    This doesn't feel to me like a hit related to June 6 murders.

    The way this comes off to me is that someone drives by AM, recognizes him and impulsively thinks, “what an opportunity” on this rural road and he’s alone. Turns around and pops him with no intent except self-satisfaction.

    JOO — my crazy imagination.

    Well, maybe. But would this make it seem like there are 2 men out there shooting at AM who may also have shot and killed PM and MM? Maybe to create a little doubt on who really murdered PM and MM? And Randy doing the spinaroo thing again? Geez.

    Then obviously not self inflicted.

    Yup. If this was staged, other people were involved.

    If connected, which I absolutely believe to be the case, it’s very likely to bring this all to a head.

    Law enforcement appeared to be closing in on those responsible (DA stepping aside), but something this brazen is bound to help their efforts.

    I actually wouldn’t be surprised to see an arrest in this, before we see an arrest for the double murders.

    In any event, I think it’s going to be a very interesting week or two.

    Considering this started in June and we are now in September. I hope this incident doesn’t drag on as well.

    I'm still trying to catch up. But he either was hit in the head or it was a glancing blow.

    "Gunshot wounds to the head are more difficult to predict. Think of the skull as a closed box that cradles the brain. There isn't a lot of room for movement fo the brain or swelling in the skull. If a bullet enters the head and bounces around, the permanent cavity (bullet track) may be large, but the damage from the temporary cavity that forms is even worse. There is no room for the brain to move and the shock waves often cause irreversible damage. For some lucky people, if the bullet velocity is high and there is no side to side movement (wobble) and it passes through non-critical parts of the brain, less damage occurs and survival is possible."

    He may have gotten out to look at the tire but I see him calling roadside/Onstar to handle it as opposed to changing it himself. He had business attire hanging in the back seat. With the connections he has it would seem he could get someone dispatched fairly quickly.

    given how rural and relatively small area both the PM and MM's murders and AM's shooting occurred in, combined with how well known the family is, i highly doubt the two are unrelated. It's possible, but lightning isn't very likely to strike twice. Maybe some vigilante justice going on....

    I agree and hope they don’t wall this off too. It just seems, with this twist, that SLED will have to make a move. This just keeps getting bigger.

    As far as we know, there was never any property surveillance cam footage from the original mother/son crime scene, correct? If the family wouldn't outfit their home with cameras, not likely they would with vehicles?

    AM seems like somebody that’s comfortable with a rural way of life, I don’t really see changing a tire as that far off. But the rest of this situation seems way off.

    Long-time reader, made an account a while ago, finally going to say something: Per the Island Packet article recently posted, law enforcement is only confirming that someone was shot. Without corroborating evidence in addition to quoted info (especially info that’s getting relayed between multiple people - e.g., from AM to his brother to the lawyer), I’m skeptical of taking anything as a proven fact. Just my opinion, but I’m very interested to see what evidence surfaces.

    There was video of a news reporter on the Facebook page of one of the major tv stations. He was at the shooting site and did state that he counted about 10 bellet casings there. That's the only first person report from the news media so far. The rest we'll have to wait for verification.

    This is so bizarre. Likely not self inflicted with 10 shells and no gun. Also not likely to be staged with a head shot, too little room for error (death). Random? Highly unlikely. But maybe, and I would expect a robbery to be the motive, and not mention of that from the lawyer.

    It has to be targeted. That would mean someone had to do something to the tire to know it would puncture/deflate in route in a desolate area. If you did it beforehand, you would have to assume Alex would ignore the low tire pressure warning at startup. I don’t know if he would, especially if the car gives a PSI reading.

    I can’t wrap my head around this one. Even if it was a movie, it would be so unbelievable.

    I wonder if A.M.'s vehicle was equipped with a Dash Cam. If so, it would have captured the truck passing and then returning to shoot.

    Dash Cams still record in Parked mode when the car is turned off (If Parked Mode is set to stay on)

    Just a possibility. JMO
