So that's why Old Dogwood was shut down. There was another shooting there not too long ago.

I have about 30 minutes of footage as the crime scene was cleared... Crazy. Friends and I walked those streets as kids.. I wouldn't do it now..

Where this happened, there are ALWAYS panhandlers asking for cash at the exit ramp off 400 south at HBR. The police seem to just ignore it.

There's a lot of people hanging out there in general. Usually there's a dozen or so day laborers hanging around the Chevron station, and a cop car or three in the office complex next door.
