Live video from inside the church....
They took it down.
Matthew J. Murray? What kind of name is that for a Muslim?
Police in Arvada said they believed the shootings -- which occurred 12 hours and about 65 miles apart -- were probably linked, though they had nothing conclusive to back up the theory.
"Given the circumstances, I think it is a good possibility that the two are linked," Arvada Deputy Police Chief Gary Creagor told The Associated Press early Monday. "But we have to prove that they are."
Does this mean that they still aren't certain that it was the same shooter at both locations? Or just that they are unwilling to confirm that this man targeted people at two religious institutions?
At this stage how can the conclusion be reached that this was a random act? The shooter was reported to be wearing body armor and a tactical helmet and that several devices, either bombs or smoke generators were placed on the campus.
this was the GoldenCompass Killer?
THIS is what the MSM should be focusing on if they had a single ounce, one cintilla of true jounalism left in their collective system. This is the news, along with he attack itself, that should be grabbing healines:
"ARMED HEROINE PREVENTS SLAUGHTER AT CHURCH BY SHOOTING THE ATTACKER DEAD"
Thank God that pastor there LISTENED to the inspiration he felt regarding protecting his flock, and then ACTED on it that morning by getting the additional security in place, which included, among other things as I understand it, getting his people to safe places within the church, each group protected by an armed security guard, and getting them out of the line of fire...as well as having this particular security guard near him who was able (and WILLING) to react to the attack by taking the fight directly to the perp and taking him down.
Without such actions and plan, their would have been a much, much more horrific body count I am afraid...which just punctuates the point of arming the people so they can stop such attacks as they develop.
24-year-old Matthew J. Murray of Englewood, who was shot and killed by a member of the church's armed security staff.
I don't know many churches that have armed security, except maybe the Vatican, and some offshoot cults.
I tend to believe the Arvida police rather than the Colorado Springs cops. (Arvida says probably linked, CS says random).
marked to read later
Colorado Springs Police identified the gunman as 24-year-old Matthew J. Murray of Englewood, who was shot and killed by a member of the church's armed security staff.
He said the security guard was a volunteer but he did not release her name.
Volunteer armed security guard?
Armed citizen PING!
