How terrible.    Are guns so easy to obtain in the States?    Dreadful thing to happen in any circumstances.

Can anyone remember when a bailiff, his assistant and a council officer were shot dead live on TV - possibly somewhere in the Midlands about 20 years ago?

There are conflicting reports coming in now that the assailant in this awful case has shot himself.
