    ****ing hell. That literally looks like something out of a film.

    The face on your one when it cuts back to the studio says it all.

    When I saw the title I thought it was going to be reporters somewhere in the middle east or near a conflict of some sort, but no a local representative talking about bringing tourism to the area, just crazy. Poor people and families RIP


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,564 ✭✭✭✭whiskeyman


    I think you can make out possibly the shooters legs as the camera goes down?
    Probably a jilted ex boyfriend or someone with a really bad grudge on the TV station?
    Bizarre.

    Crazy stuff. RIP to the two murdered. Such senseless killings.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 768 ✭✭✭SpaceSasqwatch


    you can see the shooters feet as he is walking by the camera towards the end of the clip.

    Madness


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,039 ✭✭✭timmyntc


    This is what the camera caught. Chilling stuff alright.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,802 ✭✭✭✭suicide_circus


    holy ****

    RIP.

    Would love to hope this would change things. It won't. The situation in the US will continue to deteriote until the only way people can interact with each other will be by screaming at one another from heavily armed and armoured tanks.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,572 ✭✭✭ahnowbrowncow


    I'm guessing the other person that died was the camera man?

    It's not graphic but it's horrible hearing and seeing the absolute fear from the journalist in their last few seconds.

    Jaysus like something out of a halloween film

    Mad country altogether


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,420 ✭✭✭Lollipops23


    That footage is chilling.


    From what I could tell, they were reporting on something pretty innocuous, why on earth did that lunatic target them?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,148 ✭✭✭PizzamanIRL


    WTF drives people to just go out and kill like that? Completely pathetic pricks.

    Was he not caught yet?

    Sandy hook was supposed to be the major turning point all that happend then was shops screamed a ban was coming and caused a massive upsurge in sales of semi auto rifles ,hicapcity magazines and ammo.
    Ban never came and more guns got sold to the massively paronoid delusional public
