I have no desire to argue the weapons issue. i honestly want to try to understand why our own people are killing us?

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that according to Blair County District Attorney Rich Consiglio, the shooting scene "extended over several miles."

    The shooter was mobile as he exchanged gunfire with police, he said. Officials said he used his vehicle to ram a police car during the chase.
    ---
    “This person went to their driveway with a pistol, pointed at them and started shooting,” said Marie Brenneman, who identified herself as a cousin of one of the victims.

    She said the shooter was a neighbor of the two male victims and “they were uneasy around him,” she said.
