A shooting spree in a Buffalo, New York restaurant has left four people dead and another four wounded with a man hunt launched to find the shooter.

The bloody incident happened very early in the morning in the city of Buffalo after a fight at a large party inside the City Grill bar and restaurant spilled into the street around 2:30 a.m.

The witness reported multiple shots.

"There was some type of incident" inside the restaurant, "and it then spilled outside and that's when the shootings occurred," Buffalo Police Department spokesman Michael DeGeorge told CNN.

"We're trying to sort all of that out," Homicide Chief Dennis Richards was quoted by the Associated Press as saying.

"We're checking to see if something precipitated this from inside."

The police said they are investigating to find the shooters.

Three people were pronounced dead at the scene, while a fourth victim died in hospital, local broadcaster WKBW reported.

Of those injured, one is in very critical condition, it added.

The dead included two men and two women, while all the injured were male.

Sounds as if the South Chicago side of the family came to the festivities.

Yes, I believe the Amish often exhibit very poor impulse control.

The libs keep telling us that violent crime is down. I don’t think so. I wonder how they are monkeying with the statistics.

(Xinhua) — A man celebrating his first wedding anniversary was one of four people killed early Saturday in a shooting outside a restaurant at downtown Buffalo, New York, local media reported.

Four people were injured, and the wife of the man celebrating his wedding anniversary was not among those injured, the Buffalo News reported.

The party, involving more than 100 people, was held to celebrate a wedding that took place last year. The groom was one of those killed, the police said.

All victims had just attended the party in Buffalo’s business district. The shooting occurred at about 2:30 a.m., according to reports.

Authorities have not released the identities of the victims, which included two men, 26 and 30, and two women, 27 and 32.

Authorities reportedly do not know how many shooters were involved. The investigation is ongoing.

I watched a couple of video reports at the Buffalo News website that dealt with this incident. The thing that struck me in both of those reports were the interviews with a couple family members of the victims. In both cases, the interviewee displayed little emotion, and seemed almost detached from the whole situation. This happened less than 24 hours ago, and it certainly was an unnecessary loss of life, yet the impression I came away with is that it was a 'hood thing and that is just the way it is. It is truly a different world on the East Side of Buffalo.

"There was some type of incident" inside the restaurant

I'm pretty sure the police report included that.

I guess banning guns didn’t work?

According to the laws of the State of New York, a magazine with a capacity of more than 10 rounds manufactured after September 14, 1994 cannot be legally possessed by anyone other than a law enforcement officer

(NECN) - An arrest was made late this afternoon in connection with an early morning shooting at a Buffalo, New York restaurant. Police say 25-year-old Keith Johnson is in custody and charged with four counts of second degree murder.

At 2:30 this morning, 8 people were shot as they left the City Grill in downtown Buffalo. It’s reported that the crowd was told to leave the restaurant after an altercation. It was then that one of the men inside began to open fire.

Three of the victims died on the scene, and one later died at the hospital.

Johnson is the only person in custody in connection with shooting. Police say he could likely face additional charges.

One of the victims was a man from Texas who returned to his hometown to celebrate his first wedding anniversary. The group was at the party to celebrate with the couple. The man’s wife was not injured.

Later Saturday, the police arrested a 25-year-old Buffalo man, Keith Johnson, and charged him with four counts of second-degree murder. The shooting occurred after a fight or argument at the City Grill. One person may have been escorted from the restaurant, the police said, and the management decided to close down for the night.

As people streamed outside, someone opened fire from a parking lot across the street, the police said, shattering the glass windows of a subway stop and stores and sending shrieking people running for cover in and outside of the restaurant.

The two women who were killed were identified as Tia McNeil, 25, and a cousin, Tiffany Wilhite, 32, by Ms. McNeil’s mother, Ruby Martin, 45. Both Ms. McNeil and Ms. Wilhite were attending the party. “I don’t know what happened,” Ms. Martin said. “Somebody was just shooting randomly. She got hit and her cousin got hit, and both of them died.”

A wedding anniversary and no one yet knows the motive. What a tragedy for all concerned.

It is because they have been listening to too much of that Amish rap music.

No loss to the DNC

The 4 dead will be voting for years to come.

Excellent analogy. Points out the absurdity of Obummer's position in a nutshell. I am having a hard time seeing a difference in the moral logic of the Hussein's 911 mosque handling and your second hypothetical.
