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.
Sadly, I’m not surprised.
Tonquinisha isn’t an Amish name.
Or American Indian (Hekawi)
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.
BTW, the 17 year old who died was a Sophomore! (Maybe the youngest in her class?)
39?? and her parents were okay with this?
Quen’Tavia Henry was one of the party’s attendees.
What more needs to be said?
If zer0 had a son/daughter. Yatta yatta yatta...
...Named Shi’ Thead.
I am too. I should have mentioned that it was Saginaw, Mi. There are quite a few shootings there.
“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.
The 17-year old may have started school a year late... i am assuming the 39-year old is a the mother of one of the prom goers...
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 was 17 when I GRADUATED high school.
"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."
Yes, as were both of my daughters, sounds like it was Party time, no matter your age.
That’s a news headline that keeps on giving!
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.
The top 60 ghetto names.
I think she had access to too many food stamps.....
Are those skulls on her prom dress?
Amish or TEA party?
I’d guess the 39 yo was a grandmother or great grandmother.....
I’m sorry for her family’s loss.
But, SKULLS in lace??
Maybe it was a zombie themed prom?
Kids like this never have a chance. The decline of our society is so sad.
Oh my gosh, I think you’re right
There is also an area in Texas close to Dallas/Ft. Worth that is named Saginaw.
exactly, lie down with dogs....
My God! Whatever she’s eating I know that somehow my taxes are paying for it. She’s the 17 year old Michelin Tire woman
This story is from Texas, at least that’s were the site is from.
Just another one of those minority children who “goes to bed hungry every night”
Clicking on the link indicates this was in TX.
SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) A 17-year-old girl fatally shot in a parking lot before a prom was a sophomore at Saginaw High School, an official said Friday.
well, MI makes more sense
The report is from a Texas site, however it did happen in the town near me and it was Saginaw, Mi.
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."
I can't pronounce her first name..but at least she comes from good Irish stock
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).
The Tonkin Gulf, another black spot in history where lies were perpetrated to create a justification to send our soldiers to war?
Looks like Saginaw Texas is named after Saginaw Mi. (Originally named Dido)
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.” It is also the name of a river, a bay, and a city in Michigan.
