Actually know the guy having

Note: Updated only to remove a cashiers name

Actually know the guy having bumped into him a few times at Pine Hill Grocery buying my Lottery Tickets.

Openly friendly and a well liked guy with a long pony tail, with one heck of big Chest tattoo of a Eagle.

One the store cashiers at Pine Hill was very upset after another customer walked in and inform us of the shooting around 4:30pm.

The victim was just in the store about 45 minutes prior, according to the other cashier they just rang up his purchases and had chatted.

We were told at the time he was deceased, but the article says he is critical, so we are hoping we got bad info and he pulls through.

BTW: The female shooter was generally described as a personality problem type person.

Umm, the neighbors are

Umm, the neighbors are restless. Hope this guy makes it okay.

Maybe it's the heat. My AC went out today and things were getting pretty irritable around here until the repairman showed up and got us going again about 5 PM. No shootings but we were spitting and hissing at each other.

Didn't try to kill him? Maybe just aimed low and was a bad shot.

He was convicted of 3 counts

He was convicted of 3 counts of incest with a minor and served nearly 10 years. "Openly friendly and well-liked". Ugh.

Seems like he had personality problems too.

csrareader - Thanks I missed that one?

I only saw a simple assault charge when I pulled a basic BkGrd record yesterday.

There may be a lot more to this story.

I see his offense happened when he live in the 1300 Block of H/M rd. I also see the shooter lives (lived) on the same block now?

Now I have to wonder at this point, if there is any collation between that event and this event and the addresses?

Shot in the torso?

Is that the same thing as being shot in the fracas?

One thing is for sure...

If you live like a savage beast, you'll probably meet your end that way as well.
