  1. lol @Kelly. Yeah….its a great neighborhood. Million dollar homes, old money. Everyone is generally so friendly, willing to help each other out. Block parties every third Friday. The shooters must have been tourists. Or lost. Took a wrong car. The neighborhood is just sickened over this nonsense.

    No, the area isn’t and never has been in my 36 years a good one. Shootings are a normal occurrence and we no longer play the “was it fireworks or gunshots” game. Its gunshots.
