I just learned that a friend and ex-coworker that I was pretty close with got shot in his home on Monday night. Apparently he was shot through his front door. Currently, he's alive, but in the hospital still. I think he's gonna be ok, but I'm pretty shaken about the whole situation.


Has anyone dealt with this kind of thing before? I've had friends die before, but never in intentional ways. I'm not sure how to cope


I don't even know what the point of this thread is. I'm just really upset

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Through the door? Are you sure it was intentional?

Couldve been crossfire.

And ive never been through something like that but ive had too many people close to me die o or come way too close to it. Even myself. So i understand where youre coming from man. All you can so is support your friend and keep your head up, shit sucks.

Unexpected violence is always disturbing. I have found that the best way (for me at least) to process it is to DO something.

Don't sit around and dwell, get out and move, and if you can help people out while you're doing it, that's even better. Since you can't fix your friend, maybe you can help some other people out and at least tip the cosmic scale back to the positive side a bit.

It sounds cliche, but use this negative as an opportunity to do something positive.

Might not work for you, but that's what I've done in the past.

No. All I know is that he's alive at the moment.


I think it was probably intentional because he manages some rental properties and I've heard stories about some less-than-reputable tenants he's had to deal with. It's just speculation, but I wouldn't be surprised if a disgruntled evictee went after him.

Makes me sick, dude. hope he's okay.

there was an incident one state over from me where this pastor's pregnant wife was murdered in a home invasion in early November this year. Shot in the head. there were pictures posted of her with her family, they already had a kid, and in one they were dressed up as he Incredibles for halloween, which was just a few days before :\ it's fucking sad dude.
#14
I see youre point, and that makes sense. Dude couldve knocked on his door and all that.

My thoughts are with your friend though, hang in there.

go see him

This. Bring him some food, or at least tell him you tried to sneak a beer in, but you got caught.

Reassure him that the two of you can go for shots at bar later.


Seriously though, that's terrible man. Sorry to hear. Definitely go visit him.

When a close friend of mine passed away a couple years ago I was pretty distraught about it. My advice would be don't stop doing the things you love doing just because you are depressed. Playing guitar and listening to music helped me out a lot during that time, if that's what you love do that, or whatever else you love doing.
#27
There's no actual dealing with it until you hear news from the hospital for either way. At least I've found no way to deal with that apprehension. If you can, call a close friend and be with them.

Just spoke to him. Here's what happened:


He runs a kind of "under the table" painting business and he had to fire this guy because he was crazy and always fucked every job up. The guy was demanding to be paid for his two days' work and he showed up at my friend's house. My friend wouldn't let him in, because, as I said, he's crazy, so the guy pulled out a gun and shot him through his front door.

This kinda changes things. I mean, not that the shooting is justified but your friend took on some risk.
