    LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – A gunman entered a western Arizona home and began shooting, killing the mother of his two children and three others before fleeing with the kids to California where he fatally shot himself, police said Sunday.
    In all, six people died. Officers responding to the home said they found four people dead and two others wounded. One of the injured died of his wounds early Sunday at a local hospital, police said.
    The alleged gunman, identified as 26-year-old Brian Diez, was found dead hours later at a residence in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. The two young children — a 4-year-old and a 13-month-old — were unharmed at the house with relatives, police said.
    Police went to the Lake Havasu City home after dispatchers received an emergency call at 11:57 p.m. Saturday from a woman who said an intruder had shot several people.
    Police identified the dead as 23-year-old Deborah Langstaff, 24-year-old Primo Verdone, 42-year-old Russell Nyland and 20-year-old Ashley Nyland. Wounded were 20-year-old Brock Kelson and 44-year-old Deborah Nyland.
    Deborah Nyland and Kelson were taken to a local hospital, where Kelson died early Sunday, police said.
    Diez fathered the two children with Deborah Langstaff, but the couple had been estranged, Lake Havasu City police said. / this is the third one in about six weeks. gee things must be worse than i thought.

    A MAN KILLS PEOPLE WITH A GUN? IT'S ALL THE GUN'S FAULT! THE GUN MADE THE MAN GO CRAZY AND KILL 6 PEOPLE! BECAUSE HE USED A GUN, GUNS OBVIOUSLY CAUSE VIOLENCE! WE MUST BAN GUNS IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE GUNS CAUSE MORE VIOLENCE!

    /end liberal hippie douche thought process

    I'm afraid we are going to see a lot more of this as the economy worsens, people lose homes and jobs, and start feeling there's nothing left to live for.

    murders happen hundreds of times each second.
    it's not really a new thing.
     

  5. Sadly, that's the way the anti-gunners feel about and and probably how most of the media is going to portray it...

    Let's just hope he didn't steal the gun from some irresponsible moron that didn't feel or think he needed to secure his firearm/s? Not that it would make it any less asinine or tragic if he didn't steal it and had his own. But to know it maybe could have been prevented? Who knows?

    You need to steal guns in the USA? Aren't they easy enough to get already?

    Stress makes people go nut case sometimes.

    I have thought about it often enough. Getting divorced in Germany with the (IMO) unfair (socialist) laws that support (useless) mothers and give men a big disadvantage. Even though the thoughts crossed my mind, I still didn't do it. I probably would have felt better at the time, but I wouldn't have used a gun. I would have choked her with my bare hands. Thank God it's over with now. It's still unfair, but over with.

    Bad times can make you have bad thoughts. Most of us just don't act on them.
