  1. Well can anyone tell it’s summer? This stuff needs to stop. Cops need to crack down on these neighborhoods. One day it’s going to be a child getting hit by a stray bullet. Covid was horrible but one thing it did do, was being down the crap in Lexington park.

  2. The time stamps of first responders RESPONDING SEEEEEMS A BIT OFF…HMMM BUT OKAY hope that the family remembers that

      1. WE ALL MAKE CHOICES…I CHOSE TO WORK IN OFFICE IN THE MEDICAL FIELD…AND DO WELL AT IT. THESE RESPONDERS CHOSE…AND FAILED THIS PARTICULAR DAY. PERIOD.

        1. It’s amazing how much stupidly is in your head. They are volunteers. It is not their career. They have jobs. They do this on their own time. So if you can do better why don’t you join the fire department or rescue squad. F46

          1. As big as southern Maryland has gotten it needs paid fire and rescue departments
            Volunteer response is too slow, not to mention they also have to deal with traffic in the area

          2. Point is STUPID…when lives are involved…time is important especially when the life is literally walking distance and dying. That’s what is in everyone’s head.

    1. I hope they would not post this man’s picture up there like this in a public forum…especially when there are four cameras on the building where the victim was shot. So do those cameras work?
