Sorry for the families of those killed, if it happened. The video is very short, with no evidence that anyone was killed. Yes, shots are heard, with the reporter reacting, but still no evidence. Found it interesting also that the camera pans back to the reporter just before the shots are fired as if to catch the reaction of the reporter. Not sure if this was just good timing or staged.
Wow… I missed this one earlier. I thought Angel posted the first article on this story.
Stronger coffee, maybe.
