PostSubject: Six people injured in Phoenix, Arizona mass shooting   Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:26 pm

Here we go folks, more fuel for the anti-gun agenda coming at you via the media. I think it is strange the name of the officer spoken to was James Holmes. I can't wait to see the conspiracies that result from that alone. It is getting hard to believe there is no connection between all of these events. At least nobody was killed as of yet. Hopefully all the injured recover and the true motive for this crime is found. I'm sure the MSM will only care about the gun aspect of this crime. Also how many people does it take to be a mass shooting. It seems the media is quick to use that saying when more than one person is shot. I don't think this was a mass shooting or there would be a massive amount of victims. MSM logic at it's finest I guess.

Police confirmed that at least six people were injured, three of them shot, in the latest mass shooting in the US.

­The shooting occurred around 10:30 a.m. MST (12:30 p.m. EST) at an office building in Phoenix, Arizona. Police believe that the shooter is a white male in his 60s, who was seen fleeing the scene in a white SUV. After firing his gun and shooting at least five people, he escaped from police, who don’t know where the suspect is.

“At this point we don’t believe he is in the area,” said Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department. “This doesn’t appear to be a random type of incident.”

The building has been evacuated and the five victims hospitalized while police search the compound for any additional victims they might not have found. After being questioned by reporters, Officer James Holmes said the shooter appears to have been working alone and that the reason behind the attack remains unknown.

“We have no motive. It is right now a really fluid scene,” Holmes told AP.

­A witness in a neighboring office building told USA Today that there were at least 50 police cars, seven or eight fire trucks, and K-9 units at the scene of the shooting. The witness said he saw at least four people being taken out on stretchers.

Employees working in various areas of the building complex at which the shooting took place described hearing a number of gunshots and locked themselves into their offices. Vannessa Brogan, an employee working in the sales support department of an insurance business in the complex, described hearing a loud bang. Others in her office admitted hearing multiple loud noises, prompting employees to lock themselves in their offices until police evacuated the building.

“It was a little tense. Everybody came and hid in the IT room,” said Rob Hayter, an employee at Pioneer Title Agency.

­The office complex at which the shooting took place includes medical, law and insurance offices. After two victims were found lying on the ground on the back side of the building, personnel from the medical offices came out to help while waiting for the ambulances to show up.

The streets near the scene of the shooting remain heavily congested with traffic, as police have cordoned off a major intersection.

Authorities have also converged on a home near 28th Street and Greenway Road, which is about seven miles away from the office building in the 730 block of 16th street near Glendale Avenue. Police think the suspect might live in the house, but believe he is not currently there.

This most recent mass shooting occurred shortly after former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) spoke at a Senate hearing on gun control, urging the Senate Judiciary Committee to act courageously to curb gun violence in the US. Giffords was shot in the head in Jan. 2011 in a reported assassination attempt near Tucson, Arizona. The former congresswoman was critically injured and lost much of her ability to walk, speak, read and write.

Speaking slowly due to her impaired speech, Giffords urged Congress to work towards reducing gun violence.

“We must do something,” she said, looking up at the senators before her. “It will be hard. But the time is now. You must act. Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you.”

Later during the hearing, retired Navy captain and Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly said that while the session was underway, there had been another shooting in Arizona “with multiple victims”. Details about the shootings remained and continue to remain largely unknown, but he urged Congress to work towards tougher background checks, among other measures, to prevent “many of these murders and mass shootings in this country.”

Just a quick update from RT. Apparently one victim has died and the shooter has been identified.

Police confirmed that at least six people were injured in the latest mass shooting in the US. One victim has reportedly died of gunshot wounds, while two remain in severe condition as the ‘armed and dangerous’ suspect is still on the loose.

­The suspect, who was identified as a 70-year-old Arthur D. Harmon, remains at large and was described by police as "armed and dangerous."

One of the victims, a 48-year-old Steve Singer, the CEO of Fusion Contract Centers Inc, died in hospital. Police did not release the names of the other victims.
