        Facts? It was a question.

      • Jim Bob on January 8, 2018 at 9:43 am

        It was question, not a statement. Would you like to share your thoughts? It sounds like you have information the police would be interested to hear.

      I have to agree! None of us no the circumstances so why assume it was a drug deal?

    • Mr. Rodgers on January 5, 2018 at 10:11 am

      That’s right cauz they be good boyz, just another wonderful day in the hood.

    • Al Sharpie on January 5, 2018 at 10:15 am

      Yes, there must have been a justified reason for the shooting. Why else would the suspect flee?

    • Willie on January 5, 2018 at 2:03 pm

      Give us the full story so we will stop judging.

    • The Math Teacher on January 5, 2018 at 8:13 pm

      It’s called statistics.

    • Publius on January 5, 2018 at 8:48 pm

      Don’t judge? You don’t need a trial by jury to figure-out some of this one. When one man intentionally shoots another man, you know at least ONE of the men is not a good man. Odds are, both men are guilty of bad choices.

    • Anonymous on January 5, 2018 at 8:48 pm

      Maybe not, but i bet a million bucks the “victim” has a decent criminal record, no doubt.

      Oh man. Give us the circumstances to what could have possibly justified this. I’ll wait.

    • Upsetter on January 6, 2018 at 10:14 am

      Please Don’t judge? In Saint Mary’s County? Psh…. Thats like telling a dog not to bark. Stone throwin is the county past-time here. People get off on it… hard. People got nothing better to do.

    • Whatever on January 8, 2018 at 7:39 am

      We know the circumstances, one scumbag shot another useless scumbag. Guess you can justify this shooting? If you know so much, be a good citizen and step forward. Other than that, shut your ghetto pie hole up

    • Shaq'qwandre on January 8, 2018 at 7:55 am

      Second of all, there arent circumstances that justify the constant gun violence from the black community

    My God, when will African American on African American crime stop? What the heck has this county come to? It is nothing short of little SE DC….Black or white, Latino, Asian or otherwise…. When do we take back our city/county? See something, say something. I am sick of watching this once quaint little city become little DC. A lot of people moved here to get away from these thugs, but they seem to leave a slimy trail like nasty slugs.

    • Ray Simmons on January 8, 2018 at 9:32 am

      It’s what they do. They just need to step it up and totally eliminate themselves. Violent crime would drop by at least 85 percent.

      So what about the White on White Crime that happens all the time down here???/

  6. Nick on January 4, 2018 at 7:07 pm

    I am continually amazed at how easy it is for people to shoot someone.
    Damn shame how this country has gone to hell.

    Thankful for first responders.

  14. Teresa on January 5, 2018 at 3:47 pm

    Until you know the facts about a situation keep your opinions to yourselves. This young man works for my company and he was at thatlocation to buy a car! He had gotten an advance on his pay from ME the day before to do so. So dont assume because hes black and got shot it had to do with drugs!! Get your facts straight before you judge!!!

    • Saw it on January 8, 2018 at 9:31 am

      The victim was sitting in a white car with the car running, the shooter walked up to the window, shot him through the window and ran …

    • Dr. ??? on January 8, 2018 at 12:18 pm

      “…he was at thatlocation to buy a car!…”

      Or was he?…

    • Jim Bob on January 9, 2018 at 5:45 am

      During the middle of a snow storm? Wasn’t the general populas advised to stay off the roads? My original statement said “Drug deal gone bad?” This was based upon the location, not the race. Great Mills Road is a known breeding ground for unlawful behavior (for ALL races). Also, who conducts any normal business during the middle of a snowstorm? Pull your head out of the ground Teresa.

      • Anonymous on January 9, 2018 at 11:39 am

        “Who conducts any normal business during the middle of a snowstorm?” Uhh..let’s think about that for a minute (keyword: “THINK”)…People who need to get food, do laundry, go to work, salt parking lots and/or shovel snow, plowing snow, get back from work and a plethora of other legitimate and necessary reasons.

        I’ve been out in plenty of snowstorms in this area and not once did it have anything to do with illegal business. In most cases, I was going through the square to get food before the storm gets too bad. Everybody who travels along Great Mills road (on foot, bicycle or motor vehicle) isn’t automatically a drug addicted convicted felon like your one-track presumptuous mind would have you believe. How much sense does it really take to figure out simple things like that?

    • Anonymous on January 9, 2018 at 9:32 am

      You might want to give your employee a drug test next time he comes to work. I am not saying your story is BS but the timing of the transaction and the facts they already posted seem to be in favor of either a guy running around randomly shooting innocent people or a deal gone bad. If he was there to purchase a car they would have put that in the police statement.

  15. Dope Hater on January 6, 2018 at 9:41 am

    Simply assuming this person is a true victim suffering a gunshot wound, and the two rescue workers are struggling to pull the gurney through the snow to get the victim to the transport for emergency care, and seeing the photo and video gained by whoever took the video and photos, to post on this news page makes me sick.

    Help or get the F”k out of the way.

    Is that the new Jordan sneakers he’s wearing? If so, there’s the answer. Some black kid was murdered the other week for the exact same reason.

    • Mr Reality on January 8, 2018 at 12:12 pm

      If I was already a VERY rich man, and had my own shoe line…that I knew people were being maimed & killed over…I would price my shoes lower & FLOOD the market with them (make them more affordable to minimize the violence). Make up that profit in sales volume vice profit per sale. But then again, I have a conscience that I am able to sleep with.
