Driving home tonight I heard on VPR that a series of shootings had occurred in Essex, VT. Apparently the details are still sketchy, but it appears that 2 people have been killed and at least 3 people were injured.
I think the gun man was one of the injured people. Apparently he shot himself toward the end of the ordeal.

As far as some comments on this go . . . it seems that tragedies in small towns and small states hit a little closer to home. I’m still new to Vermont, so it’s hard to gauge how people will react to this.
I suppose at this point we can only pray that the victims will heal and that this troubled man will have a chance to receive the Gospel and be healed spiritually.
