    I certainly hope the police do not look for the shooter. Obviously this is a person that has done nothing wrong. If the police locate the shooter, they might once again kill an innocent. We do not want that to happen.

    Can't they provide a description of the gunman. Would be nice if we knew what we were looking for!

    I just hope the police catch this person, but arrest them nicely and give them milk and cookies.
