This is heartbreaking and horrific. I hope I'm wrong, but I fear the count of people dying from the result of this will only increase as so many are injured. :(
My cousin was married in the area 12 years ago next month. This hits home, and we are devastated by this.

I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

The initial report I posted (not the news feed) came from an ex EMT employee who said he was repeating what he was hearing on police scanners. Apparently someone was a bit off. I believe the shooter is dead and was killed on an upper floor of the hotel. The police are looking for a woman who they say was his roommate.

Is it a domestic incident or terrorist related?

Well, depends on what you consider terrorist. The woman is Filipino and I have no idea what the shooter is nor his motive. He managed to kill a lot of police who were apparently off duty or at least some were. I think we need to know what the motive for the shooting was and exactly how many shooters there really were before we can even begin to say terrorist or domestic.

People on twitter and FB are naming the shooter without knowing this man is him or not. I found his FB profile and the ppl are saying the woman, Danley woman who is being sought by police, is his wife. I dunno but others on twitter are saying someone else is the shooter. I think ppl need to stop accusing people of this crime or even being involved with it or they're going to get someone else killed!

I see you know nothing about rifles. That was an automatic. You can hear it. No semi-automatic fires like the sniper's gun or guns did. He used illegal weapons. You can't stop selling illegal weapons as they are either modified by the person who owns them to be fully automatic or they purchased them from an illegal source, or both.
