On a hot summer day, seeing kids playing at Eureka Gardens is a common sight. But a lot of times, those kids have to stay inside. “Eureka Gardens has been in the news a lot for the wrong reasons,” said attorney John Phillips.
For these kids, hearing gunshots is as normal as hearing the ice cream truck in other neighborhoods. Just this week, kids at Eureka Gardens heard 50 gunshots and seven people were shot. “When I was a child, I didn’t have to wake up not knowing where my school supplies were going to come from,” said Phillips.
