OAKDALE MN SHOOTING: A 10 year old boy was killed on Oakdale, Minn., after being hit by a gunman who was firing randomly on vehicles near a Rainbow Foods store about 6:10 p.m. Monday evening. The child’s mother and another woman were also wounded in the shooting. The suspected shooter was arrested by police without incident.
A woman pulled into the parking lot of the nearby Rainbow, the back window and both rear tires of her minivan shot out. Her 10-year-old boy had been shot in the head, witnesses said.
Oakdale Police Chief Bill Sullivan said the boy died at Regions Hospital in St. Paul. The condition of the mother, who was shot in the arm, was not known late Monday, though she was expected to recover, Sullivan said.
The third victim — a 68-year-old Oakdale woman who relatives identified only as “Karen” — pulled up to the corner of Seventh and Hadley, when the man began shooting from a nearby snowbank, according to the woman’s granddaughter, who asked not to be identified. Source
This is clearly another senseless murder. So, now kids can’t ride in their parents’ vehicles without being worried about gunfire hitting them? This is crazy. Where does this end? There are too many sick people and criminals walking around with guns. I hope President Obama will talk about gun control during his State of the Union address Tuesday night.
