This is stuff you hear about on the news, but it's not supposed to actually happen anywhere near you:


Edit: Update 6:30 PM Early reports indicate between 5 and 8 people have been shot to death in Geneva County after a gunman went on a killing spree. Details are hard to come by at this time.

A suspect opened fire in several Wiregrass cities as he fled from authorities. News 4 report says that at a house the shooter killed several members of his family.

Our reporter also saw at least one truck that had been rear ended with bullet holes in it on Highway 27. The young man driving that truck was killed.

We have another reporter at the Wiregrass hospital in Geneva.

They do not have an identity on the gunman yet.

There were several vehicles shot on Highway 52 between Samson and Geneva. Law enforcement has taped off several of those vehicles.

One was veteran law enforcement Frankie Kindsey, he was shot in arm. Another law enforcement officer’s wife and child were shot to death.

At this time there are reports of 7 people fatally shot.

Law enforcement from both Alabama and Florida are there.

Another one of our reporters spoke with a woman who works at reliable products, that's where today's scene ended.

According to this caller she and other co-workers were crouched in the corner of buildings, trying to protect themselves.

The gunman burst through the back door of the business… that’s when he was killed.

Now the caller says she couldn't tell if the gunman was shot by law enforcement, or if he took his own life.

No workers were injured at reliable products.

I know people in all of these cities. *worried*

What is it with Wal-Mart and violence these days? It's like the new post office.

I hope no one you know was hurt. *hugs*

I know. It makes me hate shopping even more than normal.

Thanks. *hugs* So far, I'm taking no news to be good news. And btw, your icon made me smile. Thanks, I needed that.
