The ECST is reactive. Shoot, react, count the number of shell casings, and wait for the next shooting.


That’s some really complete news channel 12 you didn’t tell us anything about what went down ?


Another lovely day in Lents.


Now that's interesting. According to the headline, the man was injured "after" the shooting. Was he hit by a car? or what? Or was he actually injured "in" the shooting or "during" the shooting? :)
