'Horrendous' Scene: 3 Kids, Woman Slain In Home

Neighbors are in shock after a shooting rampage in Chicago's Marquette Park neighborhood left a woman and three children dead overnight. Two others were hospitalized.

Chicago Police picked up the suspect on foot without incident a few miles away at 59th Street and Racine Avenue. A weapon was recovered from a car nearby.

Family members said the suspect was visiting from Madison, Wis. The big question is what made him open fire on his whole family.

"He just went crazy. He shot everybody in the house," said Ella Smith, an aunt of one of the victims.

She says while her brother was behind bars in Wisconsin, he had become a Muslim. Sources say he told them he had been hearing voices that told him to kill his family. Sources also say he had planned on killing more people in the house, but had run out of bullets.

As I guessed, the family was black. It says he became a Muslim while in prison. A Black Muslim, I would guess. I wonder if he was converted by another prisoner, or by a Muslim chaplain provided at taxpayer expense?

I am beginning to think that Muslims might not be well adjusted

It’s more important than jobs or defense apparently.

Sounds like the reasons are more schizophrenic than “Muslim”...

Strange how he was hearing voices but had sense enough to run away. Sickening.

Even if they did identify him by name, they would have never used his Muslim name. It's no surprise to me it took most of the article from the government run media to say he was Black, converted to Muslim in prison and yelling Allah when he was attacking and killing his own family members.

And you don’t think Mohammed with all his epileptic fits while in a cave talking to supposed angels that were telling him what we see in the Koran today is any different?

The suspect's sister, Letisha Larry of Wisconsin, said that, while her brother has no diagnosed mental illness, he started acting strangely recently. She said her brother had been saying Allah was telling him to kill people for the past week.

"He just flipped out. He said the Muslim in some book he always carried around and read said that yeah ... in the book he said he must kill someone, so he killed his family," Letisha Larry said. "He was like just saying little weird little stuff, talking about about he an angel and we demons -- there's demons in the house."

“He was like just saying little weird little stuff, talking about about he an angel and we demons — there’s demons in the house.”

Perhaps he did it because they refused to convert to Islam. Perhaps what he read in the “book” was one of those passages where Allah says to kill the infidels if they refused to convert.

If you live in Madison, this is a sort of man biting dog story. Usually, the crime comes from Chicago to Madison, not the other way around. Madison has changed and not in any good ways in the last twenty years.

“He said the Muslim in some book he always carried around and read said that....”

Um. It’s not just some “book” - it’s the Koran.
