    Always good to have a shotgun around in case you want to solve an argument.

    Please! What kind of reporting is this?? The first paragraph gives the name of the murder victim and suicide victim.

    Last paragraph says the names of the victims have not been released.

    Can you believe this type of reporting? It's uwful! Not professional! Lets strive to do a better job of it.
