It's all over the news this a.m....but no info online that I can find. It was in Millbrook Park. We are new to the area, but were told this "doesn't usually happen in these parks...more often in Pennypacker and/or Buckingham." Local reports this a.m. stated 2 18 year old boys were shot, and one is confirmed dead....anyone have any info? Did they ever catch the shooter? We had search copters with flood lights over us till around 1 a.m.

yes they caught all of them the same night and they were the boy that is reported dead friends especially the juvenile. He was Lavonne's right hand and he killed him. I grew up with all of these suspects and this is a shock and horrifying

This just shows that you can't trust not even ya bestfriend let alone the people you grew up with. Lavonne was a friend to alot of people, even the six suspects and we still cant understand what did Lavonne and is brother do that was so serious for him to be killed by the people that he grew up with especially his bestfriend. I know them all for years and this is still unbelievable.

I pray that God will have mercy on those kids. The fact that they were 18 to 23, they are still kids. We as a people need to take back what the devil has stolen from us and that's our youth. If anyone wants to make a difference, get involved with the community. There are so many ways. These kids don't have any direction. Most of the parents work and don't really have time for them, or they are to busy. GET INVOLVED!!!!! You have 1. Stop and Drop Your Gun which is located on 130 in Willingboro, 2. You have Christ Community Evangelistic Church (community based) ect.... GET INVOLVED! It's time to take back what the devil has stolen from us. God Bless Mrs. Atkins and Big E, I Love yaw! RIP Yelloe Boy

It is devasting about the shootings...My sympathy to the Families. After living in Willingboro for ten years, I feel it is time for the parents, and young adults, to STEP UP!!!, and take this comunity back to where it was. There is no reason why, a beautiful comunity is being destroyed, and no one sees it

what we have to look at is, these kids were american made. we live in a culture that takes us away from our true purpose, leaving us confused. we have been programmed to focus all our attention on powering the most powerful business in the world, u.s.a.. we are not in tune with nature and our surrounding, we are off balance. wake up and see where the the problems starts, it is because of the program we use for survival, we have lost our true culture. these kids that took these lives were soldiers, taken out by the enemy because of false spiritual guidance, due to there country. our families talk to us listen to them. black people rise
