Someone Shoots Window At Rose Motorcycle In Rossville Wednesday Night

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Larry Rose of Rose Motorcycle in Rossville posted on his Facebook page Wednesday night that someone again shot into his business. 

Mr. Rose posted, "Well, there's never a dull moment here in safe Rossville. Another 22 caliber bullet shot through a window here at the shop tonight. This time a little too close for comfort for me. This one got me a little shook up.

"I was sitting at my computer looking up some parts and BAM, glass is peppering me in the face and bouncing off the wall and hitting me in the back. I look up and only see one vehicle pass heading towards Fort Oglethorpe.

"I spring up and head to my car for a chase. I catch up to the vehicle and get the tag number and turn it in to Rossville PD.

"Looking now at the hole from where I was sitting on the stool at the counter looking up parts, it makes it look like the bullet cleared my head 5 to 10 inches.

"All I really have to say about it is, welcome to Rossville. Stay safe out there."

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (10)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
