With any luck it's one drug dealing scumbag against another and no innocent members of the public have been involved.

Football fans are almost exclusively morons, it seems. There's more to life than football, you know. Only an utter cretin would reduce every single story to their allegiance to a bunch of people they don't know, kicking a bag of air around a field for 90 minutes now and again. Jesus, Echo, stay classy.

Another Tragic loss of life - for whatever reason - he/she was someones relative and there will be others affected by this death. There is now support available locally for anyone affected by the death in St Mary's area today. http://sebsbereaveme

St Marys - what a surprise. BTW though DE, please hold off on posting anything at all until you actually *have* a story - this is not much better than the 'woman sinking in mud' gaffe and you appear to know absolutely nothing about what happened other than one or two little rumours you rush to print. Totally irresponsible reporting as usual.

"1:17pm

Market worker Carl Lowes, 20, from the Holyrood Estate, said: "I asked police what happened and he said someone has been shot in the head."
"

So EXACTLY THE SAME info you already gave at 12.34pm then, just filling white space now DE, just filling white space....

Here's another sentence to fill some more.

And a bit more.

And more! (no charge)

"Echo reporter Emma Streatfield has send this video of the scene this afternoon."

*Man in uniform walks away from camera for 3 seconds*

Seriously?

The situation is anything but funny, but some of the coverage is bordering on the absurd now...

i would say its the council hold back money or the council boss with big wage packes

i would like the council boss to live down there in st marys see how long he would last

and i would say the council need to work ith the police more to jump on people before it gets out of hand as the council and the police know who they are

"We've had murders here it does happen but it happens everywhere, in Shirley and in Millbrook, everywhere."


LMFAO. You've just named the other two scum areas of Southampton. That is not 'everywhere', those are the places (along with St Marys) that the murders happen..
