History Edit

The Darkness Edit

Crane & Extine Bombing Edit

The News Watch 6 reporter Jane Unger brought extensive coverage on latest on the Crane & Extine bombing. She revealed that police officials have dismissed the bombing as a random incident. Although Captain Eddie Shrote was unavailable for comment, the news managed to contact Lieutenant Gomer over the phone. Gomer believed that the bombing was part of a feud between two small-time gangs. The police suspected that a foreign criminal organization was involved in the laundering of drug money for the Craine & Extine construction company.

The Lieutenant believed that they will have all the suspects involved in this incident captured by the next day. He also told the reporter that claims of a lone gunman sighted at the scene were just crack-pot theories. Jane Unger then quickly questioned Gomer if this investigation won't affect Shrote's upcoming election campaign. Gomer answered that this won't affect Shrote in any way and if citizens want to keep the street clean of violence they should keep him in the office for the next term.

Saint Mary's Orphanage Fire Edit

The News Watch 6 reported about the massive firefighting operation in Saint Mary's Orphanage after someone detonates a bomb there. The reporter on the scene, Matt Devon told Jane Unger about the massive fire at the orphanage. Although at first believed to be a terrorist attack, Eddie Shrote soon quelled the reports. Instead he said that the explosion was likely the result of a gas leak and that there's currently no suspicion of criminal activity having been involved in this accident. Then another explosion went off and the reporter was asked to leave the area as it was not safe for them to be there.
