Something that didn't make the news or reports is that people and cars were the victims of drive by shootings with a pellet gun in front of the Colton Theater on St. Claude during Jazzfest. Granted it was a pellet gun, but it was forceful enough to knock out a car window. Some of the victims are discussing it at lists.netspace.org/archives/galactic.html (May 2009 Week 1). Here's a direct link, you can contact them for more details:
