Illinois has pretty tough gun laws, shootings can’t happen there.
small town about 90 miles from St.L
Not a good start to work week’s Hump Day... waiting for details.
Can this possibly be true?
I thought they had guns under control there?
As of the census of 2000, there were 354 people, 136 households, and 99 families residing in the village. The population density was 341.8 people per square mile (131.4/km²). There were 147 housing units at an average density of 141.9 per square mile (54.6/km²). The racial makeup of the village was 100.00% White.”
Sad story. More than 1% of their population killed.
TEA Party I’m sure.
there are not enough details provided to know if it was all locals or not. The report is suspiciously short of details.
I will bet $50 that the shooter did not use an “assault rifle.”
Five dead? Where are the photos of the town on lockdown, and the house to house searches by tactical teams?
>The pastor of Manchester Baptist Church told NewsChannel 5 that the murders happened inside a public housing complex on East Street Wednesday morning.
Sounds like the Amish to me. Section 8 no doubt.
How can that be? I thought they had already gone door-to-door and confiscated guns in the housing projects?
that sounds like drugs to me.
According to Wikipedia: "The racial makeup of the village was 100.00% White."
So this is apparently a dustup in a racist enclave.
The suspect was on the run for about 2 hours this morning. He was caught after a high-speed pursuit. Shots were fired while the suspect was taken into custody. The suspect is being taken to a hospital.
Probably wiki wrong as usual
What makes you think that? There are plenty of white folks living in public housing/section 8.
Illinois needs tougher gun laws! Wait...
