SHOOTING LAST NIGHT.
THE SHOOTING HAPPENED IN THE 400 BLOCK OF EAST DRAGONFLY
ROAD AROUND 9PM.
KXLY 4'S CATIE CURREY JOINS US NOW IN THE STUDIO WITH
AARON, RIGHT NOW THERE AREN'T MANY DETAILS AVAILABLE,
BUT HERE'S WHAT WE DO KNOW.
A NEIGHBOR SAYS HE SAW COEUR D'ALENE POLICE ENTERING
BOTH SIDES OF A BACKYARD AND YELLING AT THE MAN.
SHOTS WERE FIRED SHORTLY AFTER.
When I heard 6 or 7 pop, you know at first it sounded
like a gun but I thought it was just the nieghboring
kids who had graduated.
THOSE WHO LIVE CLOSE TO SCENE CAN'T BELEIVE SOMETHING
LIKE THIS HAPPENED IN THE NORMALLY QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD.
It's really sad.
I just moved in the neighborhood.
Regardless of the situation good or bad, I feel bad
for a mother losing her son.
