A grease-induced heart attack was mistaken for a gunshot wound. He must've had Burt's chili.

the report never mentioned the persons name or gender or age, isn't that a little odd?

Usually when it is an act of suicide or attempted suicide names arent ever mentioned. I think this is a good policy. I'm upset people want to joke at the seriousness of this situation. My God, just imaging how hopeless someone feels when they go to such drastic measures to end their pain and suffering. May God be with him and his family during this time of need. May God forgive those who laugh at this story.

I was right there at Walgreens when the police surrounded the Waffle House. And when I say surrounded, they came from every which way. I wasnt sure what had happened, but I knew it wasn't just a robbery or something. I said to my husband that, that many rescue vehicles and police cars was because somebody did something CRAZY. My prayers are with the victim's family, & it's really disrespectful & disgusting that some human beings find humor in another man's misery, pain, or whatever it may be. But I believe in that BIG 5 letter word.....KARMA!!!!

This is a very SAD thing for the people and family affected by this. This is just another victim of these crazy times we live in. We don't know what was going on in his mind and why he felt like he needed to end his life. I feel sorry for his family who has to read all of these horrible posts about their loved one.

Anyone that attempts suicide deserves to die. That is the cowards way out. My own grandmother ate a bullet and I have now empathy for her either. If you don't respect yourself enough to try and deal with the problems then you definitely don't belong in society. If there are mental problems which EVERYONE claims they have when attempting suicide then he should have been in a mental ward anyways. I may sound cold hearted, but if he is stupid enough to attempt tp take his own life, next time he might wanna try and take somebody else with him. This guy should be charged with attempted murder and pulic endangerment. BOTTOM LINE.

First of all, if you are illegal, you broke the law entering this country. Secondly, you cannot legally own a firearm. That's why you would go to jail.
