    What would possess anyone to shoot and kill innocent human beings? Sound as though he/they/she is on a revenge path.

    What do most people do with their free time or when they get bored? Read,play games, sleep? These people are going around shooting people. This isn’t Gand Theft Auto. When you shoot someone they can die and never come back. May God have mercy on the people that are doing this.
