Some malls have gone 30+ years without having a shooting. Any shooting in a place that is supposed to be mid- to upscale and/or family oriented is cause for concern.

Here's another point to think about.

If dreadlock has 22 former criminal counts;
#1 How does he fund his BiG SUV, Gun & Ammo, Gasoline?
#2 Is he on Welfare?
#3 Is he a drug dealer, pimp or hitman?
#4 Why is dreadlock out of jail?
#5 How does he drive without a license?
#6 Who insures this vehicle?
#7 How did he buy this vehicle?
#8 What Judge or DA let him slide?
#9 Do you really think Dread cares about others?
#10 Will he strike again - Of course, when?
#11 Where & How did he get a Gun? etc.

Here's a Thug that wants a name for himself - catch him and send him
to IRAN with a Hummer, 32" rims, guns, crack, cash, gas, webcam and ammo...this is where he can be productive and he can build his name:
Secret Agent Dread - SAD.

The shooter with dreadlocks was not the one with 22 felons. The guy he shot in leg was the one who had the record.

My bad - dread should have reloaded then.

How does a guy with 22 counts have time to go shopping
in the middle of the day?

Who let him out of jail?

Where does he get money to shop
or why is he at the mall anyway?

Exactly. Northlake is NOWHERE NEAR Eastland mall territory.

When I first lived here my jeep was broken into, in my driveway in Cornelius...did I move and consider Cornelius the worst area in town. No. Crap happens, unfortunately, and it can happen in any area.

FYI thugs shop everywhere, you may not recognize them, but they're walking around South Park just like anyone else. And no, I'm not talking about pro athletes (since I know some will equate thugs to those guys).

Most people who want to make a name for themselves actually leave a name at the scene of the crime.

I just think he wanted to shoot the guy... and he did.

What else does a guy with 22 counts have to do in a day besides catch a bullet?

Why are you asking so many questions? LOL.

All you have to do is Google "crime at SouthPark", some of the assortment include setting a fire in the Dicks, armed robbery of an armored truck, robbery of a jewelry store, various and sundry muggings. There has actually been far more crime committed at SouthPark in the past year than at NorthLake. Drive by the bus stop near the Red Robin late Saturday afternoon and it will become clear which clietele could be problematic and where they are arriving from. Most of the rest of the area there, the Target, the Lowes, Best Buy and Off Broadway seem to have no problems.
