Default Another Shooting in our Community

I am not sure what is happening in our sleepy little community.
About two weeks ago a church was set on fire - arson. A week ago our church and a church about a mile from ours were both shot at. They had their front glass doors blown out. We lost the glass side door in our education wing and 5 other bullet holes in a class room - due to richocheting they traveled thru inside walls, ruined sheet rock, a vcr and ceiling tile and the metal that holds it in place. Thankfully no one was hurt as the best we can figure it happened late Friday night, but wasn't found until Sunday am. as our pastor and I were both out of town. So we had a blown out door for over 36 hours, basically heating the outside.

Sunday night there was a drive by shooting at a home in the next town over.

Last night there was another home shot at. This time it was a home of an elderly couple that attend our church. I have mentioned them before - I do errands for them often as he has been diagnosed with lung and brain cancer and she is very frail. He was just placed from the Medical Center into a local nursing home - as he is very unwell.

Last night while she was at the Nursing Home visiting him someone did another drive by shooting. The bullet went thru their big plate glass window in their living room. The bullet lodged into their picture of Jesus which is on the wall over their couch.

We had a Reportor at our church earlier today - for the Fox News - a station on the other side of the state. I had known of the shooting last night, but had not heard whose house it was at, nor had the Pastor. Now we will have to let the STate Police know these people attend our church, just to rule out that there is or is not a connection.

A few people were frightened before, now this will really scare some from not attending Church.

I hope whoever is up to this mischief is caught quickly.

I feel for you Jen. Down hear in Palm beach county there have been a rash of dunkin donut and convenience store robberies that involved senseless shootings. Had the area businesses locking up earlier. I actually took care of one of the victims last week. Luckily they caught the guys making a run for it to the Bahamas. Things have quieted down.

I am dismayed to report that a third church was targeted last night.
