"There’s no easy way to put this, but our corner patio was the target of a random shooting on Friday night. One of our Aberdeen family members was hit, but is luckily doing just fine.

We want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and well-wishes so far, it is greatly appreciated. We’re thankful no one else was hit, but want to send love and support to everyone who was there or affected by what happened."
