    Well, they'll be able to pry the gun out of his warm, dead hands.

    One of the networks initially reported it as a "terrorist attack" but that headline was changed very quickly... To be fair, the headline called it that, the story did not.

    That didn't take long.

    I will never understand why some of the networks glorify that term. Every time someone gets shot, someone is saying that it's a terrorist attack.

    Hard to tell for sure, but local news has 10 shot, shooter DOA, at least one victim critical. FBI on the scene.

    Yeah, it's one of those terms where if someone really decided to be a dick about it could say, "Any attack like this is one of terrorism."

    It's grossly irresponsible until more information is known.

    Because people are more likely to stop and watch if the word "terrorist" is in the headline.

    Very true, but still grossly irresponsible...
