3 killed, 2 wounded overnight in Kenosha bar shooting

Source: Axios

Three people died and two were hospitalized with serious injuries after a gunman entered bar in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, the police department said in a statement on Sunday. Police responded to the shooting at around 12:42 a.m. and the suspect has not been found.

The big picture: The midnight shooting is the latest in a string of deadly mass shootings to hit the U.S. since March, fueling a debate in Washington about how to regulate the weapons.

What they're saying: Police described the suspect as "a black male over six feet tall wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt" and say the shooting appeared to be an isolated incident. Victims' names and ages are still being determined.

"We do not believe there is a threat to the community at this time," the department said in a statement.
The shooting occurred inside the tavern, Sgt. David Wright, a spokesperson for the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, told CNN.

3. I'd like to thank those three for their sacrifice to our gun gods.

Without them giving paying the ultimate price we wouldn’t have our gun freedumbs.

My apologies for the heavy sarcasm this morning but I’m just so sick of this shit.

I do believe you're very wrong, Sgt.David Wright.

Give all the bouncers an AR-15 as well, just for good measure.

10. Given this took place in a bar late at night, it isn't a Rampage Shooter.

This is probably in the "Respect" shootings category. Someone insulted someone, or talked to a woman that was "off-limits", or was thrown out for starting a fight; something like that. Impulsive and likely alcohol-influenced.

That kind of testosterone-based anger is universal and won't ever go away, but it doesn't have to end in bullets and blood.

Guns make everything worse.

13. After midnight . . .

I was a paramedic and captain of a rural volunteer rescue squad until I got too old for the job. One thing I learned the first day on the job: Nothing good happens after midnight, especially if some mixture of alcohol, guns, dope, and stupid people is involved.
