This is not about a village, a town, or a city, this is about our country, this happens everywhere. You can't go shopping or watch a movie and be safe. Our country needs gun control laws. You could be taking out the trash and be shot at by anyone. Anyone can have a gun here.

Port Chester Resident-People are not criticizing the deceased young man, They dislike that anyone in town should lose their life like this. Of course his friends meant well by getting him to a hospital. However, ambulances are equipped to treat a person on the scene and call ahead to the emergency room to be ready for the arrival of the injured. Emergencies are not the time to worry about money.Of course everyone is sad such a young man had to lose his life in this manner. Sickness is one thing. This incident did not need to happen.the hospital emergency room has to treat anyone brought there immediately regardless of money.
