Default WTF happened in LA today??

In what may be related events, someone broke into a home in Santa Monica and set it on fire, leaving two people dead. Soon thereafter, a gunman opened fire on cars and a public bus before traveling to the Santa Monica College campus and shooting in the library. He was finally arrested, but not before killing one person and injuring 3 others.

He was described as being dressed completely in black, fully armed with a tactical vest and an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, with a large amount of ammunition.

President Obama was at a fundraiser nearby earlier in the day. No idea if that's coincidental or not.

If anyone on the board is in the area, please stay safe!

ETA: Two men died in the fire, and a woman was shot in her car outside the home when he waved her on but she apparently didn't move fast enough.

This will just continue to happen - no telling where next. It's becoming a very scary world.

Horrible. That person obviously flipped a switch.

One of my closest friends lives in San Diego and he was wondering what was going on there, and if everyone had lost their mind. He said very strange people (okay he said nuts) were out in full force. Same here. It was a mad house at work last night and this week has been rather... Odd. In a bad way.

Police think the two people in the house were the killer's father and brother. So there appears to have been a personal breakdown similar to Adam Lanza, who murdered his mother before massacring those poor babies in the elementary school.

Just another mass shooting in America

I'm in the LA area. I was ALL over the news. They said 6 people were dead and one in custody. They were trying to figure out if the reports of a second shooter were valid. I don't know what happened after that as I stopped watching the news.

Too much death.

It is sad. Mass shootings here, mass bombings there, mass stabbingw over there... The world is a mess. One of my friends who lives in Chicago is so upset right now. It's like all the stories you heard about gang violence in California, in the late 80's and 90's, is going on there now. He had posted about all the shootings, some close to his apt, and then posted a story about people stabbing their infant to death in a motel not too far from him. He said, "Thats it!! I'm done! I'm moving back home to Texas".

A large portion of humanity has gone off the deep end.
