Dalton Law Firm Bombed

A law firm in downtown Dalton, Georgia was bombed earlier this morning. According to NewsChannel 9, the suspect is dead and four others were injured. Among the injured are an attorney, a client and a female employee. Another TV is reporting that someone threw a bomb in through a window. According to the Daily Citizen, the district attorney says this “assault on the judicial system” may have stemmed from a bitter lawsuit the suspect was involved in.

I can’t get enough information about this. I know three of the lawyers at the firm, and I have yet to hear if they are ok. One of them I got to know very well when I was the Daily Citizen’s courts reporter and he was interning at the DA’s office. One I know from numerous court cases and from being on the local board of education.

I am, of course, very sad this happened, but the crime reporter in me wishes I was still in the area covering the heck out of this. After spending close to 5 years as a dedicated crime reporter, I know that desire will never go away.

    Wow, that is scary. (We get most of our carpet for our business from Dalton.) You just never know when someone is going to go psycho.

    My grandparents live near (sorta) Dalton in Rossville, GA. I was shocked when I heard this on the talk radio station the other morning. I hope all your friends were O.K. I know this post is kinda late, but I just found your blog surfing through other peoples blog rolls.
