Shooting Near Parkcrest

So Saturday night there was a birthday party held at the Masonic Temple next door to one of our Parkcrest campuses (about 30 feet from my office). I did not know any of the students but apparently the news of the party got out on the internet and anywhere form 2 to 500 students showed up. That room might hold 50 if you’re real snug. Well, a fight broke out and then someone started shooting. A 15 year old girl and a 17 year old boy were both fatally shot as well as a third victim in the leg. There were cops everywhere.

It breaks my heart to see people hurting. Sunday morning I was directing traffic as parents were coming to pick up the cars of their children who were at the party. Many of the students were in a daze. Most of them wanting to just go to a birthday party and ending up seeing some of their friends die.

Please be praying for the families of the victims. Also be praying for the suspect who has not been found. Pray that that person comes to grips of what he/she has done and turns him/herself in.

My heart breaks for things like this. It’s never fun. And it never gets easier.
