WHAT THE FREAK..was she doing out at THAT hour?? Yes, it's sad when a young life is taken..But as I said..WHY was she even up that hour..

Chick, you are making some assumptions that she was out at that hour? I didn't know her but have talked with some who did know her. They tell me she was a wonderful young lady who was on track for a very successful life.

The loss of any life is tragic, but one so young even more so.

Had her life not been taken at such an early age, what contributions would she have made to society?

My thoughts and prayers to out to her, her family and friends, and everyone who will be involve in this incident. Gettysburg is a very small town, and thankfully things like this don't happen often. When they do the entire community is affected.

As for why she was out so late/early is irrelevant! That nice girl did not deserve to be shot and killed!

Everytime i was at Dollar General and she was working, she was nice. Always asking about my tatts.:)

Her family is definately in my thoughts.

Just random acts of senseless!

Gettysburg is fastly becoming the violent crime capital of Pennsylvania.

I haven't been to G'burg for several years now but that area used to be high in drugs and crime. Not sure about the present though. May she rest in peace.

The Rock says that tourists should steer clear of Gettysburg in the future. Antietam is a much safer battlefield for tourism these days.

Strange how all the Cheerleading Locals are DEAD silent about this.

Gettysburg has a MAJOR gang and violent crime problem.

Shootings galore, arson, a man was set on fire for Christ's f'ing sake, robberies, gangs...

It is quickly becoming the murder capital of the US, per capita.

It is VERY dangerous, this is plainly obvious to anyone who can read a newspaper.
The locals will continue to claim that this is all blown out of proportion.
Tell that to the dead people's families and to the living victims of this violent crime wave.
Actually out of respect for the victim I do not think it is appropriate to bring your petty issues with Gettysburg and its residents into play here. Sorry you don't feel the same way.

All in all the crime rate in Gettysburg and Adams County will compare favorably against the national average. If that is claiming your crazy posts of doom are blown out of proportion then I am guilty of that.

There were NO murders, robberies or arsons in MY town.

It sounds like you are angry and frustrated about all the crime in Gettysburg.

You are powerless to stop it.

You never thought it would get this bad.

You are heavily invested in the status quo there, so choke on the way YOU wanted things to be.

You wanted it, you got it!

Out of respect for the victim I think you should pull your head out of your rectum and admit that it is FLAT OUT DANGEROUS in Gettysburg.

Never said that and never saw anyone else say it either. I can go back many years and NOT find a year without a crime of this nature so why would I claim it? You are making things up.

Nope.

Yeah, I pretty much am powerless to stop it as is anyone else anywhere.

True, I am surprised two crimes of this nature happened so close together.

I am not invested in the status-quo here at all. I have always wanted things to change for the better. My way just evidently just differed from yours and you can't deal with that. So sorry.

I never wanted it. Please show me where I did.

It is less dangerous in Gettysburg than a heck of a lot of other U.S. cities and towns. Don't believe it? Go look at some stats.

Be quiet. You should be more concerned about your own physical safety than to be on here spewing lies about how great it is in Gettysburg.

It's not great, it is flat-out dangerous.

No amount of cheerleading by you or any of the strangely SILENT locals can change this FACT.

No.

No cheer leading here either. Just calling you a liar. We are all weary to one extent or another with your craziness.

Go back on standby, you just want to silence any discussion of the violent crime that has taken over Gettysburg.

A simple Google search will reveal all the people up in arms about the crime wave.

Crime hasn't taken over in Gettysburg. As a matter of fact,your chances of being assaulted or having your car stolen are greater in Norwood than in Gettysburg.

Looks like everyone from outside the area was right about Gettysburg's sickening crime problem.
I guess that means that the locals are dumb and wrong about everything!
"Everyone" would constitute over 300 million people in the United States alone. A gaggle of idiots hardly counts as "everyone".

Ya know, when I posted my comment..I did forget to mention how tragic this must be for this young woman's family and friends. I did not mean to be callous in my comment, it's just that..honestly..like my folks used to say.."What can you do at that hour, that ya can't do at an earlier hour"? I do apologize, did not mean to offend anyone.

Is there crime in Gettysburg? Of course there is, people live here, and anyplace you have people you have crime.

Is crime increasing in Gettysburg? Again people live here and where there are people, there is crime, and every community is having an increase in crime, so Gettysburg is no different from any other location.

Yes regretfully there have been two violent crimes in the past two months.

I still say look at the crime statistics and you will find that Gettysburg is well below the national statistics and state statistics.

I have lived here for most of my 65 years and thankfully I have never been the victim of a crime, but yes I know people who have been. But please show me one community that is crime free. I don’t believe you can do that can you?

Although both incidents are very tragic, and everyone in the area regrets that these things happened, you people are blowing things way out of proportion. Gettysburg is still one of the safest communities in the state and in the country, and I would not live anyplace else.

Prove your so-called dream that Gettysburg has a crime problem, by the way shooter turned himself in. Here is something that will crush that dream of yours, shooter was not in a gang. Oh, that hurt to find out the shooter was just Joe Q. Public. Please get out of your parents basement and in to reality. I would say back to reality, But.....
