3 shot and 1 hatcheted at a gay bar

from 365gay.com
-------------------------------------
(Boston, Massachusetts) A young man with blonde hair and wearing a black coat walked into Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, Massachusetts early Thursday morning, calmly pulled out a gun and began firing.

There were 18 people in the bar at the time.

Witnesses accounts of what transpired vary. Some people said that the man also was armed with an axe. Others say he had a machete and hatchet.

A bartender told local media that the man asked if the the club was gay and if there were any other gay bars in town. Then he began shooting.

Other witnesses said that the attacker hit a man with the hatchet first and as customers tried to subdue him he began shooting.

Police are still gathering witness accounts.

At least three people were shot - two were shot in the face, the third in the chest. A fourth person was hit on the head with the axe or hatchet.

The gunshot victims were airlifted to Boston hospitals. The fourth victim was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford.

Their conditions have not been released.

Following the attack the man quietly walked out of the club and has not been seen since.

Man attacks with hatchet and gun in Mass. gay bar

31 minutes ago

BOSTON (Reuters) - An 18-year-old man opened fire in a Massachusetts' gay bar and attacked patrons with a hatchet, wounding three people, police said on Thursday.

The attack at Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, a city about 58 miles south of Boston, took place around midnight on Wednesday and was being treated as an apparent hate crime.

Police said the man entered the bar, ordered a drink and asked the bartender if he was in a gay bar. When told that it was, he reached into his coat and pulled out a hatchet and attacked the man next to him.

As patrons attempted to restrain him, he drew a gun and fired several shots, wounding two people, police said.

Two of the wounded were airlifted to a Boston hospital.

The gunman fled. Police later identified him as Jacob Robida, an 18-year-old described as extremely violent. They said he was wanted for three counts of attempted murder and hate crimes related to the attack.

New Bedford was also the scene of another high-profile bar attack -- the 1983 gang rape of a woman whose case inspired the 1988 movie "The Accused" starring Jodie Foster.



But, it doesn't say if he was arrested yet.

Regarding the 'Christian' comment, I was going to make the comment that this person will probably site the Bible as justification for his actions.

Let me make this very clear, this is not the way Jesus Christ would handle this situation.

In John : 8 when a woman who committed adultry is brought before Jesus, the leaders say that the Law of Moses commands that she should be stoned to death. Jesus replied to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." They all began to leave and Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"

11"No one, sir," she said.

"Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."



This is how a follower of Christ should handle this situation. Not with guns and machete's.

Chris

Agreed. If he does try to use Christianity, then he is one of the fringe lunatics.

But doesn't that contradict Matthew 37:23?

And Jesus said, "If a man should go into a house of wines and spirits, and inquire that it was for the purpose of meeting men that lie with other men, and be told yes, then that man should hatchet a motherfucker in the face."
