Well, screw anonymity here, this is my home town.
Since I regularly check ATS, it's funny that this is the how I discovered what happened today less than 5 minutes ago.
And also, there's another one that just happened. Can hear the cops now.
Police began investigating a shooting at a Kalamzoo County apartment building at around 7:50 p.m., in which a woman was shot several times. She is in serious condition.
About three hours later, police were called to a car dealership where two people were fatally shot and a third was wounded.
Police then received a call of a third shooting in the parking lot of a nearby Cracker Barrel restaurant where four people were shot and killed, and a fifth was wounded and in critical condition.

Craziness. Stay safe, folks on that side of the state... Hopefully they get the guy soon, preferably with nonlethal methods so they can find out why he went off his rocker. However, between the seemingly regular use of lethal force and just how those things go down, I bet that's unlikely.
