    Someone really wanted that building to go up.
     

  2. Crazy story... I just saw the blurb video on Fox and the FD spokesman only spoke about the wounded fireman who drove himself from the scene. No mention at all about the 2 that had were killed... The title of the story indicated 2 were killed, the anchor presented it as 2 firefighters killed, but no details.

    I am interested it what they find out about the fire, the gunman, and the origin of the weapon... I think unfortunately this will be a painfully obvious trifecta of stupidity. Arson to cover a crime, a repeat felon behind the gun, and a gun that was less than legally obtained.

    Ptayers to the families of the fallen.

    I’m sure it was a band of Democrats hyped up on big gulps they smuggled in from a Wawa in Jersey.

  5. Yeah that's the headline here on Fox and Yahoo, but no details yet. I hope they catch the gunman alive for a change. I'm tired of these idiots taking the easy way out.

    Again, prayers to the families...and Godsspeed to the cops, get that guy!

    during "civil unrest" of the '60s.

    I was expecting it to be in the projects somewhere in NYC. Apparently this is not the case.

    Hope they find this guy, or guys, and give them a needle.

    Rabid dogs need to be put down.
     
  9. This is an awful thing. I cannot imagine stepping out of the rig and being fired upon at 0600 on Christmas Eve.
     
  10. One suspect is in custody

  12. One of the deceased was also a LT. in the Webster PD. The Police Chief had to choke back tears in the press conference. All of these guys are volunteers.

    It appears that the shooter killed himself.

    This didn't really happened. Must be a mistake.
    Mayor Bloomberg assured us that cities like NY who ban guns are safer than cities who don't.

    Just reported on Fox News ... No idea if the weapon used was the type of assault rifle people have been talking about. Wow!

    Webster is actually a fairly rural community in upstate NY. All of us New Yorkers aren't downstate, big city folks. 2 firefighters dead, 2 wounded in guarded condition. Had a firefighter who was on scene say that it may have been another firefighter that did the shooting although nothing of that sort had been said in the news so it's speculation as of right now.

    Guy this is not NY city. This is a up scale town in western NY on lake Ontario .west Webster is a very nice place to live just minutes from Rochester.

    This murder set a trap to kill fire fighters.

    Two brave heroes are dead. At least two more are shot. The murder is dead. Six plus houses are burning .


    Sad sad day here in Rochester.
