This is a horrible thing but did you somehow expect that no persons in this would would commit murder today? Was that your standard for expectations for humanity at the start of this day?

Think about events like this, don't dwell on the negative.

Well, I mean, I wasn't expecting a 24 hour period of world peace, but I was desperately hoping nobody would be hurt or killed today "in the name" of the election.

Wtf... I live in Glendora, the neighboring city! This isn't contained yet is it???

It wife is going to vote today around 5. I'm scared.

Dude's barricaded himself in a residence. Don't think you'd need to worry too much, at least not from this same assailant.

Terrible.

Side note: causality means an injury or death as a result of an incident, so there's 4 known casualties, one known fatality. One of the most misused words in these threads.

I live 2 blocks away. I hear helicopters everywhere. The gunfire was definitely heard and my dogs went under the table hiding...

How terrible. This is not the America we should ever cultivate through hate and fear of the other.

We are making assumptions at this moment that it is election related, maybe it's not.

I wish I could feel surprised.

I'm glad this election is almost over but God damn we have a ton of messed up trash psychos in this country.

I don't have numbers to back this up but I have a hunch there haven't really been an uptick in mass shootings as a result of this election. They have felt like a daily occurrence for many years now.

I blame Trump for this and his calling for intimidating people at the polls.

I know you're excited for your narrative but...


It's not looking that likely.

Please let that source of a second suspect be false. If there is another shooter, please let everyone living there be safe.
