Shooting in Fairbanks Bar
Normally something like this I wouldn't even think twice about. First it's in Fairbanks and secondly, I don't know alot of people up there. Well, this just happens to be the time that I work with the victims mom and Eric works with the victims dad here in Bethel. Apparently some jealous guy came into the bar and shot the victim because he had started dating the guys ex. He fired 4 to 5 rounds and at least one of them hit the victim in the chest. He's currently in the hospital in Anchorage in what I can only assume in very critical condition. I'm sitting here trying to still process the information. I can only imagine what his parents are going through and what his brothers are going through. His one brother just came back from a tour in Iraq/Afghanistan about a month ago. His parents were so worried about him getting shot/IED, etc. I'm sure they never thought that they would have to worry about one of their sons here, safe in Alaska. I'll keep you all posted on how the victim is doing.
