I just read on another news site that two men died from shootings last night in Prince William.


Two murders in one night in the same general area. I suppose we can expect more of this as more and more Democrats move in. Nothing in the article about it being a hate crime so I'm sure the victim's families are much relieved.


Yet another fear monger who loves to politicize everything. Good job, Soily. Working your way up toward CCW and Insidebugging.


Soily, It is ignorant deplorables like you who spew hate. Just because you support an anti-American POTUS, don't come on here assuming. Your ignorance to true facts, racism, and bigotry is anti-American as well.


Talk about assuming and ignorance. I hate racism. I never spew hate. 99% of hate comes from your side.


With all these good guys with guns, I'm surprised there wasn't a good old boy nearby to return fire. After all, it wasn't in a gun free zone....


That is a heavily Democratic part of the county. It is unlikely that any good guys with a gun were anywhere nearby.

But seriously, as is the case with almost every murder in Prince William County, Insidenova does not provide any pertinent information about the crime. Was it a drug deal? Was it gang related? Was it a domestic diispute? Was it related to an argument over football. The general public will never know. We will see a dozen or two articles just like this every year, year after year.


On Sept 17 another man was killed in the SAME vicinity.


Its those apartments down by Wallmart. Cesspool
