Wife chased her husband out of a restaurant and shot him dead in the street before killing herself..
DM ^

Posted on 06/07/2014 9:54:15 AM PDT by traumer

A woman reportedly shot dead her husband in front of a packed suburban Atlanta supermarket before then turning the gun on herself.

Paula Strange, 54, is said by police to have shot dead 52-year-old husband Bruce Strange at a Marietta, Georgia Kroger just after 5.30 p.m., authorities said. It happened only minutes after an argument over dinner at a nearby restaurant, a source told MailOnline.

The Kennesaw, Georgia couple was eating at a Mo’s Southwest Grill in the same shopping plaza where the shooting occurred less than half an hour before they were both dead, a person who answered the phone in the fast food joint told MailOnline.

‘They were in our store eating, I assumed they were having an argument,’ the source said, adding that he wasn't sure what the disagreement was about. The husband then abruptly got up and left the restaurant.

‘The gentleman went to the bathroom, ran out the door, jumped over the patio fence and ran behind the restaurant,’ the worker said. Witnesses told WXIA the Kennesaw State University associate director of research compliance chased after him in her Honda Element, racing the engine and shouting at him.

He shouted back as he ran towards the supermarket, possibly to escape her.

I like the one comment claiming that pissed off gun owners are very dangerous and that there are tons of them around the U.S.

Now I’m scared to walk outside...

Love Is Strange
Love, love is strange
Lot of people take it for a game
Once you get it
You’ll never wanna quit (no, no)
After you’ve had it (yeah, yeah)
You’re in an awful fix
Many people
Don’t understand (no, no)
They think loving (yeah, yeah)
Is money in the hand
Your sweet loving
Is better than a kiss
When you leave me
Sweet kisses I miss

MICKEY:
Silvia...

SILVIA:
Yes Mickey?

MICKEY:
How do you call your loverboy?

SILVIA:
Come ‘ere loverboy!!

MICKEY:
And if he doesnt answer?

SILVIA:
Ohh loverboy!

MICKEY:
And if he STILL doesnt answer?

SILVIA:
I pull the trigger!

Seems she had no prospects for his further compliance under her direction. It's a shame she didn't just point the gun at herself first.

If you tell her she’s fat you better mean phat (pretty, hot and tempting). Otherwise, it is off to strangerland for you, buddy!

“Paula Strange, 54, is said by police to have shot dead 52-year-old husband Bruce Strange”

I forwarded this story on to my Grandson, who is getting married next month along with a note warning him of the dangers of getting married.
And especially the dangers of marrying someone older than he is.

Best line:

'It's just mind-blowing,' one person told the station. 'You come to Kroger to get some groceries... and find out that there is somebody with some kind of issue in their life.'

Never a duh moment.

Everybody’s talking and no one says a word
Everybody’s making love and no one really cares
There’s Nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs
Always something happening and nothing going on
There’s always something cooking and nothing in the pot
They’re starving back in China so finish what you got

Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Strange days indeed — strange days indeed

I had a lady stop me a few years ago in a Kroger and ask me if I could help her contact the alien living in the store. I thought she was thinking, Mexican, but no, it was more like a little green guy she was looking for.

I guessed right away she was fat and not too attractive. Her younger husband most likely made a comment about a young hottie. She took offense and decided to end it as she and he were never satisfied by their collective obesity.

I have visited such so-called restaurants down south. They are nothing but troughs for feeding diabetics and what we used to call obesity f**ks. The food sucks but if there is enough sugar and fat, people will pay their $10 to get fatter.

Yea, such a tragedy, NOT....

“Fat and not too attractive” is always what guys use an an excuse to follow the temptation of dipping the wick outside the marriage.

I think she looks like a perfectly nice respectable lady. Whatdya bet ole hubby was feeling his age and just told her he was leaving for greener pastures?

Dudes, don’t take the vow if you think you can bail later.

I’m guessing that the reason he ran was because she had threatened him, which she then followed through on. She probably had a history of mental instability.

That's my guess too. Marrieds who kill each other usually don't do it in response to some petty irritation.
