To save work, someone should just post "Another Fucking Shooting" daily. Then add details later when they're known.

Just think, you could be having a pleasant, patriotic discussion on cable TV about the right to own machine guns, only to have it interrupted by news of people being brutally killed by machine guns.

Unlikely, since weapons are banned on campus.

Is this another false flag?

It's confirmed that it did happen.
I'm really glad that the media is reporting these shootings front and center so the public finally wakes the fuck up. Now they're paying attention. This happens everyday in the US.

1,274 dead, 7 wounded.
If they all had had guns we wouldn't have had those wounded.

A maintenance worker was wounded in the crossfire.
The shooting began when an altercation involving two individuals escalated shortly before 1 p.m. local time, according to police.
The maintenance worker suffered multiple gunshot wounds and is listed in serious condition. A second victim, thought to be a student, suffered an apparent heart attack during the incident.
One of the suspects was taken into custody at the scene, while a second fled the campus on foot. Five law enforcement agencies searched a wooded area near the school, where the second suspect was taken into custody. Both suspects were also wounded.

Too bad they didn't take out a few more. We could have had a vigil! Not worth all that trouble for just a couple.

According to the school's website, Lone Star College prohibits "knowingly, intentionally or recklessly" setting foot on school property with a firearm.
The website also includes an extensive section on what to do in an active shooter situation. It reads in part:
If they do start shooting people, you need to make a choice: stay still and hope they do not shoot you, run for an exit while zigzagging, or attack the shooter.
If you chose to run, a zigzagging moving target is much harder to hit than a straight runner.
Playing dead may also be a consideration.
It is not a recommendation to attack the shooter, but remember that you have a choice to fight when there are no other options.
The last thing that the shooter will expect is to be attacked by you.

The problem is the students were not allowed to carry their weapons openly. If they had been known to be carrying, neither would have messed with the other and that poor janitor would be home with his family.
