New Mexico Teen Gunman Kills 5 *Updated*

UPDATE at end.

And the “guns in the USA” saga continues. From AP:

A teenage boy fatally shot two adults and three children inside an Albuquerque home, authorities said Sunday. …

Investigators also were seeking to determine who owned several guns that were found at the home, one of which was a semi-automatic military-style rifle.

It probably doesn’t even rate as a “mass shooting” at this point. Just another homicide or five. A daily occurrence. The “politics of guns” at work.

UPDATE

Via Greg Mitchell:

Albuquerque Journal daily newspaper confirms that neighbors say that … the five dead (are) all members of the Griego family (the deceased parents had 10 children in all, according to his bio on the church web site). …

UPDATE #1 … (P)olice confirm, the kid used an AR-15. He has been IDed as Nehemiah Griego. … Local TV station … says friends of the dead man say it is indeed pastor Greg Griego … . He was spiritual counselor to the Albuquerque Fire Department. A local TV site says the three (murdered children) … were all of ‘elementary school age.’
