I was watching the news and there was a story on about a shooting that happened yesterday in Maple wood Missouri. This guy called 911 and told them that his house was on fire. So the sent the firefighters out to put it out. The unbelieve happened the guy started shooting at them and killed a 22 year old firefighter. I just couldn't believe it. The tears was stream down my face as I watched the family talking about the young man. He was 3 years younger then me and had his whole life head of him. After a long shooting the guy caught his house on fire and died. So why did he have to kill someone? I just can't believe why did that man have to died. They don't know why he did what he did. I guess we will never know. I just feel for the family. He didn't die fighting a fire,rescue a family in need he died because someone is F---ed up in the head. This hits home because my grandpa has a chief of fire deparment. He has now passed away. why o why does this happen?

mommyof03 hi this is so sad, and so senseless, here this young man comes out to put out a fire and he is shot, this man that did that must have been insane, that is the only explanation I can figure. a twenty two year old with his whole life ahead of him and he gets killed. Its a tradgedy for sure and probably ' no one will ever know why this happened.
