The Boston Globe reports this morning “4 dead after police standoff at a Colo. townhome” — in now-infamous Aurora, CO:
Four people, including an armed suspect, died after an hours-long police standoff Saturday at a Colorado townhome, authorities said.
Police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson said a SWAT team was called after gunshots were heard at the Aurora, Colo., home at about 3 a.m. Investigators said three victims, all of them adults, appeared to have been killed before officers arrived.
Carlson said the suspect shot at officers at about 8:15 a.m. and was killed during a gunfight about 45 minutes later when police entered the home. It remained unclear if officers shot the suspect or if he shot himself.
Of course, we don’t know any of the specifics yet. I’m not sure it matters. I find this particularly ironic coming on the same morning that I read and welcomed the announcement of a “Sabbath to Stop Gun Violence” this weekend.
This unnecessary, savage, and pathological carnage will continue until civilized Americans put a stop to it.
