I walked into this shooting. Five shots at eye level. It seems like things are getting worse. Drug dealing is beginning to saturate Fitchburg again. Gangs are tagging and fighting in the area. Domestic violence is everywhere.
I spoke to all the neighbors tonight. Everyone is fed up with what is going on.
A bullet landed in the window sill of a family of four as their kids ran upstairs to the other family during the shooting.
I will tell you that I believe that the black truck that has been stalking me were parked with lights on during and after the shooting as he had to see the shooter. That truck circled the neighborhood five times before the shooting. If the blue light does have a camera then the shooter will be caught.
All the neighbors are irate! We need to curb this violence before it takes over Fitchburg.

What are you talking about? Once that news broke I cried. I am still upset everytime the incident is reported. That is the worst thing that has happened in America. My heart and prayers go out to all those families. I cannot even imagine the pain, God Bless them all and may God send an army of guardian angels down upon the victims family to assist them and guide them as they deal with this horrible,horrible tragedy.
We must change these laws. There are guns everywhere as anyone and everyone can walk to an available gun. This is insane as pro gun advocates are sick people.
Another issue which we must look into is this anti-social behavior that is developing and becomming wide spread amoungst our children. The internet and video games has become the only outlet for these kids.
Add in a mental disorder and there is trouble and /or danger. There are three people with this disorder that live together on my street. They seem to be OK human beings but there is an obvious serious mental health issue going on.
The tragedy that just took place in Conneticut could take place anywhere. To be quit frank I believe that Fitchburg and/or Worcester has been on the verge of such a horrific tragedy. They are outof control in Worcester to the point that itmust be address possibly with national guardsmen and others.
The shooting that took place on Cedar street is just the beginning as Fitchburg is becomming a twisted mess. One of the bullets hit the window sill where two young children live.Already the children in this building do not play outside any longer due to this fear which became reality yesterday.

How dare you to post this as the nation mourns !
What are you? Demented? Stop thinking about yourself for a change! You should only be giving your condolences on these boards for the Connecticut families.
And you wonder why you are not the Mayor ! This is very disturbing !

The CT shooter used his mother's guns. No legislation will prevent that. Criminals and crazy people seem to always be able to find weapons.

Lynch, if you walked into this shooting then who the hell was it? Was he/she white/black/Hispanic? How tall? And 5 shots at eye level, how the hell do you know they were at eye level? And if that "black truck" really drove through your neighborhood 5 times before the shooting, did you NOT get the tag number? I mean for you to say 5 times you must have been paying attention, NO? You sound like a witness to this crime. Did you report what you saw to the police or is this just gangster talk? Heck, I'm not even in law enforcement and know a witness when I see one. Did the cops take your statement?
This could be your ticket to the Mayors office Lynch. Did you know that Mylott, the Mayor before Wong actually solved a crime before he got elected? Voters ate it up. You should seriously consider taking advantage of this incident. It could actually help get you elected.

Maybe he used his Matrix like speed to dodge the bullets? Lynch is a funny guy. He complains about all the criminals in Fitchburg but he doesn't have to go far to find one, he could just look in a mirror.

I love reading any post by Lynch. He complains there are criminals and people with mental disorders living on his street? That's some funny shit.

I was watching and I was 20 ft from the shooting victims. I have survielance cameras that monitor the area around our home. I can not get the license plate from the cameras due to the angle.
I will tell you that this guy in the truck was parked with lights on during and after the shooting,he was five to ten feet from the shooter. This particular truck we had questions on whether he was stalking our house as he did keep looking at the victims house.I believe that the state police talked to the truck driver.
At the time of the shooting I was heading to the front yard from the back. This shooting is a big deal as bullets landed by this family's window besides the one that went into the victim. It sounded like a 9mm.
I could tell by the sounds/flash direction that he was firering eye level as oppossed to in the air. I have been shot at three different times as I know.I grew up in Boston at the most violent time.One time was a viet namese guy after my friend told them not to shoot their guns in our neighborhood, I went to get his dumb ass outof their when another viet namese guy came running out with his pistol and began shooting atus as I could hear the bullets hissing by my ear.Another time a whack job was driving around our neighborhood and had called us kids over to his car,we couldn'tunderstand what he was saying and got closer then he brought up his arm with a pistol and took acouple shots at us,we ducked behind cars. Then another time wason washington street in dorchester. I was driving by when this 6.5 gangster guy began shooting across the street as he ran forward,I just ducked down and hit the gas pedal. Gun shots were and are still common in boston.
I have fired many guns, 22, 25, 38, 357, shotguns and a 30 odd 6 which was powerful.I have heard many many gunshots and being very close out side you know at what level bullets are flying and then the proof of the bullets found in the first floor window sill and one in the guys side tells the rest.
I have suspects in mind which may surprise you.I believe there is a fued and some involved in the drug battles would surprise you. There is a lot of money involved.
I actually think the police thought it might of been me as they checked my yard for casings.Stamos,do you think it was me?
I believe the shooting was the beginning of a series of shootings.There is a battle on going as a lot of money is involved in Fitchburgs' drug trade.
The problem here is that innocent kids were close to where the bullets hit as they went running, crying upstairs to get away.We have elders,children, veterans, students and familys' in direct line of these idiots'bullets. Things have been escalating.
The grafitti that I mention on here that ison the dorm building is a gang tag. It is a picture of a gun/cannon,it is a D-block symbol of violence pending.
These are serious issues that need to be addressed.We need a ward 5 meeting asap. I will pass out the flyers.Not far from this grafitti they have been tagging LK for "Latin Kings". Then there are the drug dealing gangs.We need a gang unit in Fitchburg
