For those wondering about the helicopter: I was just there. SWAT team stopped a suspect vehicle at the Montecito Bank & Trust. Vehicle has been thoroughly searched. Unknown if related to this shooting. They are clearly done over there, yet they're keeping the helicopter above for whatever reason. Not sure if they are doing another operation or not.

And as I sent this the helicopter is now leaving the area. I have no idea why the helicopter was circling the area for 30+ minutes after their operation was done.

It’s circling as to justify having one. How many suspects have been apprehended so far vs how much money is spent? Doesn’t pencil I bet.

Only sixteen. What a way to come into manhood. I hope that whatever happens, this incident will provide the boy an opportunity for counselling, a strong mentor, and turn him around and reorient him to a productive decent happy life path.
