This time in Kansas City, MO. Three reported dead so far. After a well publicized mass shooting, it seems there are always copycat incidents that follow in short order. I was hoping to escape that this time, but it appears that won’t be the case.
Fox is reporting that the shooter used an AK-47.
UPDATE: Information is still coming out about this.Â Judging from what witnesses are saying, and from the type of wounding they are describing, I’m going to guess shotgun.Â A witness said the guy had a sawed off shotgun. Â You have reports of an officer taking a hit, and then returning fire.Â Another of a victim holding his eye, having been hit. Â Those types of wounds are more consistent with a shotgun hit at a distance, rather than a rifle hit.Â Especially if it was a short barreled shotgun, and the shooter was using bird shot.
