  1. Is this possibly another wild West gang related shootout with bullets flying everywhere? Were any of the victims innocent bystanders? If not it’s just a matter of time before innocent bystanders get caught in a hail of bullets.

  2. Notice the lack of the statement, “There is no threat to the public at this time.”
    Often what goes unsaid is far more impactful than what is said.

  3. “The business where it happened is a fraternal organization building, which leases out the kitchen.”
    .
    Interesting combination — an Elks Lodge, and The Union Cuisine Restaurant & Catering Service, specializing in GOURMET Soul Food and BBQ. I’m betting the “involved people a s s ociated with the business” were something to do with the restaurant.
