Any update?

A little concerning we haven’t heard from police if this was random or targeted...I live in the area, so this has us on edge a little bit. Walk by there everyday.

Very safe assumption that it was targeted. The police have indicated this. Reports indicate people heard arguing beforehand. Very little violence is totally random, though the double murder in JP a couple months ago seemed to be.
