Fed Ex shooting near Airport (close to home)

I heard a little about this but it suddenly hit close to home to know that one of the victims that didn't make it was the father of our very own Lisardo.

I know she hasn't posted on the Drome in eons but she's devastated by the news as am I since it was a shocker.

I'm just shocked, we hear about these things all the time, and yeah they're terrible but you know, we carry on with our day. It's shocking when it affects someone you know. I can't even imagine what she's going through right now.

The shooter was IDed. Apparently he was a former FedEx employee. So it sounded like your typical disgruntled employee who probably got fired.

Thanks for letting us know. So sorry for her and her family. So tragic. Sounds like you're still in touch with her, please pass on condolences if you would.

That's just ... shocking.

I hope that the injured will recover safely. I hope that the victims will be able to rest in peace. My thoughts are with all of their loved ones.

I will. I added her on FB back when she was on the Drome and we just never lost touch.

It's just terrible. All cause one dude flipped his **** upon being fired. Like at least go after who you're going after, don't just fire at random.

My sympathies to Lisardo and her family and the families of the other victims. May Lisardo's father and the other victims be happy in heaven.

What gets me are stories like this that seem to come out of a lot of these mass shooting events: that the FBI interviewed the shooter or the shooter was known to them in some way. Why do they feel the need to let us know that when all it seems to do is speak to their incompetence? Seems like they could have done something to stop some of these...but just...you know...didn't.

Jeeze, that's awful. I never met Lisardo's dad but I did meet her mom once.

My understanding is right now Liz is busy trying to get to her mom (sounds like they live in different states) so they can be there for each other during all this.

I was reading some of their posts where they found out about her dad being one of the victims but without being allowed to know what happened until the authorities were 'allowed' to finally speak. My god, all that waiting must have been torture, only to find out that the worst came true.
