Probably Gooseman, angry that the Feds have not rounded up every Tea Party member and shot them already.

Turns out to be former cop. But my only question is why the heck is a cop carrying a AK style weapon? Spray and Pray inaccurate for urban police work. I don't like the military hup hup our police have taken to. Look how NPS has been treating veterans.

Wasn't there a story about a Wheeling cop recently who was fired but tried to get his job back via a failed law suit?? By the way, this story and the Stupenville rape story are in the national press again. The Ohio Valley is one big black eye these days.

This was not the same police officer that recently was in court after losing his job. The shooter had been a Wheeling police officer 15 years ago.

BTW, if "guns kill" why didn't they just shoot the gun instead of the shooter?

@rusty - The shooter had been a Wheeling police officer 15 years ago.

He must have gone nuts or been on drugs or both.

Eventually 'Wheeling's Finest' will figure out the 'why'. Bet this has one heck of a 'back story'.

Swimming pools are 53 times more likely to kill a child vs. a firearm.

If the goal is to SAVE LIVES, we should immediately ban all swimming pools.....

Of course, liberals don't actually care about children, or any human beings, which is why they have gleefully danced as 65 million American children have been executed since Roe v. Wade. Liberals get a tingling feeling down their leg when a baby has its' skull crushed and vacuumed out, its' limbs broken off and its' remains tossed in the garbage like leftover meatloaf.

Every time a liberal feigns concern about human life, they should get a hard punch in the face. Scum.

You don't care about life. You care about control. You want to control people who don't share your values and will never conform to your ridiculous ideals.

Remember, CONTROL is the goal. Human life? That is just a convenient smokescreen.

On topic, why was the officer who shot the perp placed on leave? Is that standard? The cop should be given a medal

I am sickened by this news. I am not surprised at the shooting or the fact that it was a former police officer. There are too many that become dangerous during their employment and they retire and then such events happen. They are not getting the help that they need.

Gregor, No one is stopping you from sending your entire paycheck to DC each time you receive it. Just remember to keep out 46 cents for a stamp and enough to buy an envelope to send it.

Rusty, didn't you hear, some mentally challenged ex-cop did shoot the gun. Apparently that's what started the whole thing.

Also, it was reported today that some mentally challenged individual beat and smothers a 5-month old child n Bellaire.
