That's odd isn't it? There were reportedly 80,000 people there (?) and a guy starts shooting and hits two people and escapes. Video indicated a black guy in dreadlocks and a baseball cap was the shooter. Almost no coverage of this incident. Why? Because of pot? Because the shooter may have been black? Or?

The shooter in Federal way was reportedly black.

Not surprising for the area.

LOL - I saw the picture of the apartments - and read what happened - and thought "I bet that it happened in Federal Way".

You would have to have spent some time in that city to understand.

I lived about 5 miles north of the incident location.

Americans have come to accept gun killings as Death By Natural Causes but they`re scared shi*less of bombs.

There are approximately 11,000 homicides per year in the US.
Are all of them supposed to be reported on City Data?
Hold on while I go get last weeks newspapers out of the reycling bin.
