When Is a Mass Shooting Not a Mass Shooting?

 

Chicago shooting: 13 people were shot at a house party honoring a man killed earlier this yearCNN.com

This is a wild story . . .

First of all, the shootings took place at a gathering honoring a man slain earlier this year.

According to police, shots were fired within the residence, which caused everyone to start to leave.

As partygoers fled the home, police believe one of them opened fire outside.

Then a vehicle was driving down the street and one of the people who left the residence, not the same person who was randomly firing at people leaving the house, fired on the vehicle.

So we had one person firing inside the house, one person firing at people leaving the house, and a third person firing at a vehicle driving down the street, for a grand total of 13 victims.

Because no one involved can be labelled a white supremacist, CNN refrains from calling this a “mass shooting” and the story is of local interest only.
