Does any one know who was shot? I was told it was a local Dr. but am not sure which one because there is a doctor and a dentist with the same last name here in town -- the one I heard was Dr. Nix (not the dentist) with an office in Galleria Oaks. I dont know for sure because this town is a rumor mill but I do really need to know, if anyone has info I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

So It was the dentist and not the doctor located in Galleria Oaks?

oh - ok - thanks for the info - I was told it was Dr Nix at Galleria Oaks Family Medical Center(not the dentist) but guess it is the other way around - that is really sad - my heart goes out to his family.

I didn't care for Nix as a dentist, but I sure am sorry to hear this. Sounds as if there is an eye witness, or someone close by who saw someone suspicious. No one is safe anymore.

I believe someone was robbed at that same car wash just a few days earlier. A person can't even wash their car in this town anymore without being attacked by scum.

My brother heard the gunshot at about 10pm and after seeing a police car at the carwash a few minutes later, walked through the field across the street from the carwash to see what was going on. Naturally, he was questioned by the police immediately. He hung around for a while to see what was happening....at this time, there was no description of the shooter....but while there, a black man in his 20's or so wandered by with black pants and no shirt on, and apparently oblivious or uninterested in all the cop cars (odd), with his head down.....headed down Potomac, which is also where the K9 dogs led police to....could this have been the shooter coming back by to see if the victim was dead or not?? They say lots of perps return to the scene of the crime. My brother also happens to know Dr. Nix and his wife personally, so he called Darla today when he head the news. Dr. Nix was on his way home from their farm on Hwy. 82 and stopped at the carwash to wash the mud off his truck. Whoever shot him did not take any personal belongings from him....he still had his cell phone, wallet, chain saw and shot gun in the truck. Now we are wondering if the shooter was on foot and perhaps lives in the neighbor or very close by....perhaps Sussex Downs or New Town, if not Glenwood.

I do believe we can place just a little more trust in what GW has to post than one of the editors who is no longer posting.

Or is he?

Just the facts mam!

If GW says that he encountered a duck dipping snuff, you need to check under his wing for a can of Levi Garrett. ;-)

Seriously, that's great to hear. Hope the perp is "fried as an adult".

RIP, Dr. Nix. May God bless the family and friends.

Was the teen that confessed living near Spring Lake Park? There were several police cars back at a problem home over there along with a crime scene unit yesterday. I would like to know why. Those thugs broke into my home last year and only one was arrested after several others suffered burglaries. The youngest thug is about 15 and definitely prison material. The whole family is trouble. Good neighborhood ecept for them really. Worst part....the landlord could care less what a threat to the neighbors that his tenants are. I would never use ArkLaTex Restoration because of how he manages this rental property and the hugs he allows to be harbored there!

Alright then. I guess it must be true then.
My only question is- why hasn't it been in the paper? The police dept would have it in there to put the town at ease a little.
