Default Dallas shootings

DALLAS A former teacher who moonlighted as a hip-hop dancer entertaining NBA crowds has been arrested in the fatal shooting of four people in two Dallas-area homes, and police were investigating Thursday if he used a grenade or other explosive in one of the attacks.

Investigators arrested Erbie Bowser, 44, on Wednesday night at the second crime scene, DeSoto police Cpl. Melissa Franks said. Charges are pending, she said.

Four people were also wounded in the attacks. Franks said the attacks were a domestic incident and that investigators were trying to determine how Bowser knew the victims.

The first shooting took place at a house in southwest Dallas late Wednesday and the second happened about 15 minutes later in DeSoto, some 10 miles away, Dallas police Sgt. Warren Mitchell said.

Police were called around 10:30 p.m. to the home in Dallas where they found four gunshot victims. A mother and her daughter were killed and a 14-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl were wounded. A relative discovered the bodies.

The gunman then fled to DeSoto, where he is suspected of killing two women. Two boys, ages 11 and 13, were shot but survived that attack, Franks said.

My question isn't about gun control but why do people like this suddenly snap and go shoot up the neighborhood or their workplace or their own family?? I know there are some very mentally unbalanced people or doing drugs but what makes a normal seeming person grab some guns and go on a warpath???

A question we ourselves as responsable gun owners.... Its a shame so many lives lost because of 1 person....Concealed 27
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
