Shots Fired at Santa Monica College

Multiple injuries. The suspect is down. Oh, and the President is in town.

(Trying to get more info.)

Reports are saying that the gunman was shooting at passing cars.

Traffic is a bitch in that part of town, especially on a Friday afternoon. With this shooting and the President having a luncheon a few blocks away, then you might as well park your car and take a long nap.

Trip out. I'll be going to SMC next weekend for an exam. Glad it wasn't today.

Now being reported that there "may" be two gunmen. Multiple victims down.

All the local networks have broken into their regular programming to cover the story except NBC which is showing the 2013 French Open.

I've only been down to that area once, saw two cops with their guns pulled on multiple people on the knees with helicopters circling overhead.

So this story doesn't really "shock" me, bad first impressions y'know?

My Brother is in that area and he posted on his FB page that a friend of his got her car hit and a bullet barley missed her. I'm wondering if it's the car pictured above.

3 people were shot in that car. Also they've found 2 bodies in a burned out house nearby.

Re: Shots Fired at Santa Monica College

I've been a student at SMC for the past three years. I just finished a few weeks ago. A few of my friends got stuck in lockdown. This is absolutely insane.

Graduation is supposed to take place tonight. Last I heard it was still going forward, but this was back when there were three deceased. Now, that number is up to six. Seven, if you count the gunman.

The police have now amended their report and reduced the number of fatalities to 5.

Perhaps by this time tomorrow the body count will be even less.

I have that same car seat in my car right now. That's kind of spooky.

But I thought they have laws to prevent this.

Re: Shots Fired at Santa Monica College

This is why you shouldn't text in one hand while having a gun in the other. People can get killed.
