Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
This story is still going on, in a sense.
But the shooting, it would appear, has finally stopped
at this particular incident.

The location is Westerly, Rhode Island.
This is a community on the shoreline,
very different in the summer than it is in the winter.
In the summer there are a lot of "summer-house"
part-time residents or visitors.
At this time of year, the population is much lower,
and many of the year-round residents are elderly.

The shooting location is
a group home of affordable housing
for low-income elderly and disabled.

The authorities went after the shooting suspect
who has just this moment been reported
dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Took a while to find the suspect, though,
and the whole area was on lockdown.

In the affordable-housing "village,"
three people were shot,
and one has been pronounced dead at hospital.
