    New Jersey Shopping Plaza Shootout Leaves Three Dead

    The man suspected of killing two people early this morning at a New Jersey Pathmark before shooting himself to death during a confrontation with police is believed to be a 23-year-old former Marine who worked at the grocery store for two weeks, according to WABC-TV.

    The suspect left the Old Bridge, N.J., shopping plaza at about 4 a.m. and returned, having changed into camouflage clothing, armed with an AK-47 and an automatic handgun, authorities told WABC, which reported that both victims, a man and a woman, were young adults.

    Police had responded to shots inside the Pathmark on Route 9 at 4 a.m.

    Authorities believe the man killed two before turning the gun on himself, according to WABC. There's no word on his motive.

    "This is the worst phone call a mayor can receive," Old Bridge Mayor Owen Henry told NewJersey.com of the information he obtained about 6:30 a.m. "You can prepare for these things but you can't prevent them."

    Several employees were inside the store, which was preparing to open at 6 a.m. Two windows near the entrance to the Pathmark were shot out.

    Numerous employees were taken across the street to a T.G.I. Friday's and many were being treated for trauma at waiting ambulances.

    The scene is now under control, according to WABC, and there were emergency responders in the plaza parking lot who had been standing in front of the store for some time.

    That IS funny. I think it was under control when the guy shot himself. Nice touch to blame the Marines ... indirectly

    I was at my local post office and a 70+yr old lady noted by old dog tags and said "thanks for your service" (she does work at a local VFW). I told her no need to thank me, it was a job .. I got paid. And then I told her that armies can only take away our freedom, not give it. She thought about that and said "yeah, I guess you're right"...

    Like McCoy said "I choose the danger!"

    Oh, this is a brilliant piece of reporting. Were more people shot? Or, did the employees suddenly start fighting amongst themselves at the momentary breakdown of law and order?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
