Good eye catching headline

That is over the top.

2 idiots discharged a firearm (maybe) in a motel room.

Generally when I read "Shooting", it means someone was shot or shot at.

But based on the un-updated article, We have ZERO Victims, no mention of bullet holes, spent cartridge shells found at the scene, gun play, or any of the normal aftermath of a "Shooting" type stuff.

Also how about posting a picture from the Motel Security Camera?

At least this article reported the skin-color

At least this article reported the skin-color of the "alleged" shooting perps. In the past the local journalists and reporters have been so brainwashed with political correctness that they have been reluctant to report or remiss in reporting the skin color of the "alleged" perps whom the police are searching for and whom "we-the-public" should be on the lookout for - especially if they were alleged to be "dangerous" perps.
