I worked at a c-store/gas station for a number of years. It's not a easy job. Always fear someone was going to rob and shot you.

Well 7-11 which is a little less than a mile down the road was robbed last night. The Shell station on 28th near the highway was robbed. Last year the kids that robbed that Circle K? store and shot at the police stored their gun in our bushes here at Arbor Lake. This is a not a good sign. Not to mention I was in Speedway twenty minutes before this unfolded. Good times!

Did the victim work there? Was the shooting a confrontation between consumers? Did the cops shoot him? Robbery?

When we drove by after washing my car at GooGoo auto wash there was a body laying in front of the doors covered by a yellow tarp. The ambulance didn't arrive till at least 20 minutes after we saw WPD speed down 28th. I wonder if that's a good or bad sign?

From what we could see, the victim did not appear to be an employee.

Of course WZZM13 has the details before News 8...as always.

Wyoming, Mich.(WZZM)- Wyoming Police say one man was shot at the Speedway gas station at 28th Street and Byron Center.

Wyoming Police Sergeant Dan Buikema says two groups of four men started arguing inside the building. When they moved outside, a fist fight started.

One of the men then took out a gun and fired several shots. A man in the other group, in his 20's, was hit. The suspect and the rest of his group got away.

The victim was taken to the hospital. No word on his condition, but Sgt. Buikema says he was conscious when he was put in the ambulance.

Two of the men with the victim have spoken with police. They say this was not a gang related incident.

Sgt. Buikema says the argument in the Speedway stemmed from a previous altercation that happened at Julian's 2, a restaurant on Division Avenue.

Police say they do know the names of the men they are looking for.

No one else was hurt. Police say the shooting happened during a pretty busy time for the gas station.

Police barricaded the area while they investigated.

What i would like to know with all these guns and shootings if these shootings are by people with registered guns. I know the wacko in alabama did have some of his guns registered.. I bet you at least half of the shooting in this nation are by people with registered guns.

Wait till the 18 y/o pot smokers and druggies and alcoholics are all packing heat, legally i might add.And we think we have a problem now!

It's getting really scary out there. I actually looked into a CCW the other day. If I had the resources, I would move far,far away. Out into the boonies as far as I could.

We need a taller fence at the border. Or, just shoot them as they come across.

"Or, just shoot them as they come across."

You'd get sued for violating their "civil rights" like they did to that rancher in Arizona.
He didn't even shoot them, just held them at gunpoint until Border Patrol got there.
It's going to be a mess when Mexico collapses.
