“What’s the matter?”
“I don’t like to be the one to tell you these things, but you don’t watch the news…”
Now, I’m panicked. What the hell happened?! “What happened?!”
“There was some guy in Trolley Square and he shot ten people before the cops shot him.”
We live within walking distance of Trolley Square.
“He killed some people in Cabin Fever.”
“Which one is that?”
“You know the pink store right across from Tabula Rasa?”
We browse at Tabula Rasa EVERY time we go to that mall.
“I thought you didn’t read the local news.”
“I don’t it was on CNN.”
“Did they kill him?”
“Yeah, an off-duty Ogden cop shot him.”
“So they don’t know why he did it?”
Our flags are at half-mast, but something about the shooting bothers me. When there is a gang-related shooting in West Valley, the flags don’t go at half-mast. Why?
