    Exactly what happened? We as neighbors deserve to know.

    I was good friends with the guy that got killed. His family doesn’t even know the entirety of what happened yet. I hope WWAY will stay with the story. The shooter is claiming self defense. I have no idea how the situation unfolded but I know my friend didn’t own a gun and wasn’t naturally a violent person. Hopefully the police will take investigation seriously and all the facts will come to light.
