1 more reason to carry. My friend was shot sitting at Hastings.

I find it hard to believe nobody in Hastings was carrying.

http://www.timesrecordnews.com/news/...ting-incident/

WICHITA FALLS Police have identified the shooter in a Tuesday night rampage that left four people injured and one dead before the gunman took his own life.

Sgt. Joe Snyder, public information officer with the Wichita Falls Police Department, reported early Wednesday that 22-year-old Ross William Muehlberger was pronounced dead at 1:55 a.m. at the United Regional hospital.

At 9:45 p.m., police were investigating shooting incidents at Hastings and Toby's.

The first call came in at 9:25 p.m. from Hastings music and book store at Kemp and Southwest Parkway, where a man reportedly fired a shotgun several times and struck four people - originally reported as five. Their injuries were not thought to be life threatening.

While officers were there, police got a call at Toby's bar on Plaza Parkway a few blocks away about a suspect matching the description at the previous scene. One man was struck by gunfire at the business and was killed, according to police.

A man who was sitting in the front bar of Toby's told a TRN reporter he heard a "pow" and looked over, thinking someone had popped a balloon. He saw instead a man with a gun.

"Boom, boom, boom," he described it.

A man at the door was hit, shot in the chest from about two feet away, the witness said.

The witness ran to the bathroom, hid for about a minute and ran out the back door and over a fence. It started and ended that quickly.

Harmony Langford said she was cleaning a few doors down when she saw people running, and witnesses told her the gunman had been to a business on Southwest Parkway earlier.

Officers saw the suspect leave Toby's and pursued the vehicle into 2000 block of Victory. Police were setting up perimeter when they heard a shot. They went into the house and found the suspect with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital.

Names of the victims were not immediately released

Holy hell.


Hope your friend wasn't the one that didn't make it.

It's reports like this one, and the alarming increase in how much more frequent they are getting, that makes me glad I got my CHL last year. You never know when/where/why something like this is going to happen.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

Do we know the "why" yet? Why'd the guy shoot the people?

He was screaming 'white power'. He shot 3 blacks and my friend is mexican.

The guy at the bar was a door man and I guess just got in the way, because he was white.

After he shot him, he looked around....and then left. I doubt there were any non whites in there last night.

Who knows. He had a record already. He stabbed someone last summer at the lake (among other things), yet he is still out.

It was several things..


Hitlers B day, Columbine, OKC... anything could be a reason. Or the dude was just nuts because of a girl. Either way it seems race motivated. Who knows what sets some idiots off.

I used to live in Wichita Falls and have been to that Hastings many times. Scary shit. Never would have guess that would happen there.

Hope your friend pulls through.

Pistol grip and a jacket, wouldn't be to hard especially at night. People don't pay enough attention and don't know what to look for.

As far as the original poster, glad your friends OK. If you do not have your CHL already, what are you waiting on?

Something fucking stupid, I'm sure.

We live about 3 miles away from Hastings, heard the sirens last night.

We had actually thought about going to Hastings (with our 4 month old) to rent a movie or two. I am SO glad that we didn't.

I sat in the front living room with my glock in hand last night until I heard that he had been found. Never can be too careful.

Had mine a long time... And youre right. In this day and age people don't pay attention. He could walk in there with anything he wanted before people knew what was happening.
