  • Ooh, scary says:

    This uptick in gun crime can not be ignored. Shootings used to be a rare occurrence but are now happening with surprising frequency. If I’m noticing, I’m assuming our local LEOs realize that as well. And do something about it. And soon.

  • HumbleOpinion says:

    So everyone thought you can come to quiet Suburban Lakewood for a peaceful living? We now have constant robberies, traffic and congestion, the rat race for homes and cars and now….murders too. I miss Brooklyn.

  • Avraham says:

    We wish our Police officers and detectives lots of success in catching this murderer.

  • Stam a guy says:


    We are so happy you are here. But you are free to go back to bklyn

  • So sad says:

    Another shooting ? That’s crazy. Although comparing it to Brooklyn borders on the absurd, it definitely is concerning. And while I love LPD and all that they do for the community, they need to Increase patrols and presence in the high crime areas. Which, btw, I’m sure they will.

  • Justsayin.... says:

    Quick tell the Governor to tale away all the guns from all the legal gun owners. That will stop this from happening ever again.

  • Where says:

    Where is Lakewood Police?
