According to some sources close to last week’s shooting in Bangor, the violence was the result, at least in part, of clashing gangs. Are there chapters of national gangs in Bangor? Or is the term “gang” being used in a loose sense, connoting a group of young people who support each other when they get into conflicts with peers? What would make someone

join a gang in Bangor, or anywhere? Will there be more of this kind of violence, or is the shooting an aberration?
