I'll see if I can get the dirt on what went down when I go get my post-work Slurpee. My guess? Someone robbed the 7-11 then shot someone for their car to make the getaway. That or meth deal gone bad.
According to the two people who usually beg for change out in front of the 7-11, it was actually a fairly vicious beating as a result of a case of mistaken identity. Apparently it involved one of the guys who usually asks people to buy beer for him even though he looks like he's 45 at the youngest. Regardless, no shooting, no meth (at least it wasn't mentioned), but booze did play a factor. But aggrevated assault is still a violent crime, so the violent crime rate still goes up a tiny notch.
