    This story is even wilder than you think!
    This lady works at a plant in Whitakers and she and some dude were having a fling and the boyfriend found out and after shooting the girl the police suspect he is going after the male friend from work. Obviously, he left word he was on the way, and the security has no doubt stepped up a notch!!!

    Yay! What a winner! Maybe he'll go to jail and find Jesus while my taxes pay for it!

    It is sad that you now have to do criminal background checks before you date. It is even sadder that all of these people are just going crazy with a desire to kill. God bless the woman and the child...

    I hope Ms Bryant pulls through this, that she and her child will be reunited soon and can move on with their lives. I hope they find this guy. All the more reason to do a back ground check on someone before you get involved.
