No active search for a shooter???

No hunt for an active shooter? Dead?

Four people were shot and killed Thursday at a St. Louis business, police said.

Killing is his business, and business is good.

Murders\suicide maybe.

No one had been taken into custody by mid-afternoon, said Schron Jackson, spokesperson for St. Louis Police Department.

KTVI said that police have recovered a gun and that there was no active search for a shooter.

Sounds like either he shot himself, or someone with a gun shot him.

I realize this is news and people have died and all, but I wouldn't really call this a "mass" shooting.  Newsflash tag unwarranted.

Don't interrupt my American Idol with anything less than 10 fatalities.

You know, I don't really see this as a "mass" shooting. There were not large crowds of people targeted for indiscriminate violence.

There are larger gang shootouts that aren't covered by the media. The whole point is to make you think that this could happen to you, at any time, without warning, but is that really what this is? It sounds to me more like a personal dispute arising from business.

3 = mass, apparently

Ya, they said they're not looking for a shooter, and don't have anyone in custody, and have recovered a gun. Either someone shot these people, dropped their gun and ran, or the shooter is one of the deceased.

What political party did he belong to?  This is vitally important.

Homicide. Double Homocide. Triple Homocide. Is a "Mass Shooting" four homocides or more?

Yes, and you fixed it badly.
 
2013-06-13 04:28:49 PM
I mean no disrespect.

But if the cops recovered a gun, and there's no active pursuit of a shooter, AND four dead....that means one of the dead is the shooter.

Which leaves three victims. Still a horrible murder-type situation, but lets be honest here...if you ain't pushin' double digits in your victim count, I don't think you qualify for 'mass shooter'.

Killer? Yes. Asshole? Probably. Can we find a good middle ground though? Multiple-homicider perhaps?

Forget the 4th amendment, we need to deal with the 2nd, fast.

Almost twenty years ago I listened to an interview with an FBI profiling top guy (can't remember who).  He talked about his research and carjacking as an example.  Basically from their crime statistics it followed that the more the media hyped a story, shortly thereafter there would a dramatic spike in similar crimes.  He didn't have a great answer for the problem but definitely laid some of this at the feet of the new 24hr news channels.  It is a never ending tractor-pull.

Basically, we should all just hide in holes.

That's called "a day that ends in -y" here in Detroit.

Pants full of macaroni!!: What political party did he belong to?  This is vitally important.



I think it's more important to speculate as to what motivations the media has for reporting it, or whether magazine restrictions, assault weapons ban, waiting periods or background checks could have possibly prevented it.
 
2013-06-13 04:31:06 PM
I don't know but maybe we need to redefine a MASS of people. To me a Mass Shooting means more than 10 all in the same room. When we start using it to describe shooting sprees..that involve less than that..and this was what 4 people. I mean honestly. Is that a mass? Yes, I know everything is mass or takes up mass BUT still.

Sounds like somebody picked the wrong day to ask "What's a business incubator?"
 
2013-06-13 04:31:29 PM
I submitted this with a funnier and more grammatically-correct headline.
 
2013-06-13 04:31:44 PM
Oh and it's also important for someone to come in here and say that if they had been present, they would have heroically dropped the shooter on the spot with their trusty [whatever gun they regularly carry].

And we also need someone to blame the business owner for not having a "good guy with a gun" on site.

Solution: more guns. Right?

Could be a suicide pact and they all killed themselves.

Meh, does 4 people (one of them the perpetrator) count as a "mass" shooting?

Maybe if they were in a church....

Jument: Solution: more guns. Right?


no, the solution is more laws that would in no way have prevented this shooting or the next one.  Right?
 
2013-06-13 04:34:13 PM
So, how many more lives need to be needlessly cut short? It's nigh time we ban these weapons.

It could have been that, or a number of different things.  But it's BREAKING NEWS that I'm sure all of the 24 hr news networks are covering right now with their full complement of asshole pundits, who are wildly speculating as to all sorts of bullshiat.
