Employee kills two people then himself in New Jersey using AK47 gun.

Recommended Posts

Aren't AK47s legal to own in the US?

RIP to the two people who died

A New Jersey supermarket employee dressed in military clothing opened fire at the closed store early Friday as a dozen or more colleagues worked inside, killing two of them and himself, a prosecutor said.

The 23-year-old man left a Pathmark in Old Bridge Township around 3:30 a.m. and returned a half-hour later with a handgun and an AK-47 assault rifle, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan said.

There were 12 to 14 people in the store at the time, Kaplan said. The man fired the rifle at the first workers he saw, killing an 18-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man as other workers hid, Kaplan said. At least 16 rounds were fired, some breaking the front windows.

He then killed himself, said Kaplan, who did not release the name of the gunman or either victim. The motive is under investigation.

John Niccollai, president of a foodworkers union that represents some store employees, said Pathmark officials and employees told him the gunman wore military clothing and had just punched out for the night before coming back into the store and opening fire.

Many of the employees escaped gunfire, Niccollai said, when an assistant manager, whom he called a “hero,” helped many workers to get out of the store through the back door.

Kaplan and police walked through the shooting scene at the supermarket Friday morning, with two long windows in the front completely shot through. Police kept onlookers away; a number of vehicles were in the parking lot outside, along with police cars.

The store and its parking lot were closed. Pathmark officials had no immediate comment.

Old Bridge is a bedroom community of about 65,000 about 40 kilometres from Manhattan and just across the Raritan Bay from New York City's Staten Island borough.

New Jersey Transit closed its nearby park-and-ride lot and told riders that they could park in other park-and-ride lots or could ride a different rail line.

What is with all these gun nuts lately?!?

Have they always been going on and just recently been brought to national attention, or is it just some sort of weird spree like all those people eating other people?!?

But who are we to argue with his right to own an AK47?!? I mean, that was the dream of the Founding Fathers, right?!?

There should be more guns available to be purchased by law-abiding citizens.

Only after a law-abiding citizen dresses in army fatigues, or body armour, or like batman, and kills numerous people and then dies, should we ever think about regulating that person's ability to possess guns.

yeehaw.

But, but, but making ownership of guns legal should give people no excuse for not being able to defend themselves right? :rolleyes:

no one would ever think to use a gun against others if everyone had one.

Guns don't kill people...........people kill people.

They are just way more efficient at it when they can get their hands on an AK-47.

Why? If they shoot you first - you can't retaliate. Then they take your gun, your boots and the keys to your motorcycle.

because it makes sense. if a person wants to die and goes on a shooting rampage, he is going to care that the opposition has a weapon. see, sense.

seriously i shouldn't be kidding around in a thread about people dying. i'm sorry

RIP. So sad. So many shootings have been going on lately. I wonder what it will take for them to change it. The only reason they arent changing it right now is because if Obama changes it everyone is going to be pissed and him and vote for Romney.

I love the logic of the anti-gun legislation people - who claim that the solution to preventing gun violence is allowing more guns on the streets!

Let's have more AK-47's, to deter others from using their AK-47's?

New Jersey gun laws are probably overall more restrictive than Canada's, and the penalties for breaking the law there are also much more severe than in Canada, so I don't see how it's a gun control issue.

Anyway, just wait until the economic system really collapses and takes society down with it, you ain't seen nothing yet...
