    2 dead in McDonalds shooting (MN)

    2 dead after shooting at Maple Grove McDonald's
    Associated Press
    Updated: 04/19/2009 1126 PM CDT


    MAPLE GROVE, Minn.—Police in Maple Grove say a man fatally shot a woman in the parking lot of a McDonald's restaurant, then died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound a short time later.
    The shooting occurred about 2 p.m. Sunday. Police found the victim in the parking lot. Witnesses described the suspect's vehicle, and police found it a short time later on the side of Interstate 694 not far away. The suspect, a man in his 20s, was dead inside.

    The victim, described as a woman in her 20s, has not been identified. Police said it's the first homicide in the Minneapolis suburb in eight years.

    It's the second shooting in a Twin Cities fast food restaurant's parking lot in about 12 hours time. Early Sunday, a 24-year-old man was shot and killed after an argument in the parking lot of a White Castle in Hopkins. Police there are looking for two suspects.

    This one happened literally right down the street from my house. I was there on Saturday evening, picking up a Happy Meal for my son. Maple Grove is a quiet, middle to upper middle class suburb.

    Granted, it's not like some wacko shot the place full of holes or anything, but it's still a massive reality check.....you just never know.

    Yep, you never know. No place is safe.

    It would be nice if these guys that kill other people then themselves would skip the first step. Justgo straight to killing their miserable selves and leave innocent people alone.

    There are studies concerning suicide...one of the conclusions is that it tends to infect others with the idea. Hence, one sees all the news concerning murder/suicide...then we get a rash of such.

    Is it the long cold winters up there or what?
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    Sounds like some sort of domestic dispute that spilled over. And as seems usual, the wussy men that do this are too much of a whimp to actually face their actions... so they either run away or kill themselves when someone bigger than them comes at them.
