A man was killed and there is only this vague, little blurb in the local paper? The headline does not even mention that he was killed. I don't understand how news gets prioritised this way. My deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Mr. Rankin

Ok, now I see the date on this story is 2004, but how did it end up on page one of the comments? I hope they caught the shooter, because there was a shooting in EPA again this week, very similar situation. Sad to see nothing has changed there since '04.
