2 PEOPLE ARE IN JAIL TONIGHT, FACING CHARGES IN CONNECTION WITH A DRIVE-BY SHOOTING IN Wahpeton.
ANDREW LOPEZ FACES A RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT CHARGE, AND CRYSTAL GARCIA FACES THE CHARGE OF BEING AN ACCOMPLICE.POLICE SAY LOPEZ FIRED SEVERAL SHOTS OUT HIS CAR WINDOW, AT A MOBILE HOME AT 905 HARRISON ROAD, ABOUT 9 O'CLOCK WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
8 SMALL CHILDREN WERE PLAYING IN THE HOME OR YARD. NO ONE WAS INJURED.
The video includes the expected comments by the owner of the mobile home. She had no idea why someone would do such a thing. Yet, some of the neighbors seemed to know. They had reported criminal activity in the neighborhood to the police for years. What do you think? Do they have drugs and crime in peaceful North Dakota? I think we've had ND mentioned before as a place with lots of guns and very little gun crime. This must be an exception.
The gun, a .22 the police said, would have been in Lopez' possession illegally. Is it possible that the lax gun laws in North Dakota made it easier for someone like him to get his hands on a gun?
