This story about a local shooting death concerns me, since it was not far from where I live. People's concern and outrage led one man to say "the neighborhood is going downhill".

But another neighbor says he was aware of some past history and family disputes between the victim and the shooter. The man shot his own son on Father's Day. It is no surprise to find that there are people in my neighborhood with guns, since there's a gun club just around the corner and some of my weekends I hear the distant fire of rifles at clay pigeons. And I find I'm much less concerned since I heard it was not a random shooting. I mean, I feel remorse for what happened but not much in the way of fear for myself or my family. It's a shock, but not a pack-up-the-kids-and-sell-the-house-now kind of event. I know there's much worse going on in other neighborhoods.
