Ellis Meighan Nabbed for Attempted Murder of Longtime Rival

Ellis Meighan

For several months we have reported on the continuing feud among rival factions within the Ghost Town Gang.  Enmity between the Meighan siblings and Kendis Flowers has led to ongoing retaliation involving gunplay.  The latest incident occurred on Thursday when Flowers and an associate came under attack by a lone gunman as the pair alighted a cab on Vernon Street near its intersection with Lakeview Street.  According to the twenty-three-year-old construction worker, sometime around ten o’clock, himself and forty-two-year-old Ralph Martinez were shot at multiple times by someone identified only as Ellis.  While both men escaped grave injuries, police were able to recover six, nine millimeter expended shells and later detained Ellis Meighan pending charges of attempted murder.  Incidentally, that shooting incident took place at the same location where print journalist Kareem Clarke was gunned down on Monday morning.
