7/17/12: ALABAMA BAR SHOOTING 17 INJURED; SUSPECT ON THE RUN

17 Jul

A mass shooting was reported this morning at a bar in Tuscaloosa Alabama, with as many as 17 people shot and at least 2 are listed in critical condition.  Police authorities released video footage of the suspect holding a gun and slowly walking away.

Parents were horrified to hear of the shooting, because the bar is frequented by many University of Alabama students. There have been no arrests as of yet and the reason for the gunman firing at the crowd is still under investigation.

The local newspaper quoted senior, Tiley Dunn, from the University stating, “We were all just shooting pool and hanging out.  It was kind of loud from the music, but we heard the gun shot and no one really knew what to think. The first gunshot took place, then about 20 seconds later, then that’s when he really started firing them off. After that everyone really scattered.”

Why would anyone go on a shooting rampage in a bar?  Have people lost their minds?
