lafayette Avenues (after school hours). Local business owners tried, desperately, to intervene but were met with profane language from students. 911 was called.
Come and join the conversation and help us to keep our neighborhood safe.
