Bend Developer shot by wife.

We need the old bubble blogs, I tell you!

I just don't feel like I want to comment on this story:

From KTVZ:

A well-known Bend developer was shot and critically wounded by his wife at their home on Bend’s Westside early Wednesday. Police said she told officers she was awakened by a noise and sent her husband to investigate, then thought he was an intruder.Stephen Trono, 60, was in critical condition at midday at St. Charles Medical Center-Bend, officials said.Bend police Lt. Ben Gregory said officers were called to a home on Mount Shasta Drive, off Shevlin Park Road, on a report a man had been shot. Angelicque Trono, 39, was awakened by a noise and sent her husband to investigate, Gregory said.“At some point, Stephen was shot by Angelicque, who (said she) thought her husband was an intruder,”

"In late 2005, he proposed the Mercato, a mixed-use project in the Old Mill District, on the site of the Brooks-Scanlon “crane shed” torn down amid controversy by the site’s previous owner, Crown Investment Group.But the project stalled as the real estate market and economy soured, and Medford’s PremierWest Bank filed suit in March against Trono and his firm, seeking repayment of the loan securing the property, modified several times and totaling 3.8 million.

On The Trono Company’s Website, which listed an “expected completion date” of the Mercato project of last summer, it said Trono and his wife of 16 years “are the proud parents of five children ... and serve their community by helping multiple charities and churches in Bend and across the Pacific to the Philippines.”

The background statement concluded: “What we vividly imagine, ardently believe and pursue with joy and determination, will inevitably occur.”

I don't know anyone who would go out on a prowler search and leave the gun with the wife? Or if they did (there are more than one gun in our bedroom) be sure to tell her that you are going to verbally announce yourself b4 returning and framing yourself in the doorway and tell her for God's sake to have some fire discipline.

Does this mean the Mercato will be delayed?

KTVZ now reporting Trono was shot "at least five times" in the stomach.

Wife's story looking kinda fishy.

I know they're not trying for the funny, but KTVZ's headlines make me wince:

"Developer shot by wife; neighbors shocked."

Or this one today, headline followed by first line:

"Wife Shot Bend Developer Six Times,"

"Whatever he's doing, he's doing it 110 percent..."

What the....?
