    It was a shooting, suspect fled on a bicycle. He was wearing green shorts. You see, I went down to the scene, like a reporter should. I asked witnesses, what happened. Did Nikki not want to leave the a/c?

      Well, she WAS in Williamsport after all. Not recommended to get out your car downtown. Even at Wegmans…anything can happen in that parking lot.

    Williamsport Cops will never make the crime show The First 48…….they hardly ever solve murders

    Since 2008, 18 people have been shot and killed, 11 were young black men and two were black women. (That’s 70% of gun violence victims were black! African-Americans only make up 13.5% of the population.)

      Preach it! And what about all the unsolved arsons? A while back little old Montgomery, PA had an arsonist. Captured within 12 hours. But big Williamsport with their big bad SWAT team can’t catch their arsonist(s). Perhaps Williamsport should get help from Montgomery in solving their crimes. Didn’t they just request help from the FBI? How about letting the FBI take over completely.
