Alexandria police said earlier Wednesday they were responding to a "multiple shooting" in the city. The tweet also said the suspect is in custody.


CNN says he is in custody not dead. Things will probably change a few times before we get the correct story though.

Fox saying "one report says the shooter was shot & has been taken to a local hospital"

Now reports of 50-100 shots.

Looks as if the guy may have been targeting Republicans.

Rep Ron Desantis is saying someone walked up to them at the basbeall field and asked if they were Republicans or Democrats.

Obviously this man is angry with the Republican party.


Yep - just heard that too.


Not sure exactly where he was aporoached. Saying he was approached in a parking lot now?

This is very sad. Like em or hate em, they don't deserve to be mowed down. I wouldn't wish this on the Dems, either.

Crazy a$$ people out there!!

50 to 100 shots? That peaks my skepticism. Armed guards around. Are they the slowest people in town? Guy has to lug and reload ammo how many times?

This question warrants a "simple" explanation. I think it would be safe to assume that hate and/or anger was the motivation.

TPTB: What's that you say? Comey exonerated Trump and implicated Loretta Lynch?
Stooge: Yes, that's correct.
TPTB: We need a really good, really solid distraction.
Stooge: We could stage another terrorist attack in France.
TPTB: No... that's been overdone. Besides, we've flooded Europe with so many migrants to the point where we don't even have to stage attacks anymore, they carry them out on their own without any direction.
Stooge: True. *long pause* Hey, I have an idea!
TPTB: An idea you say?
Stooge: What if we sparked up that civil war we've had on the back burner for the past few decades?
TPTB: Yes, that sounds good. I'm thinking a politically motivated hit, one that sends a subliminal yet somehow explicit message to our opposition whilst taking the attention away from Trump's lack of criminality.
Stooge: I'll calibrate the psychotronic device and place the order in with the CIA to procure an Oswald.

And then everything goes according to plan.

Pay very close attention, the Rep/Dem dichotomy is merely a distraction.

I hope to God this is related to an affair, mob hit because of back dealing, or even a high profile rub out.

Anything instead of a political revenge killing.

If those start up we can just chuck this timeline right out the window. This is the alternate reality where that happens.

Prayers for the victims, justice for all.


EDIT TO ADD:
Never mind, its my worst fears come true.

I have to be honest. I am officially scared.

That depends on what rifle and what kind of magazine, if any, it was capable of being loaded with.

For example, fifty shots with some kind of bolt action rifle, either 5 or 10 round box fed, would be laborious. But some kind of AK or AR, with a fifty or one hundred round drum magazine slapped in it, would make the whole process easier and quicker, especially if the shooter had modified the rifle for ease of handling with that particular magazine. There are things that can be done to triggers, for example, to make them smoother to operate, choices of bolt that can be made which improve reliability and ease of control.

There are many variables.

Then he must not be from there, because everyone knows it is the republicans practice, according to an interview.

The irony is that lawmakers to both parties engaging in sports competition seems like such a healthy way to interact...blow off steam, compete in a fun and bonding manner.
