Continued Gang Violence in Downings
Even though leading figures in the settlement have called for peace, violence between members of rival gangs is on the rise here in Downings. Shootings have occurred recently at several raves, and it seems that every week a body is fished out of the subterranean lakes of West Terra.
A former sub-boss of Rama’s has also been killed in a bomb explosion at a diner off the Imperial Way. Joran Nitra was known as a moderate figure among the leaders in Downings. A woman named Elysia Graham was treated for injuries from the blast as well, but was not available for comments on the incident. Fortunately, there were no other injuries. The bombing took place while the popular eatery was closed for the night. Dozens of patrons usually fill the ‘Coffee and Snackery’ morning and night.
