Holy crap.

Listed in critical condition, but other reports noted that he may have passed.

Lots of conflicting reports on the googlez right now, but sad and possible tragic news:

Hopes go out to Paul Dragan and the officer injured.

Holy fucking shit. I used to live upstairs and that Starbucks was my morning stop (don't judge me).

Rumour is the shooter was an ex-employee.

That's shitty. Good luck to Paul and the cop that was hit. Hope they recover.

Wrong. Always.

I've heard that the cop was hit in the chest, but is fine. That leads me to believe that she was wearing a vest. So does that count as another attempted murder?

not that news reports are 100% correct….from OP's link

"The female officer was hit by flying glass as a result of the gunfire. She was not shot and is being treated for minor injuries"

Coincidentally … same here.

When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity.

When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.

Christ, a buddy of mine has two kids that work part time at that Reckless. Both off today though. Scary stuff.

Hoping that Paul is able to pull through.

WTF is wrong with people!?

Ride, don't slide.

Guns….guns guns guns. I hate them. The numbers of people injured/killed in North America as a result of guns is staggering yet the brainwashed PEONS who keep fighting for their gun rights are basically a bunch of lemmings churned out by the inbreeding stupid of the world. Tell them to grab their guns, meet up at the OK Corral and have at 'er with each other. When they're all dead Ill be a happier person.

Personally, I get more and more frustrated with stupid people every day.

I'm ignoring Smedley.

LBS owner shot, suspect flees by bike, cops commandeer bikes to give chase.

Hope he's ok. I was in that Starbucks a bunch of times last week…seems like a strange place for a daylight shooting.

Holy crap! I used to race road with Paul a very long time ago. Decent guy. Let's hope he survives and recovers.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.
