    I think you mean one! One won't be doing much of anything anymore.

    Props that this guy giving himself a fighting chance by arming himself. Also big props for being able to draw down and land hits on a bad guy that sounds like already had the jump on him.

    Glad to hear they think they know who the other suspect is. Not sure about the laws up there but in some places the second suspect could be charged with murder. Now we'll see how long it takes for Marquis Strange's family to come out about what a good boy he was.
