I think if it is someone you know , you would not have to wait for the obits in the paper to find out.

Interesting. EVERY poster who complains about people asking questions THEMSELVES decided to open this thread titled "Tragic Incident."

A bit hypocritical, perhaps?

Truth to what you say. Firing a gun at a public place even to end your life is questionable.

Over the years, this has been all too common around here. I am reminded of those nature shows where hyenas circle.

(Yeah. Yeah. I know. Delete MY post. Oh, the irony of that. But, hey, whatever.)

Sincerely,
Boomer, who just felt like finally saying something
I agree with you 100% Boomer.

I think that the OP like many of us read the report of the suicide and like many of us paused and wondered and reflected and felt sad for a situation that none of us would ever want to face.

Perhaps the OP felt like reaching out to others and so he posted.

We ARE all in this life together.

Guy didn't want to live anymore... blew his brains out...his reasons are personal and not our business. End of discussion.

Post Concern for Others

Thank you to those who posted their sympathy and concern for the victim and his family. I believe showing concern for others is compassionate - not intrusive.

I agree there. But not much will probably be known unless the family decides to give out that information.

Not our business but read the statistics. You may make it yours
Or it may easily become yours without warning.
Veterans,first responders and seniors are in the top percentiles.
This issue has to come out of the closest
