This little  ...

Acquitted of a double murder last year so this gun lover goes for three murders this year.

If he is he'll probably go for four murders next year.
We take good care of our gun lovers in the USA

Plus three sundry gun murders in my local area in the past two days.... nothing unusual. {:soso_e139:}

Man arrested on charges of killing twins, sitter
Associated PressBy By | Associated Press – 6-9-12

SELMA, Ala. (AP) — A man charged with killing 9-year-old twins and their 73-year-old baby sitter has been arrested
in Alabama.

Prosecutor Michael Jackson says 22-year-old Deandra (dee-AHN'-dray) Marquis Lee was arrested Saturday morning in Selma.
Authorities found him at an apartment complex after someone called in a tip to a hotline set up by state officials.

Jackson says Lee didn't resist when authorities arrived to arrest him.

Lee is wanted in the slayings of Jordan Dejerinett and his sister Taylor, plus 73-year-old Jack Mac Girdner.
Authorities say Girdner was a retired anesthesiologist who sometimes cared for the children. The bodies of all three
were found Tuesday in rural Lowndes County. Police say they were shot.

The search for Lee was concentrated in Dallas County, where he was acquitted in a double murder last year.

Police: 3 killed in shooting near Auburn University
By BOB JOHNSON and JOHNNY CLARK | The Associated Press – June 10, 2012

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Investigators were searching for a gunman who killed three people - including two former Auburn
University football players - and wounded three others at a pool party near campus after several men began punching
each other in a fight over a woman, authorities and witnesses said Sunday.

One of the wounded was shot in the head and critically hurt. Another was a current player, Eric Mack.

Desmonte Leonard opened fire at the party at an apartment complex near the university, Auburn Police Chief Tommy
Dawson said. Federal marshals and police were searching for Leonard, who faces three counts of capital murder.

Slain were Edward Christian, who had not been playing because of a back injury, and Ladarious Phillips, who had
previously quit playing football. The other person killed was 20-year-old Demario Pitts.

Officials also said Xavier Moss and John Robertson were wounded. Robertson had been shot in the head and was in
critical condition; Moss was released from the hospital.

''The only connection that the Auburn football team has to this is they are victims of a brutal shooting. Sometimes
the young men get a bad rap, I feel like, but they are the victims today,'' Dawson said.

Police say Desmonte Leonard has been charged with capital murder and has not yet been captured. Dawson urged Leonard
to turn himself in and also said authorities were searching for two other persons of interest.

Dawson stressed that the football team was connected to the shooting only because current and former players were
victims. He said he did not know why the party was being held, or what sparked the fight.

''Them being football players really has nothing to do with this. They're victims of a shooting,'' Dawson said.

Turquorius Vines, 23, said he was at the pool party Saturday evening at the University Heights apartments with one of
his friend, Pitts. He said he and his friend were approached by two other men who started arguing with them over a woman.

Vines said he punched one of the men, while Pitts hit both of the men over the head with a bottle. Either one or both
of the two men then started shooting, he said. He said his friend was shot and killed, while two others also were hit
by gunfire. Vines said he had never before seen the men who he had been arguing with.

''It's like I lost a lung,'' Vines said of his friend. ''I don't know how I'm going to survive this.''

Several emergency vehicles had converged overnight around the University Heights apartment complex where reports
indicated a number of students who attend Auburn University typically reside. The building was swathed in yellow
police tape.

It appeared that the shooting happened in an archway near the apartment complex information center, near the edge of
the parking lot. Five uniformed officers guarded the area, which was sealed off with crime scene tape, and a handful
of crime scene investigators were at work.

Mack, the wounded player, is a junior offensive lineman from St. Matthews, S.C. He played in five games last season.
Coach Gene Chizik said Mack was expected to make a full recovery.

Christian is an offensive lineman who was out last season while dealing with a back injury. Phillips was a backup
fullback. Chizik said in April that Phillips had decided to give up football.

A person who answered the phone at the home of Phillips' mother declined comment and said his family was too
distraught to comment.

''Nobody should ever have to endure such unimaginable grief, and we will love and support the victims' families
during this terribly difficult time,'' Chizik said. ''We have a lot of people on our football team that are hurting
right now and we're going to do everything we can to help them get through this.''

Oakland: No suspects in cyclist's shooting death
Casey Newton -- San Francisco Chronicle
Monday, June 11, 2012

police said.

The shooting took place near 63rd and Avenal avenues around 4:15 p.m. Saturday, police said. The victim, whose name
has not been released, was on his bike when someone shot him from inside a passing vehicle.

The victim was taken to Highland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Sacramento shooting kills 4 - gunman believed dead
Associated Press
Monday, June 11, 2012

Sacramento --

Authorities sought a motive Sunday after an assailant entered a Sacramento home and shot three people to death, police
said. A fourth person who has been determined to be a suspect also died, while a fifth person was wounded and was in
critical condition.

Officers who responded to reports of gunfire at the home Saturday night found three men and one woman dead, police
spokeswoman Officer Michelle Gigante said. One of the dead, determined to be a suspect, was shot by someone inside the
house who had confronted him, Gigante said.

Investigators weren't sure if there were additional suspects.

Late Sunday afternoon, more than a dozen people gathered just outside of the crime scene tape that cordoned off the
home and the entire block of the residential neighborhood of one-story homes.

Television news trucks were parked nearby, while reporters looked on and children rode their bicycles and played in
nearby yards.

Authorities still hadn't released the names of the victims, but neighbor Mai Thao, who previously lived on the same
block, said she knew the victims.

"They're really nice people," she said. "They're always quiet and looked really happy."

Two of the victims were described as shamans - spiritual elders - in the Hmong community.

The surviving victim remained in critical but stable condition Sunday, Gigante said, but she declined to provide
additional details.

Police initially described the killings as occurring during a home invasion, but Gigante later said investigators
don't know the motive. Authorities have determined that some gang members may have been involved, and the attack
"doesn't seem like it was random," Gigante said.

Two of the victims were residents of the home, and two were what Gigante described as guests.

(06-11) 10:47 PDT OAKLAND -- A man was shot and killed Sunday night in Oakland, police said.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was shot on the 2200 block of Foothill Boulevard, across from Garfield
Elementary School, about 10:50 p.m. He died at the scene.

In a separate incident, a man shot dead while riding a dirt bike in East Oakland was identified Monday as 21-year-old
Justin Shoemaker of Oakland.

Shoemaker was shot near the corner of 63rd and Avenal avenues about 4:15 p.m. Saturday.

No arrests have been made in either slaying.
