We don't go there anymore since my truck was broken into there at PF Changs. It is just yet another section of charlotte that is unsafe.

It seems like it's getting to the point where it just makes sense to shop in the safest place of all - amazon.com.

If they were not acquainted would that be unsafe?

Discharging a firearm in a Parking Lot at People is safe?
Wonder if the guy hit by the bullet agrees that it was a safe shooting?
"Oh, he's just a friend and did not mean to shoot me".

What kind of Pot is this spokesperson smoking, cause I need to get some.
Maybe gets it from the Dreadlock Thug with a Gun?

So the police aren't looking for the DTWG driving an Excursion?
"No sense in pursuing DTWG, he's was just shooting at his friends"

AMAZING!!!
You reaction is about identical to mine when I heard that the public wasn't really at risk during this parking lot gangsta shoot out.

well, I've heard some horror stories about identity theft that make a non threatening bullet wound sound like the lesser of 2 evils.

If there is another shooting in the next few weeks or a bad crime then I think you will be onto something...

No I am not convinced.

Maybe when the overall quality of the clientele drops and the name brand stores leave, then I'll consider your thought. While this incident is sad to see, it is not indicative of the overall state of the mall.

Well.... for some, one incident is all it takes for an area of Charlotte to become Detroit.
