Friday's local news will include talk about gangs and violence. How do we know? Springfield police and the Greene County prosecutor have a 10 a.m. news conference -- in an alleyway, of all places -- to "make an announcement regarding the Grand Jury’s first indictment. Chief [Lynn] Rowe will address the rise of criminal activity, acts of violence in the Springfield Community, and discuss the newly formed Gang Task Force."
The news conference will be held in the alley behind 409 N. Boonville Ave. Ambience, you know.
