    Woman opens fire at Gig Harbor market; two men hit | NWCN.com Washington - Oregon - Idaho

    Two people were hurt in a shooting at a Gig Harbor market on Saturday.

    The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department says a woman walked into the store at Lake Kathryn Village shopping center and shot two people.

    Before police flooded the store parking lot, Peggy Ensor was sitting outside the local food mart selling raffle tickets.

    "I asked her if she wanted to buy a ticket, she was very calm and she said no not today and she went into the store," said Ensor.

    She says moments later, that woman's demeanor completely changed.

    "She was in there screaming and hollering ... I couldn't hear what she was saying ... but the next thing I knew she threw her arms up, and pop, pop, pop and the next thing I know there was two men down," said Ensor.

    The woman fired number of shots, two striking two people. A 76-year-old man was shot in the leg, and a man in his 30s was shot in the abdomen.

    “Two of the citizens here courageously, in my opinion, stepped forward and threw this young woman to the ground and literally sat on her to control her,” said Sheriff Paul Pastor.

    The two victims are expected to survive.

    “We believe at this time this was a random shooting situation,” said Pastor.

    A witness said the woman was targeting men because of something that had happened to her in the past.

    Police say the suspect has no criminal history but they believe there is a mental health history

    Gee, ya think?
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    A dangerous move if you are unarmed, but again "average" citizens stop further violence.

    crazy things happen everyday and at every location, be prepared, carry always
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    This could have been another real bad shooting that was thwarted.

    The kennel where my dog stays when we travel is right accross the street from this place. Gig Harbor would be one of those places poeple will always seem suprised that "it happened HERE!?!?". Fortunately noone was killed, and hopefully this will wake up a few of the liberals around here.

    They will probably demand the passage of laws that will prevent this sort of violence from occurring.

    So, I don't know how much this will matter, but the shooter was only 20. She shouldn't have been able to get a handgun, right? Lets hope she didn't get it at a gun show, or there will be more calls to "close the loophole". I get really sick of people talking about that.

    Glad I'm not the only one who gets upset by having to dodge panhandlers or folks trying to take my money when I try to enter a store.
    Just kidding, sorta.
