  1. sounds like a shotgun wound, not a firearm wound

    must have been shot from some distance, because a close proximity shotgun wound would rip him apart.

    Police should be looking for a shotgun rifle, not a sidearm firearm. A rifle is much harder to hide, they should do a house to house. Someone would have seen a rifle being carried.

    Now that is real police work, not going into a school and arresting a woman for something she allegedly wrote on facebook.

    Lets see if they as good at real crime fighting, as they are at arresting women and beating little boys.
