  1. Larry Brownlee Jr. was arrested in 2014 for felony assaulting pedestrians with a handgun. Not his first time being justice challenged. Daravion Fajardo also has a felony history for being justice dhallenged dating back to juvenile days.

  2. “Stray” bullet glanced my window frame and broke the glass. Police found the bullet nearby. Quiet residential neighborhood. Curious whether there was an assault target, not mentioned.
