    I live in this neighborhood and this is literally a few houses away from me. So crazy to hear someone went ballistic so close to my home. I've always thought that this area is so safe but now after this incident you never know how people really are, even your own neighbors.

      Hope the officer fully recovers. I'm a couple of miles away and this shocked me as well. Probably a rejected "ex". Domestic disputes are everywhere. These macho men can't handle rejection. Good that the trash got taken out.

      Yes, Iived there in the 80s and five years ago for five years. Plan on mov.i.n.g back. Love the area. Seems like lots of molesters down there. Never heard of a shoot.i.n.g until now.

    Not that your comment is relevant (yet typical of you), but whoever it is probably is in a higher tax bracket than you. Maybe that's why your comments continue to reflect your white trash mentality.
