In today’s Shannon’s Scoop we talk about a free gas giveaway in the D, an active shooter on Saturday at comedian Craig Robinson’s comedy show in North Carolina, and Bennifer is finally officially married!
Even though gas prices continue to drop across Metro-Detroit, I think we could all still use a little help at the pump, right? Well, according to wxyz.com, there is a free gas giveaway today at the Shell gas station on 8 Mile and Coolidge in Oak Park beginning at 2pm. But, you’ve got to be one of the first 500 cars in line in order to score $40 worth of gas for your gas tank. While you’re there, be sure to give a BIG thank you to the non-profit Prophetic World Group who raised $20,000 over the past few months in order to pass along these savings and blessings to the community!
Well, you may recognize Craig Robinson as Darryl from The Office or from the hit movie Hot Tub Time Machine, but he was in the headlines for a different and very scary reason over the weekend. According to The Washington Post, he had a comedy set scheduled on Saturday at the Comedy Zone in Charlotte, North Carolina when an armed gunman entered the building. He pointed the gun at patrons of the show and told everyone to exit the venue. As attendees fled, the shooter discharged his weapon. Luckily Craig was in his dressing room and was sent to another location while the the shooter, Omar McCombs, was arrested on-site. Luckily, no-one sustained any injuries.
Finally! Bennifer made it down the aisle, twenty years in the making! Jennifer Lopez said I-do to Ben Affleck on Saturday at the famous Little Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. According to People.com, she wore a Zuhair Murad dress and Ben wore a white tuxedo jacket as they exchanged vows in front of a very small group of witnesses. J.Lo said in a newsletter, which she signed Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck, “Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with. Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things-and worth waiting for.” Congrats to the happy couple!
