Another school shooting, but this one not widely reported...

Police sources say the coach (a 70 year old) was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

Why is this not being reported widely? Could it be that it does not "fit the narrative"? Good thing the coach ignored the "gun free zone".

2. Yes, but it is another gun in school. And he was acting in the capacity of a coach, not a cop

Lots of whining going on about how having some armed staff members is a BAD thing..

10. Disqualified

Defense shooting doesn't count- he was a reserve police officer so had that special training that allows him to be lightning fast, and super accurate. The practiced 17 hours a day and personally shots 1,873,472 rounds per year so he was prepared for this situation.
He may be 70 years old but his real name is Steve Rodgers

{Do I really need the smilie}

At this time it appears ABC is the only major news source that has reported this...

11. govt conspiracy maybe

va mtn man: Why is this not being reported widely? Could it be that it does not "fit the narrative"?

Your last question shows you're getting warmer.

Why does this shooting not get reported widely?
1. It was an armed robbery, happens dozens of times daily, often with fatality. There was no intent to cause mass murder, likely not even murder at all but robbery.
2. It was not inside the school, but in the parking lot, where an armed school guard would not have had any say in the matter.
3. 200 americans get shot every day, either by others or themselves, wounded or fatal shootings, each & every one can't get widely reported even when they occur on school grounds or are done by students or students are victims.

With 8 shootings per hour causing death or injury, ooo wait, must be a govt conspiracy to hush thing up to suppress gun sales, eh?
