Colorado – Before I was able to finish a post I was making in regards to the gunman walking into a Youth Ministry facility and opened fire, reports of the shooting a New Life Church hit the news. I decided to wait and see if there was any type of connection before actually posting about it. It is now Monday morning and while there hasn’t been an official statement in regards to the two shooting incidents being related, investigators are looking. Police Chief Don Wick, asked whether …Continue Reading
Omaha, Nebraska – Robert Hawkins killed eight people and wounded five others Wednesday at the popular Westroads Mall in Omaha, Nebraska, before committing suicide. The shooting took place mostly inside the Von Maur store. His mother found a suicide note in which he stated he wanted to go out in style. I guess his definition of style and my definition are a bit off. Going out in a blaze of glory by having a shootout with the local gang-bangers, ok. Picking a fight with the local Hell’s Angels chapter? I can go with that. But to walk into a mall during Christmas shopping and shooting innocent, unarmed people? Absolutely. Positively. Pathetic.…Continue Reading
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Christopher Erin Rogers Jr killed his father, Christopher Rogers Sr, 51, with a machete and then attacked his father’s girlfriend Elann Moren, 55. He used the machete because he could not find his father’s gun. He stated that he was angry at his family and believed they treated him poorly.
He then took his father’s truck and drove to Anchorage. He abandoned the truck, and came across Jason Wenger, 27, sitting in his vehicle in his driveway. Rogers killed him by shooting him multiple times, but fled the scene without stealing the vehicle. Rogers then spent Sunday sleeping in the woods until he shot Liz RUmsey, 33, who was walking along a trail in a upper-middle-class neighborhood. He asked her for the time and then shot her in the back when she looked â€œnervous.â€ He then shot Tamas Deak, 43, multiple times during his second car-jacking attempt before leading police through a short car chase through morning rush hour. He was stopped after police rammed his vehicle.
Rogers has a long history of trouble with the law, including charges of harassment, driving under the influence, assault and arson.…Continue Reading
Wisconsin – As usual, as more time passes, more information is coming out in regards to Tyler Peterson and his hissy-fit he had with his AR-15 rifle. The conflict was in regards to his ex-girlfriend and him thinking that she was messing around with one of the people at the house. After confronting his girlfriend at the house, the argument became heated. He went out to his car, grabbed his rifle, then went back in firing 30 shots. Six people died, with the seventh victim surviving only because he played dead after being shot 3 times, even after begging Tyler to stop shooting him.
Tyler then drove around, made false police reports, visited friends and family informing them of what he had done before ending up at a cabin. After a shootout with the police, in which Tyler may have been shot in the arm by a police sniper, Tyler then shot himself in the head with his .40-caliber Glock, THREE FRIGGIN’ TIMES!
“The three gunshot wounds to the head included two nonfatal rounds with entry points below the chin, and one fatal shot that entered Peterson through the right side of the head,” Attorney General J.B.…Continue Reading
