On the heels of the shooting during a live news broadcast in Virginia this morning, I just saw that there's a report of multiple shooting victims including at least one police officer in Sunset, La.

Sunset appears to be in St. Landry Parish. The initial report stated there was an officer down with agencies en route to the scene. It was then updated to say multiple victims including LE.

Will update as it develops. What a batcrap crazy Wednesday.

It was a mobile link and I tried to edit that so it was desktop friendly. Reallyfolks' link works.

There appears to be multiple scenes, with victims being transported by both ambulance and LifeFlight. Subject is barricaded in a mini-mart and a standoff has ensued.

ETA - subject has 8 hostages. 3 victims so far.

What the hell is wrong with people lately?

Getting tired of hearing about all this violence. At least there is no video posted online for everyone to 'ooh and ahh' over.

Injuries to wounded still unknown but officer was "responsive" at the scene.

They're there. Here's the Twitchy

Suspect drove a car through the mini-mart then shot.

ETA:


Law enforcement personnel are communicating with the suspect. The St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Department and Louisiana State Police have approached the scene in full-body armor, including helmets, camouflage and automatic weapons. [Source]

Don't know what's the seeming increase of these incidents, other than now and in your face media reporting. The common vein in these shootings seem to center on the perp being wronged(real or imagined), psychological problems, striving to be a media blip, or targeting LE.

Today is truly a dark news day, and is sure to be repeated in the future.

CNN is reporting that the officer was responding to a domestic disturbance call. Two people were stabbed at a residence and the officer was shot at the Exxon the subject is now barricaded inside.

CNN is reporting 3 people escaped the gas station and there are NO hostages now....?

Police have gassed the building and the local sheriff says they're "fixing to make entry into the building."

ETA - subject is still alive, sheriff says they can hear him coughing and sneezing from the gas.

ETA 2 - subject's brother in law is on scene trying to talk him out

It might be an important issue, as there are certain groups in the u.s. that are or have suggested that 10,000 caucasians should be shot and killed in response to the deaths of black community members..

all kinds of groups calling for all kinds of stuff. Those attempting better hope they pick unarmed people to try and as always be willing to give up their own life in the attempt. Between the nation of Islam, kkk and the rest of the stupid race groups, surprised , all things considering, it's not worse.

Suspect is now in custody.

State Police colonel says they had to breach the building to get the subject. They used sledgehammers axes and gas to get to him.

Fingers crossed there are no fatalities.
This stuff really needs to be addressed.

Just to add thank god the sheriff seems to be a human being. It surely makes a change from the usual designation of police killer/terminator.
