Just damn! This is maybe 10 miles from here. Closer to Guillermo, I believe.
I heard an early report on this around 7AM while out getting gas in the wife's car. That report was sketchy and generic, and I thought it could have been drug related.

Yikes! I got home from taking my kitty to the vet an hour ago and discovered my front door was unlocked. I hadn't opened it today, which makes me wonder if I left it unlocked all night! Well, it's locked now! And I'll be sure to be more vigilant. Thanks for the ping.

Whew tried to post back twice and got dropped by the server.
What a terrible thing. He sounded like a nice guy, who raised a nice son. Pity a firearm wasn't handier. I still haven't heard yet the details. I wonder how he targeted these homes?

FP, please ping me also if there are significant developments on this.

.45MAN and I heard this on the 5am news. When I got to work I learned that the elder Bill Venable and the husband of a co-worker (also a coach) are (were) friends.
A totally senseless tragedy. Prayers for all concerned.
This is why there is a chair propped under the front door's knob (only entrance to apt) and guns at the ready each night when we retire. Call me paranoid, but this *is* Atlanta.

Too bad he didn't run into a Georgian holding a .357 or .45.

Thanks for the ping, friend.
"At that point, two Gwinnett police officers shot the suspect, Huggins said.
The unidentified suspect, who appeared to be in his early 20s, died at Gwinnett Medical Center.
Good job. One bright spot amongst the tragic deaths of Mr. Venable and son. Prayers for the family.
