Diversity strikes again. Families having meals and Tyrone and his buddies decide shooting people would be a good idea. Let's hope all of those involved find themselves at the wrong end of a gun so we can be rid of them. Useless scum wasting the air we breath. The police should be able to shoot them on sight.

It is people like that make the world what it is. Yes this men were wrong and should be punished serverely. But you know nothing about the circumstances around the incident you just know some people were shooting in a public place. You are the type that believe police voilence is always justified. You seem like a racist bigot. So if you shoot someone in self defense you should be shot right. Save your useless racist unintelliegent comments for yourself. And you are wasting good air that someone else could be using.

I have lived in the Hampton Roads area for 3 years and have been shocked and appalled since arriving here at the number of shootings in the area that involve young people. It is no wonder though. The public education system in this area leaves a great deal to be desired. Young people never seem to taught that education is the key to success. The typical way of life down here for far too many young people is to pick up a gun and shoot. Wake up VIRGINIA!! Enforce better gun laws and improve your education systems.

Ignorance ... good name for you. Does your statement "... you know nothing about the circumstances around the incident you just know some people were shooting in a public place" suggest that a shooting in a public place might have been justified?

My only regret is these four weren't better shots. Then, we could celebrate four thugs permanently off the streets.

Jesus Christ! I can't believe that anyone would have the audacity to even suggest that a shootout between thugs at a drive in is justified. What could possibly be the excuse for such miscreants to fill the air with lead around kids and people going about their business. You are the kind of people who make the world what it is!

Stunned! What makes young people think that the only solution to a problem is pulling out a gun and killing someone. This place is very public. Was any consideration given to the fact that innocent people could have been killed. Grow up. Stop letting your anger control you. Find something constructive to do before you end up in jail for life or in a grave. This is a prime example of not caring about life. There is nothing that should warrent grown men acting like they are living in the days of the wild, wild west.

I guess since they are closing down bars and night clubs in Hampton and Newport News for shootings and such happening outside the places, they probably should close down this Sonic, before other people get hurt,

This is just stupid!! You roll up to the Sonic for a Coney Island Footlong Combo and end up with holes in bodies, human and cars because someone insist on being a thug.

For TIRED OF IGNORANCE, no one mentioned race. There have been no racial comments, and by the grace of God there won't be any. These guys are just plain old thugs.

Seriously? The trailer trash over here at least know the name of cities and counties within five miles of our houses (it's Isle of WIGHT, named for the English island, not the brothers who mastered fixed-wing flight 300 years AFTER the county was named).

I really hope this doesn't become anything resembling regular at Eagle Harbor or in Carrollton. There's really no excuse, no way for anyone to justify this as anything but stupid. Hampton just had its 5th homicide of the year and according to the Daily Press "crime database," nine homicides in Newport News in the first six months of this year (one of them apparently in the middle of the South Atlantic by some computer glitch). Get these kids in church.

if you compare hampton roads to other cities you will find that gun violence, murder and all of the other ills are minute in comparison. secondly, virginia as a state, is i believe either the best, or the second best in the entire country.

Perhaps some LEGALLY armed citizens may have been able to prevent this MURDER and ATTEMPTED MURDER if our gun laws were not so restrictive.

Please remember that the shooters were CRIMINALS who had guns ILLEGALLY.

Illegal guns kill - legal guns protect.

May god bless these young men and thier families.
