    so sad.. still can’t believe what happend. My thoughts are with the familys of the dead people and with all the people who got wounded.

    Such a horrible tragedy and hope they find the monster(s) who did this. I cannot imagine what the dad is going through. I pray the little 6 year old recovers fully and pray the mom does too and comes out of this with no brain damage. God bless this family! Martin was a beautiful little boy!
