    Choke Wagon. Since you don't live in zuch close proximity to this shooting (300 yrds max. from my front door step), I'd like to know not just the "who and the where"; i wanna know why so i can tell my daughter not to jog down that direction of my street. You see, she left my home to jog in prep for a 5K at her school. Sentionalism???? I think not; just a concerned neighbor who wants to see his daughter finish her first 5K run...

    Soooooo...what's your beef..??? weak coverage..??? WRAL told you who, what, when, where...I'm sure they could have gone into more detail and added a few things but then you would have been crying about sensationalism..!!

    I'm scared to go to Morrisville.

    Yeah, pretty weak coverage. I live in Providence Place and heard the shots; knew right off what they were. Within five mins, Morrisvile's Finest were on the scene; +1 for the badges. Anyhow, WTVD 11 had their chopper flying above w/a live feed and even their site's coverage is just as thin as WRAL's. Come on guys, get out from behind those desks...
