  1. ‘Accidental shooting’ ‘home invasion’ ‘self defense’ it all translates to DRUG RIP in those scumbag filled apartments. That place is loaded with all kinds of gangsters, drug dealers/addicts and dirtbags. Has been for years. Believe it or not, its actually gotten alot better last few years. Hope no real people were hurt in this incident.

    1. An innocent man was shot sitting on his porch smoking cigs and drinking coffee I was told he was I surgery the bullet excited. Hopefully all works out for him and his wife.

  2. House hate to break your heart ( if ypu have one ) reality check those “gangsters, drug dealer/addicts, dirt bags ” are real people like it or not.

  3. House, those people have bone, flesh, blood, skin. That makes people. I didn’t say they weren’t STUPID. As illustrated by update Mr. Harry Gordon, Jr. must not have been a gangster, drug dealer/addict or dirtbag. Some people have to live where they can afford to pay the rent – it’s a shame but a fact. My prayers go out to Mr. and Mrs. Gordon. I truly hope the best for his recovery and I hope his wife has someone who can be there for her now. There must be 1 or 2 good neighbors/friends/churchmembers who can offer support and comfort now. Those who know the STUPID SHOOTER and friends need to step up.

  4. To all of you making comments on something you know nothing of is a joke. Mr Gordon is my neighbor and a wonderful drug free man!!! He was an innocent victim of gun violence!! It had nothing to do with drugs or a home invasion!! Unfortunately for the people who live here most of them that bring the violence don’t even live here. Instead please pray for Mr. Gordon and his wife.
