Major Melee at the Elks Club
Tonight, around 11pm or so, a giant melee broke out outside the Elks Club, where there was a “Birthday Party” for an unknown individual. Not sure if the person was from Hoboken or not, but apparently many people from the Projects were in attendance.
Something nutty happened and all of a sudden a full blown street fight broke out. Mutliple people at multiple locations. Ambulances were sent to 936 Washington, as well as 10th and Bloomfield. Additionally, it seems the fight(s) were spread out down to 7th and 8th and Washington all the way down to the Projects. Several individuals were taken to St. Mary Hospital.
As a reader indicated: “there were about 20 kids beating the hell out of someone in the middle of the intersection of 10th and washington. There was some girl screaming like crazy. At least 8 squad cars arrived in about 3 minutes. Stevens and NJ Transit were there too.”
Now, there are roving gangs of people coming from the Housing Projects on their way to the Hospital for some reason. There are packs of people related to this incident spread all over the area, including 11th and Hudson and other locations.
To this minute, fights are still continuing near the projects and other places. OUT OF CONTROL!
