So sad to see when things like this happen, especially in my neighborhood.

Hope the woman turns out okay.

Thats interesting. The scanners here mentioned a helicopter carrying them off. Also that there were two girls that got shot, one of them who may have been stalked by the gunman for some time.

The shooter was apparently an ex boyfriend of the woman he shot.

We've heard that the girl worked in the deli, no way to know if that's true or not.
@DRW: I share your concern. My cousin's wife works there.

I was curious because my sister works in the deli w/the girl that got shot, But my sister called in sick tonight and My Whole Family is So Thankful that she was sick and wasn't at work! We are praying for the girl, and hope that she knows All of Sends Her Our Love and Prayers!
So if you could would you tell me for sure if you heard that it was 2 girls, and not just 1?
My sister and this 1 girl are close friends as well as co-workers, and they usually clock out together, when they both work the same hours that day....IDKU, I am asking for the truth....ok....Please I really need to know for sure...it's almost 2am, and I have just found out all of this, I'm just upset, and worried, and Thankful all at the same time, I'm a bottle of nerves right now,,,,,please tell me the truth ok?

I just can't believe things like this are hitting so close to home. Everything will change from now on at our Wal-Mart because of this persons stupidity. I'm praying for the families.

You didnt see anybody, the girl that got shot? You heard 3 shots in the store? I'm trying to mke sense of the whole mess, becuz another guy posted that "it was said on the scanner that the helicopters would be taking out 3 victims....? So I posted back and ask him "IF HE HEARD THIS FOR HIMSELF?" I've not gotten a honest reply yet on that from him, so I'm still waiting, If you were there how many helicopters flew in, and how many was shot, and how many victims was flown out?????? Or was you in the store when they "Locked It Down" and then you couldnt of seen anything, right.....?

People are so crazy. Not a new concept. I was an employee at the defunct Winn-Dixie on South Church Street in Burlington, when an employee came in and shot another employee to death. This girl had refused to date this guy. Then the police shot him to death in the store. Some crazy stuff, but it is going to happen again, someday.
