    Wow. We went a whole five days without a mass shooting.

    Interesting, at this time they are saying there were multiple shooters. Were they shooting at each other or was this a terror attack?

    Almost every mass shooting starts off with coverage about a potential number of shooters. Covering these things in real time always results in speculation and confusing claims making it to air/print.

    That’s not to say there aren’t multiple people, it’s just too early to *actually* know what’s going on.

    I know, that is why I said “at this time they are saying”.

    Now I’m seeing reports of 22 “injured”. So maybe the death toll will come down.

    Depending if the Walmart or Mall is a gun free zone.

    What a sad thing... hopefully we'll know more soon about the motive before people start bickering about it.

    Sometimes in the frenzy of things people hear "casualties" and understand it as "fatalities". Hopefully this is the case and the body count will be lower.

    I am going to play armchair psychologist, but what the shooter wrote on LinkedIn is the description of a serious problem young men (*) are facing and everyone is ignoring.

    (*) so this idiot decided to go from "young man" to "filthy animal".

    Being named as Patrick Crusius on Twitter. 21 year old Trump fan with a particular disliking for Mexicans it seems. :(

    Wait for police for this particular. On my feed I got the exact opposite (with even a screenshot from a "social media")...

    Apparently it's fake (and some are sharing the Manifesto of the NZ shooting using this idiot's name claiming that it was his). Not saying that he wasn't what you claim he is, just saying to wait until further info before giving a name to the reason for this heinous act made by the idiot.

    There's a manifesto circulating on 8chan, but it hasn't been verified to be from him.

    Not surprised he was a young male aged 18-25. That seems to be common to most of these (though not all, of course). The rest we'll wait on but it should be interesting.
