Growing up, one of the things kids in my neighborhood would do is something they called Ding Dong Ditch. Basically, they'd ring a doorbell and then run away. Big laughs when you're an 8 year old and nobody's yet introduced you to huffing cans of Krylon.
Seems over in the Valley, someone's taken it a step farther.
The suspect apparently rang the doorbell and immediately shot the victim when he opened the door, Setzer said.Wait. What? An ongoing problem? With people getting shot when they answer their door? How many times does it have to happen for it to be "ongoing"?
"There's been an ongoing problem in this neighborhood," Setzer said, declining to elaborate.
If you live in the Valley, you might want to consider answering the door with a loaded 12 gauge. Just sayin'.
