The helicopters and police were all over Wellesley Park. Was this connected to the shootings on Dot Ave or something else?

Very good

The city just saved itself many millions in emergency medical care and incarceration costs, not to mention potentially a life or two if that upstanding young fella got out early on good behavior. Let's hope the other one puts his gun to a good use and blows his head off when the swat team shows up at his door.
