Doctor Visit

Gotta be at the clinic today at 1:30pm for my twice yearly blood pressure checkup. While there, going to see what the doctor says about this head stuffiness/eyes watering/nose running I've had for the past couple of weeks, and maybe see about getting a flu shot. After that, might go to the main hospital building and see about making an appointment with the eye clinic. Seems like here lately, I have to hold things further and further away to focus on them.

Egad...

Guess it's a good thing I didn't need a prescription after my doctor appointment today. I did however call in my blood pressure medicine refills before leaving the house earlier, planning on picking them up with any prescription I might get, but decided to wait until tomorrow to go get them instead, opting to just come straight home. I get home, read on the local TV stations Twitter feed about a shooting in the parking lot of where I get my prescriptions filled. I click the link, and read this:

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A person was shot in the parking lot of the West Monroe Brookshires on Cypress Street this afternoon. The person was taken to the hospital in an unknown condition. Police are on the scene investigating.

The shooter is in a stolen silver Toyota Tundra with La. plate W750678. It may be a quad-cab or club cab truck. The shooter is a white male, dressed in all camo, with red hair. If you see the truck call 911 and do not approach this man - police consider him armed and dangerous.

KNOE has a crew on the scene and we will update you when there is more information.


The TV station broke into "Judge Judy" at 4pm and had a live update from the scene. Shooter is still at large, and the person who was shot did not survive.
