FB rumours are saying a father and daughter are dead but I hope it's just that. A rumour.

Now apparently someone in the gym side have said the father actually shot the daughter. sad

News alert from BBC says three people are dead. What on earth?

NeedACleverNN Tue 19-Jul-16 10:57:58

We've just been told to stay in if we can

One report says the shooter is dead, another is saying he is still at large

I've just seen it on the BBC. It's not far from me. I'm really, really shocked.

Thank you Fairy

Hopefully that's accurate. Dh has just rung home in a panic as work have told him to avoid town

He's ok. He works in a factory about 10 mins walk from the pool so is no where near it. He is just panicking because we live right near town but he panics over things like that.

It's so sad. Crime never used to be that bad here and in the last few years it's gotten terrible.

Looks like the father shooting his daughter is true. The other victim is his wife and he then shot himself

Not 100% but one newspaper article says the police are treating it as a murder/suicide

notquite2point4 Tue 19-Jul-16 11:32:26

We are near there too! Scary stuff sad

NeedACleverNN Tue 19-Jul-16 14:15:52

Not sure where but apparently it's been confirmed to be a man and woman and daughter aged 20.

No little children involved but still quite sad

Love how media are reporting this as a "family tragedy" as though it's not yet another case of a murderous violent abusive man who thinks he owns his family.


NeedACleverNN Tue 19-Jul-16 14:22:04

One newspaper have said it's linked to a domestic dispute

Inkanta Tue 19-Jul-16 14:22:26

Exactly Bertie!

BeyondBeyondBeyondBeyondBeyond Tue 19-Jul-16 14:44:27

Man kills wife and daughter and then himself? Wish I was surprised sad

BeyondBeyondBeyondBeyondBeyond Tue 19-Jul-16 14:45:29

If it wasn't so depressing I'd be saying 'told you so' (I realise I have now said it, but you know what I mean) sad

OP "No little children involved but still quite sad"

I hate it when people say stuff like this, it's really very sad regardless of the age of the victims.

Is it just me, or is there a rise in shootings lately? Where are all the guns coming from?
