An eighth victim has died. He was an 18 year old male.
Our police chief has advised that we stay vigilant and cautious.
A few of the schools had to help with the identification of some of the teenagers by supplying finger prints of the slain students.
That makes me wonder if the the shots were in the face.
There is a young man in jail now. He lived in the same home as the murdered but was not at home at the time. He found them and called 911.
He was charged with tampering with evidence, drug possession, and resisting arrest.
At first it looked like a murder-suicide but that has been ruled out.
I went to the area yesterday evening to take pictures`and talk to the neighbors but the police have the area locked down tight.
I did talk with several citizens around town and it seems most everybody is armed and ready for an aggressor should they feel threatened.
That is a little scary in it's self. The fear I saw on peoples eyes haunted me as I went to sleep last night.
There is a $25,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer or killers.
One of the stories going around, and there are many, is that it was a gang initiation ritual.
I will report back later today as I have to have surgery this morning for a fistula to be done in my arm for dialysis.
I will be using one hand to type because the other arm will be sore and I'll most likely be medicated for the pain.
