We focus on the big mass shootings…those which make headlines that continue for weeks…Aurora, Sandy Hook, Fort Hood, Sikh Temple, Binghamton, NY.
But other, less deadly shootings are more the norm…all across the nation, as folks sort out their domestic conflicts or drug dealings with lethal results. We count the killings that occur with unwavering frequency in Covina, Hamilton, Hazard, every town…and now Albuquerque.
This weekend’s shooting is in Albuquerque…five are dead, father, mother and three children. The 15 year old shooter, Nehemiah Griego is in custody. Each victim had been shot multiple times. The victims were members of the Griego family, who neighbors described as active in the church, that the father is a pastor and that the family had 10 children, one of whom appears to be the shooter. A Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department spokesman said several guns were found inside the home, including a “military-style” rifle that had been used in the crime.
