    KS - Up to 20 Injured, Gunman Killed in Multiple Shootings in Kansas :(

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...kplace-n526061

    A gunman was dead and as many as 20 other people could be injured after a series of shootings Thursday in rural Kansas, authorities said. The sheriff said it was possible that up to four people may be dead but that those reports hadn't been confirmed.

    Praying for the injured and hoping there are no casualties tonight !!

    At this point, also thinking about the deceased shooter's family.
    What goes through people's minds to harm/kill others but also to essentially destroy their own family ?

    From link above

    In an evening press conference, Harvey County Sherrif T. Walton listed four crime scenes: the first in the nearby town of Newton where a man was shot in the shoulder while driving a truck, the second shooting happening on Hester Road, then another shooting in the parking lot of the Excel building, and ultimately inside the building itself.Walton added that the FBI would conduct an investigation.


    The Hesston Record reported that the shooter was carrying an AK-47 at the time he was shot and killed.

    Sorry, tried to edit my post and couldn't see any text.

    As many as 4 killed, up to 20 hurt in multiple shootings in Hesston, Kansas

    http://www.kake.com/home/headlines/P...370190361.html

    Officers responded Thursday afternoon to the report of an active shooter at Excel Industries at 200 South Ridge Road. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton said four to seven people are dead and as many as 20 have been injured.

    W.T.F.
    Guessing here; maybe an injustice collector, or someone who'd recently been fired ?
    Thinking about the families affected.

    Shooter is Cedric Larry Ford , according to the last video at the above link. Photo from his workplace.
    Sounds like he had been fired ; and also has some priors.
    Also video of him firing a gun.
    Lady in the first video thought he'd used an AK47.

    Espinoza told The Associated Press the shooter pointed a gun at him and pulled the trigger, but the gun was empty. At that point, the shooter got a different gun and Martin took off running.

    An article I read earlier they said this is a gun free zone.

    The shooter is identified as Cedric Ford who currently worked there, in the kake link.

    This site says a couple of coworkers were interviewed and they didn't know why he would do this, also some photos from his FB and criminal record details (domestic violence, etc.)

    Of course it was popsicle. These mass shooters always target gun free zones.

    May God be with the families of the victims.

    According to Florida court documents, he was charged with multiple crimes in his history, including burglary, grand theft, fleeing and eluding and other charges dating back to 1996. Ford was also booked in Sedgwick County in 2008. Eyewitness News has not confirmed the charges in the Sedgwick County arrest.
