  2. How come there have been so many gun-related incidents in Brentwood. The kid shoots himself in the leg in front of the bowling alley. Now some old fart gets into a road rage altercation with someone? What gives?

  3. “Nearly missed”? I would not comment if this was what a witness report but ECT missed this incorrect fact. The words mean he was hit but not injured.
