    2 students injured as man opens fire at SoCal school, construction workers tackle suspect.

    A gunman opened fire on a crowded school playground Friday, grazing two young children with bullets before construction workers tackled him, authorities said.

    The suspect parked his car around noon, jumped a fence and opened fire as he walked across campus in the north San Diego suburb, said Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain. The students, ages 6 and 7, were taken to a hospital with bullet graze wounds in their right arms.

    The suspect, Brendan L. O'Rourke, 41, was arrested on suspicion of six counts of attemped murder and numerous weapons violations, Cain said. He is believed to have acted alone.

    "He is possibly a transient who lives in the area," Cain said. "He is not cooperating with the investigation. He probably has some mental health issues."

    I live a few miles from this school. We had a crazy shooter in a gun free zone in a gun free county* in a gun free state*. We were so lucky this time. This man was crazy. A Mumbai event would have been much much worse.

    * Few of us can get CCW permits in San Diego county, the site of the shooting, and California is a "may issue" state.

    Finally, a 'shovel-ready' construction project that actually worked!

    thank you to the construction workers. Imagine had someone had to wait for 911 to come through?

    The incident would have probably ended sooner had the construction workers had their own guns or if a teacher had possessed a gun. Gun free zones are more hazardous than an artillery impact range.
