other sources are reporting 4 dead and no active search for the shooter, so I'm assuming the shooter is one of the 4 dead

I wonder if this is business related (family going broke and indebt over their heads)? Recently here (a bout an hour and a half drive south of St. Louis) there was a shooting in a home that had a business ran out of it. The father shot his wife, his son (who was home from college), and himself. Both the wife and son are dead. No news as to the why yet but I am suspecting the failing business/debt related depression pushing people over the edge.

I hope some more information comes up on this. I am very curious as to the why, and less interested in the how.

St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack said the victims were two women and two men, all in their early 40s to mid-50s. The shooter worked at the business and got into an argument with the three victims prior to opening fire.

Yeah I read the shooter might have been a owner of the business. I am not sure if they are implying that there is more than one owner or if a single owner though.

An update from 7 minutes ago says this

Fight breaks out near scene of Cherokee shooting. The St. Louis Police Department arrests two.


I wonder if more family showed up? It seems this might have been boiling for some awhile, speculating of course.

As far as mass shootings go, this one is nothing special. Condolences to the friends and families of the victims. Other than that, I've got nothing more to add.

This is all becoming so generic.

I would not even consider this a mass shooting.

Also while shootings that are mass or even murder/suicide are becoming a more seen/known about occurrence, I think the real issue here is the why.

As I said there was a recent event very much like this not far south of St. Louis just last week. I think this shows what is starting to happen in the Midwest. This is an area that often sees the effects of the economy last if at all when there are problems. In the last two years we are seeing houses being foreclosed on when other areas of the U.S. were seeing it years before this. I am almost certain that money/debt was the reason for the shooting that took place here. I also believe it has something to do with this shooting as well. Of course this is speculation, I will not deny that. However, looking at what information we have it seems logical to start looking in that direction.

Of course not long ago St. Louis was considered the most dangerous city in the U.S. However, in recent years there have been a steady increase of CCW permits issued. The classes are often filled very quickly.


All that being said and back to my original point, I think the real issue here is we are seeing the Midwest seeing what other parts of the country have been seeing for years. The country as a whole is becoming more unstable as the jobs fall away and the economy goes deeper and deeper. Add to all of that the growing unrest about government overstepping their bounds and the public looks to be on the verge of a boiling point.

I am starting to wonder if we will start seeing on a large scale what we are seeing in other places with rioting and protesting. Those in the top might be smiling now, but I wonder if in the backs of their minds they are feeling that they are soon to be ripped from their posts.
