    I’m confused. The police make it sound like the shooting at Dandy Town was not targeted, but why then did a family member of the 16 year old girl, who visited her in the hospital says she was shot in the stomach 4 times, and under the arm once. So how did all those bullets hit one person if it was a non-targeted shooting????

    Checking with a former regiment guy, he says depending on the type of gun – 4 bullets could have been sprayed in under 2 seconds….or even quicker if it “slips” he said. Just hitting her practically all at a time type thing…

    From what I understand from the eyewitnesses – the gunmen just rode along and just shot and it was so many people at the club that they tell us there was no way it could have been targeted. Just not even feasible, is what we have heard – but of course I myself was not there.

    The Police used the word “indiscriminate” to refer to the shooting, which may sound mild – but they are very, very careful with their wording in press releases – so the word is more vital then it appears.

    I hope she will be okay…

      thanks for the clarification. Apparently they say she’s doing fairly well.

    I hope the girl recovers…can’t shake the question in my head though….WHAT was a 17 year old doing out at that hour of a Monday morning in the first place???? We, as parents, need to be held MORE responsible and accountable for our children.

      I had the same thought – and WHAT was a club doing allowing her underage patronage – clearly she was not there for the enjoyment of a legitimate sporting game at that hour! Everyone needs to be held accountable. Their liquor licence should be challenged!
