America insist’s on its damn right to be crazy!
In the newest installment of ‘I have been shot dead by a gunman on a shooting massacre binge’ comes the tragic incident of four firefighters being shot at this morning whilst responding to a house fire in Webster, NY. Of the four shot at, two are now dead.
As the fire continues to spread and threatens now to take over additional houses (it has already claimed two other houses) firefighters have been prohibited from tackling the blaze because the gunman is still on the loose.
Webster Fire Marshal Rob Boutillier told reporters his crew will move in once the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office confirms that it is safe to do so.
abc: Among the dead firefighters was Lt. Michael Chiapperini, a 20-year veteran of the Webster Police Department and “lifetime firefighter,” according to Pickering. Chiapperini was a spokesman for the police department, ABC News affiliate WHAM reported.
Police identified the other firefighter killed as Tomasz Kaczowka, who WHAM reported also was a 911 dispatcher.
The surviving firefighter’s names have been releases as Theodore Scardino and Joseph Hofsetter.
“It’s a very dificult situation,” said Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering as he fought back tears during an emotional news conference.
“People get up in the middle of the night to fight fires,” Pickering said. “They don’t expect to get shot and killed.”
It is believed the shooter purposefully started the blaze to pick off at innocent people. No real motive at present is understood as to what inspired the gunman who momentarily ago was found deceased after also shooting himself dead.
Aren’t you glad you live in a country where news reports of individuals running around shooting innocent people dead is now a weekly occurrence that keeps you heartily entertained. Until that is you too get shot dead as well…
If only we could understand how the violence became so pandemic….
