Just Off the Wire

From Boston.com this morning:

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. --Three people were fatally shot, and several others, including two police officers, were wounded at an early morning rampage at a New Bedford strip club, police said.

NewsCenter 5's Gail Huff reported that the shooting took place after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Route 6 club. Several other people were wounded as well.

The gunman walked into the club in full body armor as it was closing and opened fire. The two officers who were working details at the club responded and were wounded. Other police surrounded the club and before 6 a.m. they stormed the building. They reportedly found three people dead, one of them the gunman.

Of course, my first reaction, upon reading this horrific piece of news was, "The Foxy lady moved?".

From Eyewitness News, Channel 12 in Providence:

We do know that the suspect was carrying a M-16 automatic gun. There's no word yet on the conditions of the victims.

Thank GOD we have all these gun laws in Massachusetts disarming the non-criminal population to prevent these horrific shootings.
