Thoughts and prayers go out to the families who lost loved ones in this horrific tragedy, and well wishes for the individual injured to make a full and speedy recovery.
Let’s hope this incident wasn’t motivated by the racial tension currently ripping our nation apart.
We certainly don’t need any more of that right now.
