Clothes litter the parking lot where four people were shot during a pre-prom gathering for Saginaw High School near the Florence Event Hall, 110 Florence in Saginaw, Thursday, May 23, 2013. A 17-year-old girl died. Three other women, ages 18, 19 and 39 were injured during the shooting and were receiving treatment at a local hospital.

I’m still amazed that there’s more than one Saginaw in the USA.

Tonquinisha isn’t an Amish name.

You have a 17 year old who is a sophmore, thinking kind of old for a sophmore, and a 39 year old, was she a senior??? Hard to follow all of this crap anymore.

I am too. I should have mentioned that it was Saginaw, Mi. There are quite a few shootings there.

“Mosley identified the victim as Tonquinisha McKinley. Police Sgt. Reggie Williams said there were “multiple shooters.”

“Every year, we usually have an incident of some sort,” he said. “Last year, we had shots fired. The year before, we had a fight. ... Nothing good comes from it.”

Three women, ages 18, 19 and 39, were taken to a hospital for treatment. Police said their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.”

Four teenagers were shot at a student prom event. One was killed. Last year shots were fired at a similar event. Every year thugs operate with impunity.

The shooters, and other high school aged thugs, had no problem obtaining illegal guns despite strict gun laws. There is no attempt to enforce the law and make students safe.

Evidently this was a separate party, eight miles from where the prom was held.

I was wondering how they could hold the prom even if they wanted to, if the police put tape all around the place. But evidently this was some kind of gangsta parking lot party preceding the prom—which students had been warned not to attend.

I don’t think there should be such a thing as proms, and definitely not associated with public schools. Let parents organize and run them.

There is also an area in Texas close to Dallas/Ft. Worth that is named Saginaw.

The report is from a Texas site, however it did happen in the town near me and it was Saginaw, Mi.

The towns are closely related, here's a tidbit about the one in Texas:

The town was renamed Saginaw in 1882 by Jarvis J. Green, who had lived and worked on Saginaw Street in Pontiac, Michigan. The name Saginaw comes from the Ojibwe language and means "to flow out."

Article says it is Saginaw, Michigan. It is from the AP. Maybe someone in TX got mixed up. Or maybe sister cities. Saginaw, TX may be rough town too, but it is not a boarder town so I doubt it comes close to Saginaw. Saginaw is mini Detroit. BTW there is a Saginaw, Alabama too. Of the three the latter likely the best.

Tonquinisha ... like “Tonkin Gulf.” Maybe someone in the family tree was a Vietnam vet.

Its a pretty curious name to be found in such diverse places. What Wiki says about Saginaw Michigan.

The name Saginaw is widely believed to mean “where the Sauk were” in the Ojibwe language, possibly in reference to the Sauk tribe who lived at the mouth of the river. Another possible explanation is that it originated from “Sace-nong” or “Sak-e-nong” (English: Sauk Town) because the Sauk people once lived there, or from Chippewa words meaning ‘place of the outlet’ from “sag” (English: opening), and “ong” (English: place of).

Looks like Saginaw Texas is named after Saginaw Mi. (Originally named Dido)

From Wiki

The town was renamed Saginaw in 1882 by Jarvis J. Green, who had lived and worked on Saginaw Street in Pontiac, Michigan.[1] The name Saginaw comes from the Ojibwe language and means “to flow out.” It is also the name of a river, a bay, and a city in Michigan.
