Thread Name: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Motive has yet to be established in the shooting
at the subsidized housing complex for elderly and disabled, low-income,
in Westerly, Rhode Island within the past seven days.
What has been established, however,
is the dead shooter's past history.
When his marriage ended in divorce in or around 2002,
the ex-husband was admitted to a mental hospital
in Providence, Rhode Island,
after threatening to kill his wife and himself.
Besides being committed to a mental hospital
and having his marriage end in divorce,
a family court judge issued a restraining order at the time.
As previously reported,
the man shot three women in the housing complex,
two of them employees/managers.
The victim who was killed was one of the complex managers.
The other two women remain in hospital,
one of them in critical condition.
