If you're not involved in the drug trade & aren't a member of a gang, the odds of you being shot & killed are very small. Serial killers few & far between. They get a lot of media/public attention because they are so rare. If you look for trouble & engage in risky, illegal activities, it will come back to bite you on your derriere.
