Shooting at Arizona Shopping Complex

Fri May 22, 2020 2:47 am

A shooting yesterday evening at a shopping and entertainment complex in suburban Phoenix led to three people being injured and the suspect being taken into custody. The victims were a 19 year old man with life threatening injuries, a 30 year old man, and a 16 year old girl. Gunfire was no longer active when officers arrived at the Westgate Entertainment District shortly after 7:25 pm and officers arrived at the scene 5 minutes after the first phone call. It is a very traumatic event and it was great that cops nabbed the shooter before he caused even more harm.

This is the first 'shooting' thread for a while.

Have the numbers dropped, or just not being reported?.

With so many people staying at home, there are fewer options for mass shootings?

The gunman was live streaming the shooting. I watched the video and it seems like he wasn't that committed to a massacre as he deliberately missed and let quite a few people "get away." He was mostly shooting randomly and not at people.

“He said that he went to Westgate to target victims. He wanted to gain some respect and he felt that he had been bullied in his life," the sergeant said.


“He did mention to the investigators that he gave up when he saw the officers responding," Stewart added. The suspect's vehicle was found at the scene and his home was searched.


I guess in his way of thinking he didn't gain some respect after all...

The shooter is apparently a self-avowed incel who wanted to get back at couples and society.
