    There is an Officer down. It was reported that an Officer exchanged fire with a gunman. The Officer was shot multiple times but managed to kill the gunman.

    Prayers are with the Officer and his family.

    Sounds like just one gunman and the event is over. Officer is expected to survive. What a hero...

    I know this is not the time or the place, but you can not seriously favor a privatized police force?

    Best wishes to all.

    Shooter is described as a white male approx 30 years old. I'm surprised. Wonder what his motivation(s) was/were?

    take this with a grain of salt, because it is just what I read on another forum, which was supposedly found out from witnesses.

    But I guess what they are saying is that the shooter was a bald, heavy set man wearing a sleeveless shirt. If thats the case, it seems to be some dumb redneck extremest who the media will use to paint a portrait of all gun owners I have no doubt.

    It's also possible the shooter confused the Shiks with Arabs/Islamists. That's happened in the past because Shiks wear turbans and beards

    I do find it "unique" that when its a white male that info is released. Otherwise the race/ethnic of suspect is "clouded"

    Prayers to all the victims and their families. Thanks to the LEO who ended it, and to all other LEO's who daily risk finding themselves in the same situation.

    Prayers to all the victims. Sikhs are very peaceful people, I know quite a few of them. Maybe they should start considering carrying. Can't wait to hear what Bloomberg will say about this one.
