Calif. Shooting Suspect Found Wearing Body Armor
October 22, 2012
The body of a man who shot five neighbors in a Saturday morning rampage was found in his Inglewood home wearing body armor and clutching a revolver with an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
Desmond John Moses, 55, apparently blamed the neighbors, who were relatives of his landlord, who had served him with an eviction notice. Moses was a security guard and registered owner of a .38-caliber handgun, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Moses opened fire on the family at about 4 a.m. at their West 99th Street home. Two of his victims died from their wounds. His residence was on fire shortly after the shooting.

And if only one neighbor who had firearms training had been armed, the headline would read "Armed Neighbor Defends Himself Against Gunman; Gunman Is Killed".

Reading the full story made me physically sick. I couldn't even imagine. My heart goes out to the family.
