A gunman "randomly" opened fire Thursday morning on Laclede Gas employees working in the city's Hamilton Heights neighborhood, killing two before shooting and killing himself, police and a witness said.
The shooting was reported about 11:16 a.m. in the 5900 block of Minerva Avenue, on the western edge of the city.
Police said two Laclede Gas workers, one in his 20s and the other in his 50s, were fatally injured when the gunman "randomly" fired at them, according to St. Louis Police Capt. Mary Warnecke. The gunman then killed himself, though that appears to have been at a different location.

The Constitutional definition of a “Militia” should, with no doubt, include all honorably discharged U.S. military veterans. (I’d prefer ARMY, but - anyway.)
In such a case, there most likely would have been one of the six or seven hundred thousand veterans somewhere nearby.
Fire for effect...
Not unusual in the hood.
Were they randomly white in a black neighborhood? or vice versa?.............
UPDATE: PG&E employee one of 3 Fresno shooting victims!
Coincidence that two gas workers were killed by shooters in less than a week?
Don’t be a bigot, Seal teams are a problem because.....
DRAIN THE SWAMP, COMPLETELY!

Some of us in the Navy knew/know how to use a weapon properly. :)
I will admit that many sailors should never be near a loaded weapon. For that reason, I was very glad that our main protectors were US Marines.
i was a salior,i forgot more about guns than you will ever know.
Rough week for utility workers. Seems like every day there are more crazies per 1000.
Wow..did not know that.
Shooting first responders has become a target of BLMers and Jihadists.
Add public utility people to that list, and we have a very dangerous situation for Americans.
North side of STL. Cf. south side of Chicago.
Not really unless you have shot 100’s in Skeet and Trap and a lot of four legged critters and those with wings.
My short experience in the Navy with good guys was most of them could not hit their ship with a 45 bullet firing from 20’ away. It was pretty bad when the Divers on your ship wanted a Spook to help stand shark watch over them with a M1 when they were diving.
I’m sure that you are and were a good shot. Most of the sailors I served with were not.
No. The people.
I thank you for your service.
