    are you kidding me…the kids he shot at are the same kids that shot at someones child on taylor ave in dec 12..then a cpl other ppl a few months later and they still walk the street but someone shoots at them and you arrest them..maybe if the kids from myrtle formally from s.irving were arrested as they should of been in the 1 st place none of this would of happened..but no instead of police doing there job ..they wanted to “know why he shot at the kids on taylor” if you don’t believe me go back and read the tiny article from dec 2012 in the sr.times….that town is so corrupt…

      So, with all this shooting going on, there she some sort of gun search/sweep for illegal weapons?! In the case(s) of where there has been shootings like this. It’s got to get cracked down somewhere, somehow as you suggested!

    Indeed Spank! The family that plays together huh? Hopefully they will stay locked up awhile, however, IF the gun was legal, they can say there was just cause or some sort of self-defense. By “juveniles,” I am assuming the targets were minors.
