Does anyone know what all happened? Is the victim alive?

This is a terribly sad situation for all involved. Two beautiful young people lost their father, and have to come to terms with that. They need to find a way to forgive their grandfather & move forward in a very terrible situation. I'd like to think that we can keep rude comments to ourselves and consider the feelings of those involved most closely.

Rumor has it that the victim didn't make it, and that the alleged victim is the owner of Togi's and that his father in law is the alleged shooter,as for it being a drug deal gone wrong I don't think so.

They are saying the Steve Stidd shot Mel Bazzaro. Father-in-law shot Son-in-Law

I heard from my family that live right by the scene that it was most likely a family/business dispute. I wont mention any names because I wouldn't want to discover a loved one has passed away here. The victim is deceased. The shooter never left the scene.

Sympathy and Prayers for the Families involved...Judge NOT lest thee be judged...

Steve was totally right for protecting himself.

Steve is a wonderful man, you obviously don't know him. Details have not been released

The father in law (Steve Stidd) shot and killed his son in law (Mel Bizzaro)

Anonymous said...

Helicopter has been cancelled... Means, victim did not make it

Anonymous said...

No. Not a drug deal 10:07. Hearsay has it that Steve Stidd shot his son-in-law, Mel Bizzaro. Medical helicopter was cancelled and reports say that the coroner was on the scene. Shooter and firearm are secure in custody. Just waiting to hear more/confirm.

Steve was the shooter. The victim did not survive. It was not a drug deal gone bad.

No one will know what the entire situation is until the FACTS come to light (not the "facts" we are hearing on Facebook!). I've known BOTH individuals my entire life, and it's a sad, horrific event for all involved. I can't believe that people find humor in such a situation, what if it was your family members?

Anonymous said...

The shooter was protecting himself from the person whom he shot. He went to speaK to him about an issue the the deceased was beating on him. He warned the deceased to stop and he didn't so he shit him.

Nobody knows yet what led to the shooting, before passing judgment realize there are 2 sides to this and unfortunately are all in one family. Prayers for all involved

To make snap judgements and hurtful comments is UNACCEPTABLE! Tragedy can strike anyone for any reason and change your life forever. I don't know these people but my heart goes out to all the families involved. There are no winners here. Lets remember that the surviving family members are grieving and in shock. They don't need rude comments. None of you who are doing this would like it if it was YOU or YOURS!!

Solomon's words for the wise said...

Many of you have sent comments posting the name of the victim who was fatally shot in this incident. We have suppressed those comments until an official statement is released.

Where is ppl's compassion???

Anonymous said...

Prayers to all involved, as far as shootings in Bradford, there have been a few but not enough to say this is an every day occurrence, as for drugs yeah there are a lot of them here, which law enforcement is doing an excellent job at trying to control them.

Anonymous said...

The court doc shows only one charge and 10%/$10K bail was already posted. No drugs.

Anonymous said...

One of my first impressions of Bradford was several years ago. A friend of mine and I went to Bradford to see what all the hype of the :big city: was about. We got there and near McD's were these girls looking to be in grade school smoking like a factory chimney. We drove a few blocks more and there was this man flip flopping on the sidewalk like a fish out of water having a seizure. Needless to say we left with a mindset of never going back.

Anonymous said...

children have lost a father and a grandfather can you relate to that stop judging and assuming this is just so sad to read all of these comments

Anonymous said...

Anyone explain the "Mel" on the bullets?

Anonymous said...

I am guessing MEL on bullets is from last time Mel beat him up. I am guessing Stidd did not forget

The world has changed, people have no compassion for any person or animal. We are destroying our world.

Corruption in Bradford said...

10 grand for bail I didn't know there was bail on homicide if there is shouldn't it be 100 200 300 I mean the guy could afford it but I bet you don't even go to trial

Anonymous said...

I wonder why if ppl don't like the comments posted in a blog such as this than why do they read them... and then comment themselves?? Its a blog ppl, public opinion(s) are all over this thing because that is what a blog is....duh. The incident in Bradford is very sad. Sending positive energy that way...for that is all I can do to help.

Anonymous said...

So tell me where is this Mayberry town you are from ?

Anonymous said...

Yes bail can be sent for certain circumstances. His bail was set at $100,000.00. And had to pay $10,000.00 of it.I would assume the reason for bail being set, would be because of the prior problems with the one he shot. To me it would be like a woman shooting her husband, from being beaten, and several of those women are realesed with bail as they should be.

If any of you knew the sorrow and anguish our family is going through you may not be so quick to judge. May none go you ever experience this. Please stop being so mean.

This should be removed its a threat

Why do you allow vulgar comments against Steve Stidd going against your own rules especially without both sides of the story..there are children and grandchildren involved here who all want him home and safe including the ones that lost there father..do you have no respect at all? I guess not seeing how you all people to write burn in hell how would you like it if it was wrote about you or your family member? Ohwait you would block it then wouldn't you..well I hope you grow some respect instead of being a low life gossip like everyone else in this town..this family needs peace and you are not helping in any way just hindering...so from this point on please have a little more appreciation..everyone deserves the news but accurate and in judged news so I'm begging you please choose more unbias comments to post for respect at least of the children involved
