Yeah, too early to know.

And the media will air any unsubstantiated story just to be the first to get it out.

Sounds familiar...

show some respect? for who? the dead? they're dead. they don't care. the police? no. on recent evidence they are likely to be formulating 'the truth' about this incident into the final 'approved' (fabricated) version. they are not to be trusted. i say speculate away. strike while the iron is hot.

I was just thinking the same thing about the gun laws in the city. So hows that working out for you NY. See laws don't prevent bad people from doing illegal things....


Good point,

Hard to try and argue stricter gun laws when a shooting occurs in an already strict city.

You I suspect, actually.

You might think it's cool to be the "first" to come out and claim it's a conspiracy, but there are zero details and people are dead.

Show some respect.


How many shootings is it going to take until people open their eyes?

Fabricate your own version eh?

How about at least waiting for the dust to settle?

Too many are like a bunch of vultures circling for a piece of conspiracy glory!

How about you slow your criticism of members on this site a little.Yes people are speculating, because there is very little information to go on at this point. Every possibility is still on the table, whether you like it or not.

Reports suggesting that the Police shot dead the gunman...

8 people shot, 3 or 4 are confirmed dead.

Yea but why does the majority of speculation have to be pointed at conspiracy.

1. Guns are already banned in New York.

2. Violent crime has always been in New York.

This is nothing new. Lack of information does not mean conspiracy. It just means that cops are probably still at the scene, removing the bodies, collecting evidence and cleaning up. Like I said, wait until the evening news and every thing will be made clear.

SCREEN SHOTS!

This seems to be happening a lot lately and the stories seem to change daily. If your computer has the ability take screen shots so later once they have an official story we'll have something to go off of

Open their eyes to what?

The faceless and nameless PTB engineered all shootings did they?

Or, this is another piece of the stricter gun laws that are coming?

Sure...

You'd be a fool to think a mass shooting in an already strictly controlled city is going to strengthen the gun law cause.

It weakens it.

This website is claiming it started as an attempted robbery.


Of the nine victims, one was a 32-year-old woman who was shot in the leg. The extent of the injuries for the other victims is unclear.

Not all the victims were found at the intesection of 34th Street and 5th Avenue. Police continued to discover more victims in the area along 33rd Street and Fifth Avenue.

All victims are being transported to Bellevue Hospital, and two of them are listed in stable condition.

I'll slow it when they act more concerned with the events going on rather than being concerned with being the first to "call it".

"Gotta get them kudos!"

I was hoping that it would have been a citizen with gun rights or something. I wonder why people do not start rushing the fools who try to kill people in public places? Oh the spin on this one. As if it takes solely an armed police officer to stop the mayhem.
