My heart goes out to the victim's friends and family. Such a terrible tragedy with no real explanation and such a young person who was taken away. I don't know all the circumstances but I hope that justice is swift and thorough. I hope the parents can find some peace and live on. I don't know how I ever could...

Just saw the video, the written script was much more informative. The video proves that a Police car showed up... Honestly. YOU FAIL!!!

Thats it? You honestly call yourselves a News station? How embarrassed is your Gen. Mgr. right now, and if he's not embarrassed remind him that there are other opportunities out there. Okay, black car- gun -boom. Got it... How about Hmmmm... a description perhaps? direction of travel after the incident? Was the shooter an Albino Midget with pink hair? Did this happen during your lunch hour?
