Gunman in Southern California mass shooting knew his victims

Source: AP

ORANGE, Calif. (AP) — The gunman who killed four people and critically wounded a fifth at a Southern California office building knew all the victims and apparently before opening fire chained shut the gates to two entrances, delaying police from getting inside, authorities said Thursday.

Among the victims of the “horrific massacre” Wednesday afternoon was a 9-year-old boy who was found cradled in the arms of a woman believed to be his mother, Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said. The woman was the only survivor among those shot. The others killed were a man and two women.

The suspect in the California shooting was identified as Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez, 44. He was critically wounded. It was unclear whether he suffered a self-inflicted wound or was shot by police.

Gonzalez knew all the victims either personally or through business, police said. They said the precise relationships were still being determined. No names of the victims were released.

2. Normal abnormality?

We’re where we were before covid-19 and before Trump seized power in 2016. Still too many guns, too many deranged people with guns (lookin’s at you, Wayne Lapierre), too many innocent people getting murdered en mass by too many deranged people with guns -- and a Republican Party wed, hip and thigh, to gun manufacturers and the Fascist NRA, guaranteeing the right of deranged people with too many guns to commit mass murders of innocents because, hey, that’s what the Founders wanted.

And President Biden has to figure out what to do about the 72,000,000 Americans who support that Republican Party, support that Fascist NRA, and gladly offer thoughts and prayers for the innocent victims of the Republican supported mass murderers.

Not a job I would have sought!
