    NJ - Seven people shot to death in NJ/PA killing spree, May-July 2015

    NYT:

    New Jersey Man Charged With Killing 7 in Nearly 2 Months

    A 22-year-old man has been charged with fatally shooting seven people and wounding an eighth in a seven-week spree that spread from New Jersey to Pennsylvania, punctuated by bursts of violence that left multiple people dead in the span of several hours.

    The man, Todd West, of Elizabeth, N.J., led police officers on a frantic chase, sometimes shooting his next victim before investigators had wiped the asphalt of the last person’s blood, the authorities said on Thursday.

    His motive remained unclear, as did the method he used to choose his targets, but the authorities in Union County, N.J., called the carnage he left behind “horrific.”

    Robert Jourdain had been drinking for hours before he walked into a Walmart store early in the morning of July 5 and bought a box of .38-caliber ammunition, court papers say...

    The victims' families have filed a lawsuit in Philadelphia against Walmart that one expert says could succeed despite federal protections for gun and ammo dealers...

    "The bottom line here is that Walmart sold .38-caliber handgun ammunition to an underage person in the middle of the night, and that ammunition was used to kill several people," said Philadelphia attorney Matt Casey, who filed the suit last week.
