    I find it really odd that people saw and have identified what the man looked like but nobody has mentioned the car which is considerably bigger than a man!

    My god, so much drama, so much tension lavished on trying to polish a non-story. Tweets about people going in and out of front doors really is dull, dull, dull.

    Why all the pictures of nothing? Here's a door...here's some grass....oh, here's some pavement...

    And the one who said "One neighbour.....said "It's frightening. You just don't expect it"
    I don't think anyone expects to be shot through their kitchen window.

    It IS a nice place to live. It wasn't for a while but don't tar the whole place just by one incident!
