    We should all be vigilant and keep our eyes open for the suspect. Oops, I forgot, the most important part of the story, the suspects description, was not given. Not much of a story without that info.

    We don’t need a desciption, the suspect is a black negro. Who the hell else is going to be out at 3AM, shooting at people?

        @NWA, What is the matter with you? Why would you make such an offensive comment? Yo Momma? You sound like some ghetto school boy. Please get yourself some help.

        @ NWA….. You are a punk who hides behind his computer. You don’t have the guts to say our comments to someone face to face.

    Obviously the shooters have no regards for their life or others. Stop killing and cherish life. You could be the target of someone with a gun also.
