People in Eastern MD/DC area please watch out! This is serious.

I really didnt' know where to put this...but please put it where the most people will see it...

There have been several random fatal shootings in Montgomery County MD over the past 20 hours. The police have no idea what is going on...I posted this on a Tolkien board and one of the posters lived only a few blocks from one of the crime scenes..and had no idea what was happening.
So if you live or are travelling in these areas please take care!!!

From ABC newsonline:



Authorities were attempting to determine whether the shootings late Wednesday and early this morning were related. Investigators had not found any indication that the five victims were related in any way or had any conflict with anyone, Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose said.
Police were looking for two individuals in a white cargo van, possibly with damage at the back. Several witnesses told police they saw such a vehicle leaving some of the shooting scenes.

A 55-year-old man was killed in the parking lot of a Wheaton grocery store Wednesday, police spokeswoman Nancy Demme said.

Shootings at Two Gas Stations, Post Office

A man riding a lawnmower was killed about 7:45 a.m. today in the White Flint area, and another man was shot at 8:15 a.m. while pumping gas at a Mobil station in the Aspen Hill area. He died at the scene.

About a half-hour later, a woman died at a post office next to the Leisure World retirement community in Silver Spring. The woman was shot in the head, according to a spokesman for the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Department.

A woman was then shot about 10 a.m. at a Shell gas station in Kensington. Mechanics at the gas working said they heard the shots but didn't see the person or persons who killed the woman, who was vacuuming her van.

"We didn't see any confrontation or anybody around her," mechanic John Mistery said.

As a precaution, Montgomery County schools canceled all outdoor activities and locked down school buildings. No one was being allowed to leave or enter school buildings unless a parent calls ahead to retrieve their children. District of Columbia schools also canceled outdoor activities.

The lockdown would remain in effect until police said it was safe to lift the restrictions, schools spokeswoman Kate Harrison said.

Evil is in this world - a man was killed in Minneapolis by a group of kids with shovels and tree branches. Do you want to ban trees too?


Our prayers are with those in the MD/DC area.

Actually, it was Milwaukee...though I know that is not the point.
