John: Saw in one of the media reports that you were not far away on an errand with child when this crime happened.

Here's hoping and praying for the best for you and yours, the owners, workers, and clients at Dunwoody Prep, the family of the murdered man, the police who are investigating, and all who are made to worry by a crime like this.

Addendum on minor issue: Yikes! Trolls!

I find it a bit disturbing the Dunwoody Police Dept did NOT contact the local schools immediately following this shooting. A parent first alerted Austin's principal, then she called DeKalb School security, who then called Dunwoody PD. We now know that the shooting seems not to be random, but is our PD that smart that they knew this as soon as it happened. No cops in school zones, except once a quarter to shoot radar (DeKalb had a motor at every elem school daily) and now no lock downs aided by Dun PD? Are the police here to serve and protect only Perimeter Mall and not our children?

Hopefully the Police will find this murderer. Remember the Peeler arsonists are still at large too.

What occurred was tragic, but nothing to warrant hysteria.

If you want to live within a control grid, you should sleep easier knowing that your local governance is working diligently to provide that for you.
