Pigeon Forge Shooting

A Bristol, TN man was shot and killed Sunday in the River Lodge South parking lot and his father was shot and is in stable condition when they refused to give someone money. Will this make you rethink your plans? I know that I go to Pigeon Forge several times a year with my daughters and this made me stop and think about safety issues....

I have never felt the Sevier County region to be dangerous at all. That being said I use common sense. I don't leave my belongings out in my car. I watch my surroundings. As far as this story goes, it seems that there may be more to it than just some random robbery.
