(Newser) – Five people were shot to death, including a suspect who was shot by arriving officers, after gunfire erupted at an apartment complex in a city south of Seattle, police say. Officers responding to an emergency call at the apartments in Federal Way last night found two injured men on the ground in a parking lot. A police spokeswoman says one of the men reached for a gun as police moved in to assist the two, and other officers opened fire.

Another man on the ground and a third man in the parking lot were found dead. In a search of the complex, police found a fourth man dead in one apartment and a slain woman in another unit. The police spokeswoman says police are trying to determine if the woman was accidentally hit by gunfire. There was no immediate word on what set off the shooting.

Geeesh.....It seems that trigger happy gun owners are no longer satisfied to kill just one person at a time.

You cannot stop someone bent on killing others. Just hope you have the firepower when it happens.
