      Centurion & Sue, what does it matter if they go to church? These comments are pretty ignorant as none of these shootings are in or neighboring Gresham.

    • Reb Biker

      It’s funny to watch someone accuse others of hiding behind their computer screen, as they hide behind their own computer screen.

  • Dawn

    Very sad yet outraged that a shooting happened on my childhood block of Pippin. I spent 25 years there without any incidents, and now this ! Way to go you animals! Shame on you !
