    Multiple killings are happening it seems at an alarming rate everywhere. Do you think this may have been gang related?

    IMO

    Could be. I thought of that first, but then I read about the Phoenix serial killers and I wonder if this is a copycat or if something is going on terrorist-like around the country?
