Sad Horrible Story
So today was move-in day for my cousin's freshman year in college.. He's going to Marist College which is in NY on the Hudson river i guess about 50 miles north of NYC or so?
long story short, he's going up no problem, moves in.... few of his friends from high school also were driving up there to move in today... tonight he finds out the family was either driving there or they were on their way home from dropping their son off (the events are still unfolding).... they are driving and come upon a car driving rediculously slow so they flicker the bright lights... the car moves over to the side and as the car with the family in it passes by the other car fires a gun at them and kills the father driving and the mother in the passenger seat is in the hospital in ICU and the daughter is in the backseat for all of this
talk about f'ed up .... makes me sick

You have to be so freaking careful these days. All the more reason for carring a gun. After all the BS I saw and heard with the evacuations from hurricanes Katrina & Rita, I was standing in line to get my gun license intead of a line for a generator.

Student's father slain by gunman
Dad dies in NYC after dropping off co-ed at Marist
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — A gunman on a cocaine-and-booze binge in Queens killed a Long Island man who had earlier dropped off his daughter at Marist College, police said.
The gunman wounded two others in a series of drive-by shootings across six frightening hours in Queens, prompting a massive manhunt that ended when he surrendered peacefully after police stopped his car early Saturday, authorities said.
Three other people were injured by flying glass, including an off-duty police lieutenant, during the rampage by Matthew Colletta, 34, of Queens, police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Hayes said.
Colletta was behind the wheel of a green 1992 Cadillac when the shooting began at about 7:20 p.m. Friday, police said.
Although police said the choice of victims was apparently random, Colletta's last five targets were all red automobiles. The slain man was riding with his wife to their Long Island home after dropping their daughter off at Marist.
Colletta drove across the length of Queens, starting in Maspeth and heading north before going back to Forest Hills, repeatedly firing a silver 9mm Ruger handgun along the way, police said.
There were nine separate shooting incidents. Police said Colletta was on a cocaine and alcohol binge before the gunfire started.
Todd Upton, 51, of Massapequa, was a passenger in his family's red Toyota minivan car in the remote Bay Terrace section when he was fatally wounded with a bullet to the neck as his wife drove along the Cross Island Parkway at about 11 p.m. Upton died a short time later at the New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens.
The Upton slaying was one of four shootings in a 25-minute span, with bullets flying at two other red minivans and a red Toyota 4X4.
Colletta was arrested based on a description provided by the injured lieutenant and other witnesses. Before police located the Cadillac and stopped Colletta, a manhunt that included helicopters and police from neighboring Nassau County was launched, police said.
Colletta was charged with murder, assault, reckless endangerment and weapons possession, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said. He was expected to be arraigned today in Queens Criminal Court. Colletta's attorney, Todd Greenburg, did not return calls for comment.
