Laguna Woods Mass Shooter Partially Identified – Opinion

With the deadly mass shooting in Buffalo, NY, by a white supremacist and self-described “moderate left authoritarian” still making headlines, another mass shooting occurred in Laguna Woods, CA, on Sunday. At this moment, there is one dead and four other people are critically ill.

Multiple church members attacked the gunman and tied him up with an extension cable. This was a remarkable act of heroism.

This is the latest from The Associated Press.

A man who opened fire during a lunch reception at a Southern California church on Sunday was detained by parishioners, according to a sheriff’s official who called their intervention an act of “exceptional heroism and bravery.”

One person was killed and four others were critically wounded in the afternoon shooting at Geneva Presbyterian Church in the city of Laguna Woods, Orange County Sheriff’s Department officials said.

Partially identified, now the suspect. The suspect is an Asian male in his 60s who was originally from Las Vegas and does not reside in the area, according to other reports.

Regarding a motive, as is typical with mass shootings that don’t fit the predominant narrative, law enforcement is being very tight-lipped. They are not even saying if it’s a hate crime or not. To this day, we still don’t have an official motive for the Waukesha massacre assailant, so I wouldn’t expect to receive one in this case anytime soon. It’s hard to not be cynical in these cases, given how much politics obviously plays a role in how these incidences are covered and what information is released.

It doesn’t really matter what race the shooter is. Every race has evil people doing evil things. The idea that people can feel the need or desire to place aspirations upon large numbers of people in order to achieve the same goals is ludicrous. Unfortunately, it’s become all too common, and because this shooter doesn’t fit the mold, you can expect this story to leave the news cycle rather quickly. I wish that weren’t true, but it is what it is.
