    Ghent Starbucks closed after shots shatter windows

    Shots were fired into the Starbucks Coffee shop on Colley Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. today, shattering the plate-glass windows. No one was inside at the time, said a police spokeswoman.

    The first of several calls to the police came in at 2:27 a.m. Police are investigating the shooting.

    At 7 a.m., outside the shop, an employee was posted to greet approaching customers.

    “We’re not open today,” the woman told one passer-by. “We have a drive-through window.”

    A nearby Starbucks on West 21st Street remained open.

    Starbucks is the largest retail chain targeted this year by gun owners who want to exercise and advertise their rights in states, such as Virginia, that allow people to openly carry firearms, The Associated Press has reported. Private businesses are allowed to ban them, but Starbucks responded with a statement that its stores would follow state and local laws and allow firearms here.

    Norfolk police haven’t seen protests by either gun owners or those objecting to open displays of guns in coffee shops, said Master Police Officer Chris Amos, a department spokesman.

    “Again, we don’t know if Starbucks was even targeted,” Amos said today. “We know it was hit. Was somebody standing in front of it?”

    Pilot writer Matthew Bowers contributed to this report.

    Would it be totally insane to think maybe the antis would try something like this?

    Ehh nothing can be taken from this single incident.

    For all we know it was purely happenstance or possibly even some anti-carry moron trying to stir the Starbucks carry policy pot.

    While one incident doesn't give many indications I would not put anything past the antis. How many school shootings happened while one president is in office compared to other presidents? Are there any patterns? Seems like there are more publicized shootings while a democratic president than a republican.
