What number is this homicide for 2018? Everyone should use caution if they are sitting in their car, even if it's in your own driveway. People sitting in cars are often considered shooting targets. This is f'd up people!!

I don't know if your trying to make a poor attempt at humor or just being a sarcastic bastard, either way your comment was very childish and foolish. For 1 people get shot be it in cars or on foot. if you have a smart phone or tv you would clearly know and understand that. Look what just happened in Vegas last year! how many gang bangers sitting in cars got shot in killed that day??? Oh ...like I thought! Smfh

Let the media and law enforcement officials continue to make you feel safe and secure by reporting all of these shootings as targeted/gang-involved. There are many innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire. Hopefully, you’re never stuck in your car during a gun battle that you were neither invited to nor hosting.

"Ian had a wonderful spirit that radiated through the class along with a keen intellect and a great sense of humor. I remember he used to come by USES every Thanksgiving season to help give out turkeys to the seniors." ~ A former teacher
