my thoughts go out to those who might have been affected by this evening’s event...

Three people were killed Wednesday night at a Colorado Walmart and no one was in custody as of 10:10 Wednesday night.

The Thornton police department asked the public to avoid the Walmart in the area of 9900 Grant Street. The alert came at about 6:30 p.m.
At 7:35 p.m., the Thornton police tweeted out it was not an active shooter situation at that time, but was an active crime scene.
At about 8 p.m., police reported two men were killed and one woman was taken to the hospital. About two hours later the woman died at the hospital.
Investigators have not released any details about the circumstances of the shooting or the condition of the injured woman.

This is precisely why we carry to defend ourselves and our loved ones.

Yet I expect a hue and cry to disarm the wrong people as a result.

Suspect taken into custody and nearby customers drew but apparently had no chance or position to return fire.

Denver Walmart Shooter - Nov 2 2017

"Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said Thursday that investigators reviewed store surveillance footage Wednesday night and saw "a few" people inside the store who drew weapons in response to the gunfire. He says the customers who pulled out guns did not slow officers' response to the crime scene."

They didn't start firing at anyone and everyone, either.

exceptionally pleasant since9 that you started a new thread, contributed the denver post’s commentary, instead of posting to the existing forum thread about the same event!
