Yet another shooting. Is anyone safe?
Oddly enough, the shooter, Terence Tyler, was an employee of the supermarket who had just completed his shift a half hour earlier.
Tyler killed two people, including an 18-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man, and then turned the gun on himself. And yes, he was successful in committing suicide, too.
No one really knows what caused Tyler to react this way, but some surviving co-workers have described him as someone who gave off an “uneasy vibe.”
This and all the recent shootings we have experienced lately, like the one in Aurora, Colorado, convince me of one fundamental truth: No one is safe.
I hate that it’s come to this, but I urge you all to be as careful as possible in every situation. You just never know when someone is going to lose it and start taking out their problems on others, and with guns no less. Protect yourselves and be wary. The next shooter could be almost anyone.
