    Seriously? Shots fired in Lx Park is considered news?

    People there don’t usually even raise eyebrows to that anymore!

    That’s like hearing music when cars go by.

      must have been a boring night.

      Right, it happened at 3:25am, long after all the working folks have fled from the area. Just a normal evening in the LPC!!!

        Yeah because anybody who has the slightest bit of sense wouldn’t be caught dead or alive out there that time of morning/night or at all for that matter.

    Gun Addiction is a true health problem

      Hair of the dog is the answer.

      Hand out guns to every citizen showing sense enough to use it responsibly.

      Like the liquor ads asking you to buy and drink – but just do it “responsibly”.

      Same here. Have a gun. But shoot responsibly.

    I’m sure the residents had no idea who the hoodlums were.

    Good old LP! A great neighborhood and a wonderful place to bring up the family. You will walk through the streets with urban tumbleweed everywhere. The glorious sight of unemployed sitting on the corner at 9 am smoking a Philly blunt and drinking a beer from a paper bag. You’ll go to sleep at night with the soothing sounds of automatic gunfire. Ah yes, Lexington Park! America’s town.

        I agree. Lexington Park is not America’s town.

      It’s the Democrats vision of Utopia. It fits in with open borders, infantacide and free stuff for everyone!

    Glad the Police are Encrypted, this prevented the shots from being fired, good job Americas First Sheriff, glad we found out about it 30 hours too late to take notice.

    Was it a police shooting a brother? Why do they come into our neighboarhoods. We can deal with our own problems
