As a resident of Huntington Woods with children, I'm very concerned that there are those who are supposed to protect the community's safety who chose to shoot a fleeing robber in a residential area as a method of tracking down a suspected criminal. I know children who live on the street where the robber was shot and I'm alarmed that such a decision would be made. Thank goodness none of the Pleasant Ridge residents were injured.
