  1. Our thoughts and prayers for the innocent 10 year old victim.

    What I don’t understand is, how could the shooter have gotten the gun in the first place, with all the tight gun laws in NJ that expressly prohibit
    a 14 year old from having a gun?

    Aren’t strict gun laws supposed to work?

  2. As a resident of Lakewood for 35 years, I never understood when people started carving out new streets and building houses in that that neighborhood about 15-20 years ago. Park Ave, was a “Pachad” to drive on even then. I was horrified when those houses went up and I had to drive my kids to friends in that area. And I’m not even a person who gets too scared about these things. It’s not “what is Lakewood coming to?” It’s a matter of if you build in bad neighborhoods, don’t be surprised about crime occurring there. (Not to mention that the area is so ugly!)

  3. “Lakewood Resident says:”
    “What on earth is Lakewood coming to?!”
    just look arround what this once nice place is turning into and you can answer your own question

  4. At the .53 second mark notice how high the grass is at the house on the right. Where’s the inspection dept? In my neighborhood if someones grass gets near the 6″ mark we’re all, and I mean all of us, get warnings no matter how high our grass is.

  5. A 10-year-old boy was shot when his 14-year-old brother picked up a handgun the pair found while playing in their township neighborhood, police said.

    The shooting has been ruled accidental, police said.

  6. You guys are dumb, he has 1 older brother that is 12 years old. He Has NO 14 Year old brother, I Wolud Know because i’m his cousin, Know Your Facts Before Puttig Things Out There Before Knowing !
