The person shot passed away last Thursday. Still unclear what really happened and why.

Houston hospital Ben Taub locked down amid reports of shots fired.

Trump syllogism:
Ben Taub sounds muslim like Ben Laden
all shooting caused by terrorist muslims

therefore ==>must be a terrorist muslim hospital

According to Blick it was the son in law/husband which was shot after wife called her father during a apparently violent dispute.

Some uplifting news that good sense managed to prevail in two gun law cases.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Gunmen dressed as doctors storm hospital in Afghanistan.

"Attackers dressed as doctors have stormed the largest military hospital in Kabul, sparking a fierce gun battle, Afghan officials say.

At least three people have been killed but some reports suggest the final toll could be higher.

Afghan commandos who landed on the Sardar Daud hospital roof have now killed all the attackers, the interior ministry says.

The so-called Islamic State (IS) group has claimed the attack.

The Taliban has denied any role in the attack, local media reported.

President Ashraf Ghani said the attack at the 400-bed Sardar Daud hospital "trampled all human values".

"In all religions, a hospital is regarded as an immune site and attacking it is attacking the whole of Afghanistan," he said."

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-39202525

Ah, if only. Medical staff lost their immunity years ago.

30 dead and 50 wounded.

I saw this and was like "WTF..."... wonder if it is mobsters or if in the end it will be religious based.

I really think Swiss shootings deserve their own threads rather than being lumped in the international thread... it's a rare event here and members could even be affected by it.

Well, it happens more often than you think. Thing is, the media makes a grand job at keeping the publicity down to a minimum.

Very strange reporting by Tages-Anzeiger though, no? "Es habe ein Geschrei gegeben"? That's Blick language.

Suspect shot at Orly Airport which is closed at the moment. Evidently already had a run in with police earlier in the day.
