Last night, some guy was shot in the parking lot of the Wild Oats on Capitol Highway, then dumped next to Kes and Aileen’s house in Hillsdale. From KGW&:
Just before midnight, central precinct officers found the man’s body at a Legacy Hospital hospice center at 6171 SW Capitol Highway. Sgt. Brian Schmautz said it appears the unidentified man was shot at a strip mall nearby and then moved to the hospice, where he was prounced dead.
This panned out interestingly for Kes, who works in an in-home office. Here is the email thread between Kes and wife Aileen, who works here with me.

Glad they didn’t use our mud hole…[Kes and Aileen are doing a major remodeling job that is held up because of city permitting woes. They have a giant pit next to their house. --ed.]

at least it was a Wild Oats parking lot. Had it been the east side, it would’ve been a gas station or strip club parking lot.

This is great, our shitty side of the house will be on the news, as will the shot of the minority eating Burger King [Kes is referring to himself. --ed.] on a half finished deck over a giant mud hole… Just the impression Hillsdale was going for :)
Saks [the cat] was rolling around on his side so I could pet him and he rolled right off the belvedere [part of the deck]! He’s OK
