SHOOTING Seeking answers in Collins

It is almost unthinkable. “Targeted” shots fired at a home on Route 39, also Main Street, in the town of Collins after 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Five occupants, two of whom were awake, heard the shots from outside before learning that a 7-year-old boy who was sleeping in his bed was a victim in the incident. Fortunately, according to early reports, he is expected to be OK.

But questions and worries remain. Who would do this and why?

It has our section of rural America in shock — and having plenty of concern.
