Oh it seems it was a quarrel and not just some lunatic storming into a Publix and shooting everyone there. Still bad news though, my condolences to the ppl.

Crazy story. More murder victims in one incident than Hialeah usually has in one year. And the guy even shot at some random guy at anotHr building. Guy just went nuts. Crazy.

It's as if he knew his life would go downhill once he killed the first two and decided to just kill a few others. A person who knew he had nothing to lose.

What does that mean? I don't remember anything like this ever happening in any apartment complex anywhere else.

There seems to be more crime in apartment buildings than in single family homes. Out here in the country, most are well armed, but I have never heard of a random shootout here. I also believe that south Florida is an area full of resentment, and a lot of mentally unstable people waiting to go over the edge. Someday it will be that the crazies start going after the wealthy areas in revenge or for robbery. There is so much money concentrated in isolated communities, and a few frustrated gunmen could cause havoc in a place like a bay island or even more exclusive areas on the mainland.
