This unfortunate incident occured on a street where children were playing and birthday party's were going on! This man should be sent to prison for his horrible attempt on the other mans life. He had complete disreguard for his 4 kids and any other children that were on the street. He and his family should move back to Mississippi.

This entire family was a ticking time bomb at anytime ready to explode. If you think the man is bad, you should meet his CRAZY with a capitol C Wife. The kids should be placed into foster care and the wife locked up right beside him. Take care Roseville, sorry you will not be missed.

Let me start off by saying if you think this was self defense you are so so wrong. The shooter and his family moved in 3 years ago and it has been nothing but drama ever since. This man has a violent temper who beats his wife and the children. The police have been called to Coolidge St. more in 3 years than the 10 years I've lived here thats for sure. This man has been jailed not only for beating up on his wife but for physically fighting with the roseville police many of times. She may not mind having her butt beat but us neighbors do mind because our children not only DO NOT need to see this but nor do they need to hear the fighting between them at all hours of the day and night. I have witnessed on more than 6 occassions this man threaten several other neighbors. Especially our neighbor at the end of the block that ended up shot over the weekend and is fighting for his life. This man would stop in front of his house every single day with children outside playing and yell profanity and threaten to kill him. Well its obvious it was a threat that he went through with. This family has made and lost friends on our block so fast its unreal. Even the children have made and lost friends due to their parents. We have been doing nothing but praying that they leave our neighborhood as soon as possiable. We are praying for our dear friend Neil who did not deserve this. Neil and his family befriended this family after they went through the block and this is the thanks that he gets. Shot and fighting for his life. This inconsiderate man who had no regard to his children, wife or any other children playing outside that day better rot in jail for the rest of his life. And the rest of the family needs to get out of here we don't want you. LEAVE!!! YOUR WELCOME HAS BEEN OVER STAYED.

MAYBE IF YOU HEARD ALL OF THE STORIES YOU WOULD KNOW WHY HE DID IT. YOU DON'T GO WERE YOU DON'T BELONG. HE HAD NO REASON TO BE BY THIS HOME. BUT I DON'T THINK YOU SHOULD PULL A GUN ON SOMEONE. I THINK YOU SHOULD ALL MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS AND QUIET MAKING UP STORIES

Hey peeps,
After reading your post I can tell you went to school in Detroit, why donít you go back and finish the third grade, you write like a moron and you think like a moron. In the suburbs you can walk by a house without worrying about getting shot, it is people like you that have destroyed Detroit and now are moving out of that hell hole to do the same in the suburbs. Why donít you round up all your ghetto peeps and move back to Detroit where you can live like a wild beast in the hood. I think the only person who doesnít belong is you.

Hey peeps,
Maybe if you would have minded your own dam business this never would have happened! I hope John rots in jail for what he did! It's so sad that someone got shot over this. I do feel sorry for your children. Do you realize that your children are very messed up by seeing all this violence in their home. I think your entire family needs to go to councling. Shame on you and John for letting this get so out of control. If you had any common sense, you would move and start a new life where people don't despise you so much.

..i did not see anything that would tell me he did not finish the third grade...but your reply seemed to be the normal topix one, unfounded. Condolences to the families and to u morons always telling someone to go back somewhere. You guys always seem to change your tune to fit whatever you're talking about.

I WITNESSED IT ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS AND I DON'T SPEAK TO EITHER FAMILIES.MIND MY OWN BUSINESS THIS HAPPEND ON MY STREET WHERE MY CHILDREN PLAY AND COULD HAVE BEEN RIGHT THERE WHEN THIS IDIOT SHOT THIS MAN. AS A MATTER OF FACT THEY WERE OUTSIDE BUT THANKFULLY NOT RIGHT THERE.THAT MAN HAD NO REGARD TO HIS FAMILY NOR ANYONE ELSES SO THIS IS THE WHOLE BLOCKS BUSINESS. MOVE OUT YOUR NOT WANTED.

The ghetto trash went into the street with A shotgun and blew A hole in the man's stomach. The man was NOT armed. This sick S.O.B. should be put to sleep like A rabid dog.

Give up your kids to a family that will take care of them. Love them. I hope John rots in hell. Mom will keep her mouth shut now that she don't have her old man to hide behide. I heard that they can't go back to Mississippi. WHY? What did you do there? JUST FALL OFF THE EARTH!!!!!!

Who are you going to hide behide now that the s.o.b. is locked up? You will keep your mouth shut now. Why can't you go back to Mississippi? You can't why? What did you do there? I hope he rots in hell where he belongs. The kids would be better off with another family. One that will give the kids lots of love, care, rules, and the right upbring. I really feel sad for them. And for the mom, DROP OFF THE EARTH!!!! JUST LEAVE MICHIGAN!!

I personally know this family very well!Say what you want about the "Mississippi trash". She is my sister in Christ!!!!! If any of you truly cared for their children...you would stop pointing your finger and extend a hand to help!!!How do any of you really know what happened that day or any other day in their lives for that matter.If there truly was abuse to those children or their mother shame on you for not doing your "civil" duty.You claim to be so much better than that family.However, according to your allegations you sat back and let innocent children be abused.How about you stop harassing this woman and her children.How about you stop punishing this woman and her children for an crime that they did not committ.As for returning to Mississippi or falling off of the earth.....WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU!!

I pray that if my children and I are ever in danger my husband will rise up and defend his family!I pray that if any of you are ever in fear for your life someone will defend you as well!!!!!! Don't go to another mans house with 2 other large,burly, dangerous looking men and not expect a father & husband to defend his family!!!John is in prison and God has seen that he receives the proper sentence!ONLY GOD KNOWS AND CAN JUDGE!!!! Who are we to question God?????????
