Fox News reports that a man has shot himself in the head in a shooting in a parking garage in a small town in the arizona. Police have not identified the shooter yet, but he is hospitalized and is in a critical condition. The shooting happened at a parking garage in the city of arizona on june 21.
It’s hard to explain the shooting because it’s just so weird. A man just shot himself in the head in a parking garage in a small town in the arizona, but everyone is fine. There is no obvious connection between the two and no obvious suspects identified.
I guess that’s the key to this case I think, the lack of obvious connection. We’ve had a few cases where people just shoot themselves in the head in airports, but these cases are often the result of an accident. People are not always thinking clearly when they do this, and it ends up being a suicide.
So to answer your question a bit, yes, the shooting wasn’t the result of a random chance incident. Instead it was a result of a failed attempt to commit suicide by gun, and as such it was a senseless act of violence. Suicide has been a known problem in the arizona for decades. More than sixty attempts were made in the arizona in the years prior to the shooting, with all but one of those attempts ending in suicide.
The case of the shooting in arizona is not unique or uncommon, but the story of a man who committed suicide by his own gun is. The story of James Holmes, who killed twelve people and injured dozens in a shooting spree in a hotel in Colorado in 2012, is not unknown. He was a successful criminal and was finally arrested when a body was found in the hotel. The story of Michael Brown and his family in Ferguson, Missouri, is not unknown.
The story of James Holmes is as common as the stories of many of the other victims of gun violence. The story of Michael Brown is not as common as the stories of some of those who came to visit Brown after he was arrested. The story of the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting is not common. The story of the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting is not unknown. The story of the Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school shooting is not common.
The tragedy that is the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting is the most prominent, but that does not mean it is the most common. The Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting is not common. The Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting is not unknown. The Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting is not common.
I will say that I have not personally experienced a shooting, but I have read about a lot of them, and I have been there. The thing that makes me doubt this is that in the past few years the number of mass shootings that I have read about has dropped. So it’s not that we have stopped hearing about mass shootings. It’s just that we are more likely to experience them in the news.
And the thing that makes me doubt that is the fact that the day after the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, a mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, and then another mass shooting in a movie theater just a few miles away from their last, has the same number of news reports. And those two mass shootings, despite being in different states, are the same story.
There is evidence to suggest that mass shootings can trigger heightened awareness. The most obvious explanation, of course, is that the news media is not reporting on the same events happening in the same locations, but the similarities are there. This isn’t to say that mass shootings are in any way more likely to happen that others.
