I'm from Lynchburg, VA and it's not much to do here.

I live in Lynchburg actually in the city. We hear sirens every night. There are shootings and stabbings every week and Channel 13 doesn't report any of it. Channel 7 out of Roanoke lets people know whats going on. I think Lynchburg in general needs to be better informed.

There was a shooting at the hospital last night.
