    Its sad to see what has been happening in that area in the last few years. It used to be THE place to live, in the Brentwood area. Its so depressing to see what it has become.

    Green Road, Kilcullen Drive area is ghetto now compared to what it was 20 years ago. Ride through there, especially Kilcullen. Actually the whole Mini City area has gone downhill in the past 10 to 12 years. The whole area is being taken over my immigrants. A once thriving and nice shopping center is now home to vacant buildings and cheap strip mall stores.

    I would slink from tree to tree and when I heard a car coming I would hide in the bushes...12:30 in the AM...only bad things happen anywhere... the bad sleep in the day and hunt at night.

    Well the map indicates it happened near the intersection of NHC and Greene Rd. Brentwood is a decent place to live, my family still lives there. The apartments are sort of sketchy, but the neighborhood itself is fine.

    "Anyone else think this guy accidentally shot himself in the leg then made up the story to cover it up? Seems to be pretty vague on details and, let's be honest, the guy had no money so they shot him in the leg???? bmullins"

    I agree bmullins. The details given make me skeptical.
