retail news in context, analysis with attitude

CNN reports that there has been an other mass shooting - this one at a Long Island, New York, Stop & Shop, where three people were shot and one killed.

According to the story, "The shooting happened in a manager's office on an upper level of a Stop & Shop grocery in the community of West Hempstead, New York. A couple hundred people were inside the store, police said."  The person killed reportedly was the store manager.

A suspect - who worked at the store collecting shopping carts - has been arrested by local police.

KC's View:

The sad thing is that I had to look up how many people have to be involved in such an incident to make it a "mass shooting."

The answer is "three."

Which means we can add this to the list, which reflects its own kind of epidemic.
