I've been to this business for auto repairs. Terribly tragic.

FYI. Beware of the San Margarita market next door. It’s been long rumored that it’s a drug front money laundering operation.

OMG! I know this place as we have sent somethign to them to do. They do good work. The articles says she was displeased with somethign doe last year and they went through mediation for it. I know their work is only guaranteed for X amount of time could be that she wasn’t pleased that it went back out on her after that time?
Shooting the clerk shows how whacked she was. Channel 6 reported that she fired at the mechanics as well, but missed.

Supposedly she had filed suit against the shop.

That would not surprise me. I was at the auto shop one evening to get some things from my car before they worked on it. There were some odd characters next door at the market.

When I first saw the live shots of the scene, I was thinking that the market might have been the focal point, for just those reasons. That wouldn’t have surprised me.

Times are extremely tough...People are being financially gang raped by government, as the prices of everything goes through the roof.
For the private sector, every goes up except wages and income...
The stress noose tightens.
Walking time bombs.

I’m afraid it’ll get worse and these types of incidents will rise.
