All I know is the guy is white, and apparently shouted (from his armored vehicle that they "took his son". They said it sounded like there was more than one person and shots coming from above too, but also said that it could be the bullets ricocheting off the buildings made it sound like there was more. No one hurt so far.

Guy has a history of domestic violence.
They finally took his son away.

He cracked and went postal.

My Facebook is blowing up with the blow-by-blow account, but I'm not going to watch the breathless wall-to-wall coverage on TV; I'll read about it or watch a news report when it's over and we have more facts.

You are going to be fed what the media wants to feed you.
Actual "facts" don't matter anymore.
