Looks like a domestic dispute.....

Photos from the scene showed that at least 8 bullets had struck the windshield of the car. One witness said the gunman was approached by a citizen who pulled out a gun, after which the suspect turned the gun on himself and committed suicide.

“Another guy ran up there and had a gun. The shooter shot himself,” he said.

Other details about the circumstances of Monday’s shooting were not immediately known, but family members told FOX 25 that it was related to a domestic dispute between a husband and a wife. The identities of those killed were not immediately released.

Nearly All Mass Shooters Since 1966 Have Had 4 Things in Common

 

The largest study of mass shooters ever funded by the U.S. government reveals stunning information about perpetrators.
 

The stereotype of a mass shooter is a white male with a history of mental illness or domestic violence. While that may be anecdotally true, the largest single study of mass shooters ever funded by the U.S. government has found that nearly all mass shooters have four specific things in common.

 

A new Department of Justice-funded study of all mass shootings — killings of four or more people in a public place — since 1966 found that the shooters typically have an experience with childhood trauma, a personal crisis or specific grievance, and a “script” or examples that validate their feelings or provide a roadmap. And then there’s the fourth thing: access to a firearm.

Middle school student, 13, is arrested as police find a AR-15 rifle, 100 rounds of ammo, a list of victims and school layout at his home after he was overheard threatening to attack it

 

A 13-year-old student has been arrested after police found an AR-15 rifle, ammunition, a drawing layout of his middle school and a list of intended victims in at his home. 

 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department announced on Friday that the teen had been taken into custody but they would not release his name.  

 

At a press conference on Friday, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said multiple students had overheard him at Animo Mae Middle School in Los Angeles on Thursday saying he was going to attack the school the next day. 

 

They reported it to teachers who in turn contacted police. A search warrant was issued for the teenager's home. While there, police found the hand drawn map and the list of names. 

 

They also found the AR-15. It is unclear if the gun is registered to anyone but it has a serial number. 

 

Police commended the children for speaking up when they saw something.
