UPDATE: Dead 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.
