    Fairmount Ave SW is completely blocked at the moment. I don’t advise taking this route for a bit.

      Thanks. Police and fire were telling dispatch they had to hike in to the house.

        Chaplain dispatched, which usually means a death.

          Often but not always. Probably won’t be able to find out more until tomorrow.

        The road is back open. Most of the response is gone except some police officers.

    It was my brother, he attempted suicide. He is in the operating room but it does not look good. Please pray for him and my family and if there is anyone, ANYONE, in your life you are concerned about… check in on them and let them that you care. That they are not alone.

      Hey I live next door, let me know if there’s anything I can do for you or your dad. 

      • Brother August 18, 2021 (9:03 am)

        He is in complete shock… it happened right in front of him. He needs to talk to someone but I don’t know if he will be able to. He and my younger brother had a special bond and to have to see something like that, I’m just not sure he is ever going to be the same.

          Saddened to hear about your brother and sorry to hear as well. I am a licensed mental health counselor and we have an office on Harbor Ave. SW. Although I’m not taking new clients, I’d be glad to offer assistance personally or refer you to the mental health professionals we work with. Feel free to email me for yourself, your dad or both together: premiertxex@gmail.com. I will pray for you and your family.

      Brother, I am praying for you and your family. May you all find healing with time. Love to you.

    Tragic…prayers all the way around. 

  • JJ August 18, 2021 (7:24 am)

    My prayers are sent, for your brother, for you and your dad, for our whole community, and for my family too.

    Praying for you all. I’m so sorry this happened. So much suicide is happening now. Depression is very serious. I’m not sure if that’s what your loved one was struggling with. But to everyone out there, if you know someone who struggles with depression please help them seek help. You could be the one to save a life. My family has dealt with depression for years. I too suffer but thank God I have a great support system now.

    I live nearby and am so sorry to hear about your brother.  We will be thinking of him and sending him healing thoughts.  Same for you and your Dad. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
