    It happened outside Wood's TV at the corner of Worth Street and Rockford Street.

    We spent a couple of days in Mt. Airy, isn't it the "Mayberry" of "Andy Griffith" fame?

    Local TV reporting the victims were "four Hispanic men", and that two suspects are on the loose.

    I'm in a different media market, so nothing new to update here. This is so sad ~ it is a nice, quiet town.

    I just checked for any updates and couldn't find anything except what was basically in the initial reports. Was there a news conference?
