well it seem they are not quite sure yet if a shooting occured....but saying it didnt from a lack of shell casings does not seem wise as not all guns eject casings(revolvers,double barrel shot guns)so i guess we will just have to hope it was a false alarm with a starter pistol like they seem to think but who knows in this day and age
Some residents in Newport Beach reported hearing what sounded like gunshots near Fashion Island on Wednesday, but police say they found no evidence of a shooting. A few phone calls were placed to the Newport Beach Police Department about 3:50 p.m. A woman told responding officers she saw a man point what looked like a gun out the window of a car and said she heard three shots, according to Newport Beach police spokeswoman Kathy Lowe. Patch also received a query from a reader asking about "multiple gunshots" and police cars and helicopters in the Macy's parking lot. "There was nothing at the scene to support that a handgun was fired," Lowe said. "There are no shell casings at the scene, no suspect was located during the search and no physical evidence of gun shots being fired was found."
NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA.com) — A shooting has been reported in the parking lot of Fashion Island in Newport Beach. Fashion Island, opened in 1967, is a mall of largely upscale stores.
Violence Spreads Like an Infectious Disease
Throughout the history of the world violence has wiped millions of people off the face of the earth just like some of the many diseases or plagues such as small pox, tuberculosis, AIDS, cancer, and diabetes.
If one could go back to the beginning of civilization you can clearly see that violence has been around in one form or another. From Ancient Rome to the Iraq War, the toll of violence continues to remind all humans of how sick people can be at times. Some people would argue that violence is necessary in order to control a country or control the people.
However, violence only begets more violence and there are no real winners in the world of violence. Several major cities across the world suffer from high levels of violence and it appears that violence can breakout at anytime or place just like a rash of violence. Countries like Mexico and Brazil and cities like Kingston, Jamaica and Chicago, Ill. suffer from high levels of violence every year.
Looking back on how some people have become desensitized to the suffering of other people there is no other category to place violent behavior into other than a public health issue. The atrocities that occurred in Germany during the Holocaust, Genocide in Rwanda, and the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade would make one think that violence is definitely a sickness.
To brutalize, kill, rape, experiment, strip people of their culture, and lynch people are all signs of sick behavior. Homicides occur all the time and most people feel like it's the norm and there is nothing that can be done about reducing homicide rates.

WTF is going on?
Any credence to the 12/21/12 theory?
Are people going mad?
If so,why what is the cause?
Many questions,but no answers.
