Not that there is a thing funny about this. But I have to give it to Joe over at the Moderate Voice for saying the obvious:
Is there something in the water, is this a coincidence…or what?
My thoughts exactly. I was over here, sorta taking a nap and sorta not…. Listening to the Ft. Hood Coverage and what happens? They break in to report —- another shooting! Oy. I mean, did someone put some crazy syrup in the water supply? Seriously! I mean, I know unemployment is at 10.2 percent and all; but Christ Almighty! Getting your bang bang on ain’t gonna fix nothin’ at all.
Anyhow, Here’s the story via CNN:
At least seven people with serious gunshot wounds were brought out of an Orlando, Florida, office building Friday, a spokeswoman with the city fire department said.
An Orlando Police Department spokeswoman identified the alleged shooter as Jason Rodriguez, who used to work in the building. He is still at large, said John Tormos of the Orlando Fire Department.
A spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, which is helping the city police department, said investigators are looking for a man wearing a blue Polo shirt, gray vest and blue jeans.
“We’re in a search mode for the gunman,” said Jim Solomons, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
Fox News has just announced that the suspect is in custody. I am working on getting a link to that. Update #2: Confirmed
