    Helicopters overhead in the neighborhood. They are triangulated over Ashmont Hill. Must be looking for the shooter.

    It's probably news copters getting some footage for a story about the shooting.

    I bet there are a bunch of witnesses, fingers crossed! It takes so much time to get through that intersection at that time of day. I don't understand how the other car got away so fast. But, if bullets were flying I'm sure people didn't stay too close.

    Something that became worse than not funny after we learned the victim had died.

    The comment was up long enough to Garner several replies, so I wanted to let those folks know why their comments had disappeared as well (the way the software I use works is that when you delete a comment, any replies to it get deleted as well).
