Who knows? First, this is Topix and not a reliable News source so who knows what really happened..or if any of this actually happened at all, ya know? Second, the "details" being supplied here just do not sound right so there's no telling what the heck is going on and I doubt we're going to get a valid account here, heh.
i totally agree but yes, it did happen.

First I've heard of this today but as to you all saying what business did he have carrying a gun in Lowes he has every right to carry a gun anywhere he pleases. And if he has a concealed carry permit he can have it anywhere on his person and it's not against the law. Lowe's does not have a no weapons sign up. And you'd be surprised at how many people are armed around you every day that you have no clue about. We are everyday people who have chose to use the right to arm ourselves and be prepared to protect ourselves and our family and friends if the need arises. As I said I have no clue what this person's intentions were but if he was just a customer walking around with a gun on his side and someone freaked out then its not his fault. If he wasn't threatening anyone he has the right to carry.

BREAKING NEWS : An employee of Lowe's of Pikeville walked into the store this morning just before they were scheduled to open and fired a gun. Pikeville Police Department officials say 51 year old Barry Cates, Jr. of Ivel, armed with a .22 caliber revolver entered the store looking for a fellow employee with whom Cates apparently had an ongoing dispute with. After learning the other employee was on vacation, Cates fired the gun twice inside the store with other employees present. Detective Phillip Reed said when officers arrived on the scene, Cates laid the gun and ammunition down and surrendered without incident. Cates was arrested and lodged in the Pike County Detention Center and charged with 1st Degree Wanton Endangerment. However, officials say other charges may be filed after further investigation. The Pikeville Police Department was assisted on the scene by Commercial Vehicle Enforcement officers and the Kentucky State Police

From what I understand it was an employee. People have the right to carry a weapon with a permit, yes, but why would you need to take a gun to work? I don't know what is true and what isn't but I heard he had brought a gun into the store with the intent on using it on someone. Don't know who or anything. But if that is the case then no he didn't have the right to do that. Unless everyone has the right to go around shooting anyone who pisses them off... I do not know the facts and am not stating them as such, so that may not even be true. But if it is, that's pretty bad...

I know the police aren't letting people in and we were also told that it was an employee with a gun inside and that shots were fired earlier this morning. We went there and thought maybe it was a fund raiser or something like that with all the cops there. Just glad we were trapped inside and I hope everyone is okay in there.

he was lookin for another employee that he was ticked off at, he did in fact pull the gun out and allegedly fired it into the air. The funny part about it all is the person he was looking for was on vacation. Confucius says.....if you're gonna go gunnin 4 someone at work, make sure they ARE AT WORK.

actually its was berry cates he went in the store with the gun planning on killing someone and that he fired shots in the air, prob warning ones, but no one was harmed. truth be told though he never seemed to be that way, he was always nice and was funny as hell,but hes going through a rough time bc hes sick but maybe he lost his mind went legit crazy who noes but at least no ones hurt and hes in jail.but only he knows wats goin on in his head and wat he really ment to do. so i dont think anybody actualy knows wats goin on or the whole truth.

My guess would be that THe person with the gun make a move on the other person (in a sexual manner) and was either turned down or refused right out. Can f with a queer.

I don't think talking about people this way is necessary. We do not know why Barry done what he done but have a little respect for his family. I am sure he had his reasons for what happened. Don't judge others because one day we all will be judged in the end!!!
