To be helpful, Mc Kinny is not a suburb of Dallas. It is the County Seat of Collin County.

Long hot summer. Heat index is 107 right now in McKinney. Maybe his air conditioning went out?

“To be helpful, Mc Kinny is not a suburb of Dallas. It is the County Seat of Collin County.”

Agreed. Not my headline. I think Yahoo does that because they assume the average reader would not know where McKinney is in Texas...

I’m surprised they haven’t identified him as a gun toting tea partier yet.

He really shot the crap out of the police station. Over 100 rounds and shot out more than 20 windows.

The police responded with “an unknown number of rounds”.

It is amazing with all those bullets flying around only the the shooter was hit.
