The sleet and ice that made city streets slippery this week has kept most drivers from venturing out of the driveway, and has closed schools and shut many small businesses. But snow days simply aren’t allowed with some professions, especially those related to the emergency field.

Summit Ave. to investigate a report of a “possible accidental shooting.” The police report indicates that the victim had been “accidentally shot in the buttocks by his friend.” The gun used in the shooting was a .380 caliber Ruger handgun.
