Witness says man shot at group

NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating an alleged gun threat made to a group of men on the Lower East Side.

A neighbor who witnessed the incident around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday said someone fired a gun in the 400 block of Spruce Street.

The witness said he was standing on a porch on Countyline Street when he saw a red car stop and the occupants get out. One of them threatened three men who were walking on the road and said, “I will give you three seconds to run,” then he fired a shot at the group.

He said the three who had been walking ran away and another pedestrian picked up the spent shell casing from the ground.

Police said the men were all gone when they arrived and they could not find anyone in the area.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
