Shoots nine but somehow TWELVE are injured? How many of these locations have grassy knolls?
 
2021-06-18 2:45:26 AM  
Isn't there an app for this yet.
 
2021-06-18 2:46:22 AM  
It all happened at the same place, Earth.

In conclusion, it's a mass shooting.

There are better, more applicable ways to describe events like this. I see the 2016 Kalamzoo Shootings, in which Jason Dalton, an Uber driver, drove around and shot people in various places, described as a "shooting spree" and "shooting rampage", both of which better indicates shootings in multiple places.

Probably not a lot, they're pretty rare.  Especially since the article mentions the extras are thing like broken glass injuries and a car crash.

Serial killer?

No, subby, that's a Hollywood action movie.

Trick question.  What were the races of the victims and the shooter?  We don't have enough info to determine the answer.
 
2021-06-18 3:26:42 AM  
It's a Schrodinger's Mass Shooting.  First, I have to decide on what narrative I want to push.  Once I've determined whether or not citing this event as a mass shooting will help or hinder my preconceived political preferences, the wave function collapses, and we'll be able to determine whether it was a mass shooting or not.

Where exactly did they bury the survivors?

I was gonna post for team spree, but...

Shootinany! Its got everything I look for in describing murder spread out across multiple locations when it doesn't involve me or anyone I know!!

Make applesauce.
 
2021-06-18 4:21:44 AM  
It may surprise you all, but this was pretty damn serious. The area the shooting happened in a very decent part of Phoenix. It literally blocked three major roads out of Surprise Arizona.  The three main roads out of supplies 303 grand and Bell roads.

As a delivery person, I could not do my job today.If this was the same person who did all this, they  covered at least ten miles.

Just get it over with and start calling mass shootings a Murica. Doesn't really matter where they happen.

"Did you hear about the Murica in South Korea last night?".

See, it works everywhere.

Those three cities are all Phoenix.  Also yes, that's a mass shooting.

Soon to follow:  Gun Nut Farkers show up and use the language debate to distract us, rather than possible gun legislation. They drive us all away, and when we're gone, discuss fun issues like stopping power, where to buy conversion kits, etc.

Got to admire the hustle at least. Traffic out that way is a bear.

In 90 minutes, not one cop could find this guy? Between Peoria and Glendale?

Or, if in the Philippines, known as "running amok".
 
2021-06-18 6:47:45 AM  
Technically, that would be a spree shooting.

nah, a "Murica" is when you go to an anti-vax protest and proclaim on national news that "conservative voices" are being silenced.

It is, but the hand-wringing over the terminology is often simply part of disingenuous distraction and attempts to shift the narrative of guns run amuck.

2021-06-18 7:47:49 AM  
Article says 4 shot.

King Something:

That there is a shooting spree.  See, he's combined the murderous event into two events, flight and murder.  Very difficult.

Now whether that there is a sub genre of American societal dysfunction or a separate species is yet unknown, but is a distinction without a difference.
 
2021-06-18 8:08:07 AM  
No, it makes him a serial killer.
 
2021-06-18 8:37:41 AM  
So, .25 or .380? 100:1 says the front sight was a fake diamond.

Sooo if I get my gun legally I'm allowed to go on a shooting spree?
Or maybe the guy had a shoot one shoot 8 free coupon?
No no it's obviously he was cleaning his gun and it kept going off

Trick question:

If he's a black guy, he's simply rising against oppression in a mostly peaceful manner.  If killed by a police officer at any time, it's an exhibition of the racism inherent in the system.

If he's a white guy, he's a white supremacist racist Trump fan.  Democratic caucus press conference in 3 . . 2 . . 1 .  . ...

Alliteration for the win!!!!

And as for whether or not it's a mass shooting, it would be up to what definition of "close by" they use for where they all happened.  Only 4 people were actually shot.  The others were injured by the car, or other things as they were avoiding getting shot or run over.  If all 4 victims are considered to be "near" each other, then yes, it's officially a mass shooting.  If they determine they aren't close to each other, then it's officially not a mass shooting.

Hypothetical question:  If I fire one bullet, and it passes through 3 people's arms before killing the fourth person, is it a mass shooting?  According to the "rules" for how to define it, it probably is.
