I received some bad and frightening news Friday afternoon: A former employee of WDIV-TV was shot inside the entrance to the station’s studios in downtown Detroit (where I worked in the late 90’s). The victim, John Owens, is in critical but stable condition and may have to undergo another surgery this weekend. Please pray that he recovers quickly.
