    My son works here. He texted me to say they were all on lock down.

    No descriptions of the suspect (which probably means it isn't a white supremacist)

    Sounds like a personal thing, the guy shot a woman and then himself
    "the male shooter and a female victim known to the shooter were taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition, police said. Police can't confirm whether the man shot himself or was shot by police."

    Hope your son gets through his day without two much hassle

    Sounds like a domestic violence situation.
    Just don't understand people, get a divorce or move on.

    Memphis -- No. 2 on the list of most crime ridden cities in America. Working on being No. 1 but we just can't catch Detroit.

    I used to live at the Waterfront.

    One evening I was craving Chick Filet, so I metro'd over to somewhere near Crystal City and walked forever "underground" until I found the place. I'd never gone there until that day. A little creepy actually.

    I lived on Tennessee Ave in Alexandria and now, by coincidence, I live in Tennessee.

    Shelter in place? Um, like under the desk so its easier for the shooter to get you? Nope, gonna get outa there pronto, by secondary routes if possible, or find a room to barricade in.
