From LNP’s rewrite of the DA’s press release today on the shooting in Columbia, “Police drop third-degree murder charge against 17-year-old accused in Columbia homicide; case moves to juvenile court,” (click here).
You just realized that, LNP? On July 31st, I placed the DA’s initial press releases in both cases side by side on this site (click here). Unbelievable. There will be more tomorrow. Have a safe and fun Friday!

HE WILL BE MAILED A SUMMONS!
Domonic Bowers will be mailed a summons for the following four charges according to Manheim Township Police Sergeant Michael T. Piacentino by phone yesterday:
“Bowers had been tailgating and shining his vehicle’s high beams at another driver upon the roadway. Bowers then pulled up alongside the other vehicle and aimed a black pistol [it turned out to be a pellet gun] out the window directly at the occupants of the other vehicle.”
— Disorderly Conduct
— Driving while driver’s license is suspended
This 23-year-old has a prior criminal history including from June of this year. He would certainly appear to be a danger to the public. But, according to Piacentino, because all of these are misdemeanors, he will be mailed a summons for the above charges.
