I agree Framingham does not feel safe, I saw 2 police cars lights on driving down Grant St. this evening , but it was like 6pm,so not sure if this had anything to do with what was going on. The Bishop St. So called Home Invasion last weekend turned out to be the guy was as high as a kite and he called the police, he was growing Pot, had hash and Mushrooms in the house. A lot of Shootings lately too. l am a bit scared to send my son to school now. Hope they find theses people and get them off the streets.. keep us posted, and thank you for the info on this Breaking news.

Chill out people. This was not a random crime.
Matthew Keefe September 16, 2013 at 01:28 PM
I don't think this was a "random attack". The odds of randomly picking a normal house and doing this just don't add up. While it doesn't make it anymore right.. I wouldn't react too hard. Thanks Mary for keeping us updated.

I don't think it was random either, scary nonetheless. I'm glad to hear that no one was hurt. The parents should think about all the people who may know they have a safe.

Be observant and live your life. You cannot let the people that make poor choices win by making you live your life in fear. Unfortunately this happens everywhere. Let the good out weigh the bad and we win!

it's a darn shame to say it but the people involved are upstanding and didnt deserve what resulted

What's ridiculous is that people still leave their doors unlocked in Framingham. I've never thought of any of the neighborhoods in this town as particularly safe from crime. If you leave your doors unlocked for the world to come in, then you're also partly responsible for what happens.
