    It’s crazy that I go to school with this kid and his brother. Just to know things like this happen in your community is shocking. The same guy you pass in the hallway everday, suddenly turns into something you never imagined. My friends and I are shocked and practically traumatizing knowing he was wondering our streets. Since hearing the news we’ve all been a bit shaken up
