Here is the huffington post link to the breaking story. Sad to hear. Not sure where he is getting the info on the weapons. Jumping to conclusions maybe.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Authorities in New Mexico say a teenage boy has fatally shot two adults and three children inside an Albuquerque home.

The boy has been booked on murder and other charges.

Bernalillo County sheriff's spokesman Aaron Williamson says the boy's motive and connection to the five victims aren't immediately unknown.

Williamson says investigators who received a report of the shooting Saturday night are trying to determine whether the victims were related.

The victims' identities haven't been released.

I can at least add this:


The boy was arrested and booked on murder and other charges in connection with the shootings Saturday night, Bernalillo County sheriff's spokesman Aaron Williamson said.

The victims' identities haven't been released, and the boy's motive and connection to the five victims weren't immediately unknown. Williamson said investigators were trying to determine if the victims were related.

Sounds like they got him, alive and well for a change. Maybe now someone can ask him what made him do it... The gun or video games? I mean obviously any shooting in North America with 3 or more victims will be national level reporting for awhile. Might as well hope they get some answers since the media will pursue the initial headlines dutifully enough.

@Rival

It's horrible to have to say but these are different cases.

The killings all occurred inside one home, so either a home invasion or a domestic violence turned deadly. Is morgan going to tweet every single murder now?

It seems the threshold is 3 or more victims. I'm not kidding either. I've been watching this for the pattern and I think that's it. 3+ shootings where it isn't clear and obvious street crime.

Lucky that kids family had a gun in the house or else who knows what could have happened


Im willing to bet not only that the kid got the gun from his parents and that they passed every test and the guns were purchased legally.
But its OK, guns everywhere is perfectly safe

Serious question here: What makes a shooting a 'mass shooting'? How many people have to be involved before they label it 'mass'? More than one? Two? Anything involving children?

What number of casualties does the media decide it's a 'mass shooting'?

Isn't the word 'Mass' being used short for 'Massive'? How many people does it take to make a 'massive shooting'?

Webster defines massive as: impressively large or ponderous. Does five people fit this description?

I'm not trying to take anything away from this tragedy but I am getting tire of the 'wordsmithing' being used in the media.

Yes I caught that. The story was so new there was nothing on the web yet except the week old
shooting. I amended my post so no confusion.

We are going to have to do something about the over-medication of our children with pyschotropic
drugs. And I say that without even knowing the facts of this shooting

Having guns is perfectly safe, if they are stored safely & securely. We do not know all of the details about how this kid got a hold of them or anything else.

Regardless of how many shootings occur in our country we still have a right to bear arms to protect ourselves. These things are going to happen, but it is our responsibility to be responsible gun owners. These people paid for this with their lives, but it should still not infringe upon the rights of others.

Since people sometimes use cars to run over others should we take cars away from everyone? Or just make everyone drive golf carts or ride bikes?

Mistake? Or just more gibberish? I'm sure the kids knows exactly who these people were.

Yep you have the right to have guns everywhere, stories like this are the result of guns in every home and kids not seeing them as taboo.

As for cars, yeah lets ban them and forks and DRs and sticks

Stupidest argument ever

I can see it now...

Several weapons were found, including an assault rifle. It is suspected that the assault rifle convinced the other weapons to fire upon the unsuspecting people.

The title is so bombastic, MASS SHOOTING and somehow fails to tell with the same emphasis that is also an HOME INVASION!!!
