The first article is pretty durn scary. You'd naturally freeze if that happened and by the time you realized they are bad guys it's too late. Very sad.
But one sentence catches my attn. it's the one that says the police don't think it random but instead they were targeted. It may be a ploy to calm the public but if true than it would make me feel better. I am curious if either of the victims have criminal records or are the neighborhood drug dealer and were targeted for that.
