    Rodriguez said police were still investigating the motive and identifying the gunman and victims.......more.....

    Agreed. It's worsening, when it should be improving.

    RIP to the innocent victims.

    Vargas lived at the apartments

    Pedro Vargas ID'd as gunman behind deadly rampage in Hialeah, Florida

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-...aleah-florida/

    HIALEAH, Fla. Police say the gunman who killed six people and took two others hostage before a SWAT team fatally shot him was a 43-year-old resident of the South Florida apartment complex.......

    Police spokesman Carl Zogby has identified the man as Pedro Vargas.

    Zogby says the incident began when Vargas set his apartment on fire Friday evening. The building managers noticed smoke and ran to his apartment, and Zogby said he shot and killed the couple when they arrived.......

    Zogby said the gunman moved from floor to floor, eventually barricading himself in an apartment with two hostages......

    "They made the decision to go in there and save and rescue the hostages," Rodriguez said. Both hostages survived......

    Zulima Niebles said police told her that three of her family members were among the victims. She said her sister Merly Sophia Niebles, her sister's husband, and her sister's daughter Priscila Perez, 16, were all shot and killed...........

    Police were looking into the possibility that Vargas -- described by some as a "quiet" man -- may have had a dispute with the building managers, who were among his victims, Zogby said.

    But that had not been established. An initial check indicated that Vargas had no criminal history and no history of irrational behavior. "We don't have an explanation," Zogby said.

    What could have caused this man to take so many innocent lives??

    How tragic.
    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    He did not value his own life. Gun control in Australia came after a similar situation.

    "Neighbors give contrasting descriptions of Fla. apartment gunman"

    "The gunman who went on a shooting rampage at a South Florida apartment complex was described as a quiet man who took his mother to doctor appointments, yet also someone who was known for getting into fights and yelling at his mom."

    "The conflicting portrayals of Pedro Vargas, 42, emerged as police tried to piece together why he set ablaze the apartment he lived in with his mother and then killed six people before police fatally shot him."
