This is a terribly written article. I read the whole thing - twice - and I THINK there was a shooting yesterday, somewhere IVO Rio Mills Rd. The article clearly assumes the reader has some prior knowledge of the events, which, in my case, I do not. Even when publishing updates about an event, it's still important to restate the main facts. Shabby journalism. I guess I'll have to find out what happened elsewhere.

unless you are family or police, you probably know as much as you need to know. This is hardly a matter for cheap public entertainment.

This may be a dumb question. But, is it right to assume. Nobody know's what they were fighting about to begin with? or maybe if they already had confrontations before? I know its "noone's business" or whatever. But I am just curious.
just wondering

The NBC web site is for those who follow local news here on a daily basis. It's not for somebody who drops in once a month and comes in on the tail end of a hot developing story.

It's an easy story to follow. One man comes to another man's house and shoots him. The wife hears the gunshot and walks out to the garage where the shooting took place. The shooter tells her to get lost real quick if she knows what's good for her. She does, and calls police.

The exact reason for the shooting may never be known unless the shooter left a note somewhere or the police discover and release this information.

The sad part is the victim and his wife were just minutes from leaving town on an wedding aniversary trip to California. The victim's brother was on the way to pick them up and take them to the airport.

These spineless cowards need to quit shooting innocent and unarmed people.

Been shocked and confused
For so long it's not true
Wanted a woman
Never bargained for you

For those of you seeking "journalism" from this station, please understand...it is the 164th largest market in the US, and there is a reason the likes of Henry "Steffi" Graff have been here for close to a decade.

BTW, are the neighbors really "devastated"? Look up the meaning of that word.

Awww!! Did the big bad police hurt your feelings old lady? Did it upset you that they were telling you to leave and get back because they were dealing with someone who was supposed to have a GUN??? Get the hell over it! Im sure if there was something you were supposed to knnow they would have told you. Other than that, mind your own damn business. They told you to leave probably so your nosey **** didn't get hurt yoo! You idiot! Go the hell back where you came from!
Well now

"Been Dazed and Confused." But who knows, they may have meant what you typed in their drug addled brains.
