Putting the bit in your headline about the elderly lady who sprained her ankle wile running out to the parking lot is a very cheap shot.
If anything you could have mentioned there the man who might have been struck by ricochet fragments (or concrete wall spalling fragments) in the hallway where the alleged shooting allegedly occurred.
What I want to know is how this could have happened in the first place? Doesn't Regency Square prohibit firearms? Somebody's got some 'splainin' to do!
From an unnamed eye witness there was a fairly massive (12 to 15 units) response and they were reported to be hauling around eeeeeeevillllllllll black rifles. The news readers are all saying they were respoding to an active shooter situation, but I have not heard or read anything about how many of them went in immediately upon arrival, which is supposed to be astate-of-the-art response to active shooter incidents. (Just ask the folks up in Prince George's County where they scheduled the unannounced drill a few months ago.) Or is Henricio still working off the Columbine/Virginia Tech memo?
Given the fact that there was a single shot and it took place in a fairly isolated part of the mall, my plan of action most likely would have been to get low, assess the situation for any identifiable BGs moving anywhere near me, and looking for the nearest potted palm to take cover behind. If I were breaking the rules (something you all know I would never do and absolutely do not condone in others) I would not be reaching for anything until/unless I saw a clearly identifiable BG heading straight for me. I prefer to be the best witness I can while keeping all parts of me behind cover.
