Five Shot Dead in Illinois

UPDATEDead now listed as grandmother, young couple, two kids, age 1 and 5, and the other kid in serious condition.

Earlier: Yes, I know, there were dozens seriously injured in Boston, with a number of amputations, but the three dead is equaled or topped at least once a week in multiple shootings around the USA.   Today's example:  five killed overnight in Illinois.  Suspect was on the loose for a couple of hours, then captured.  "The pastor of Manchester Baptist Church tells KSDK-TV that the shootings took place inside a public housing complex. At least one of the victims is a child, according to the Scott County Sheriff's Department."  Apparently one girl survived.  These were the first murders in the town in 43 years.
