Multiple shots fired inside CNN building


www.msnbc.msn.com

Gunfire was heard inside the building complex that houses CNN’s headquarters, and a man was seen being carried out on a stretcher with blood covering his face.

CNN reported that the offices of its Internet operations, CNN.com, were evacuated and that a suspect was in custody. Video footage showed police pointing guns at a man lying on the ground inside a building.

In a broadcast, the network reported that two people had been transported to a nearby hospital, their conditions unknown.

I just saw this. I'm wondering what the reasoning behind this was (whether the guy was just fired or pissed about something else). Another workplace shooting. I'm starting to think that maybe an on hand therapist should be available at every office workplace

UPDATE




Woman injured in shooting at CNN Center



A witness who is a CNN employee saw a male shoot a female twice in a street-level lobby area at the northeast end of the building, near the Omni hotel, which is part of CNN Center.

Charles Williams, who works in technology services for Turner, saw a man dragging a woman by the hair one level above where the shooting occurred. The man told him to get out of the way. Williams went to get a guard, and then saw the man apparently take the woman downstairs. He heard gunshots less than a minute later.

CNN.com writer Brad Lendon said he heard a loud bang, and then saw a woman on the ground next to a potted plant near a back entrance to the CNN.com newsroom. A man stood over her "and fired at least two shots into her," he said.

It seems like it was personal and he was targeting this woman...ex lover maybe?? thats my theory

You really have to be messed up in the head to shoot at another person for such trivial matters. You don't shoot an ex-lover for any reason, unless she is pointing a gun at you trying to kill you.

It turns out that it wasnt an actual CNN emoployee but a hotel worker who was visiting.

Perhaps an attempt to send a message to the media?

But this does seem like there was something personal about the victim. Why the suspect would choose to go into the CNN building of all places to commit murder is beyond me though. Just doesn't seem like an ideal place to commit a crime.

From what I've heard, the CNN Center shares the same building complex with the hotel this occurred at. I don't think it had anything to do with CNN.
