There is no word on the motive. Some reports are coming in the shooter was a city employee.
The gunman entered the building and proceeded up the floors, shooting people as he went. Police secured as many victims as possible before confronting the assailant, at which point he was shot and killed.
Of course, it’s already being politicized. Here’s Linda Sarsour’s hot take.
How many more shootings have to happen? How many more dead bodies and families devastated till we say enough is enough and actually take action once and for all? This is horrific. https://t.co/z5Vb4Zd6kh
