Gunman Shoots at Austin Buildings, Including Police HQ

November 28, 2014  | 

A gunman opened fire at four different buildings, including APD headquarters, the Mexican Consulate and the Federal Courthouse early Friday morning. An officer about to get off duty saw the suspect near APD HQ and opened fire on the suspect who fell to the ground.

The suspect is dead, however, it’s not clear yet if he took his own life or was killed by the officer’s bullet. An autopsy has been ordered to determine which bullet(s) killed the suspect, KXAN TV reports.

Well, if this crazy is white we will hear for weeks about his reasons why he was a racist (not a cop hater, thats ok) against the Mexicans. If he is a Mexican or any minority we will never hear another word since all "undocumented citizens" are peaceful, law abiding (well not immigration law).

What this article doesn't say, is the damn near impossible shot the cop made. From over 300 feet away, with one hand holding the reigns of two different horses, this man deployed one shot... and hit his target. Most of us couldn't hit the broad side of a barn under similar circumstances.
