There was a mass shooting in Lancaster, South Carolina last night…but don’t expect it to trend or to even make your newsfeed.
10 people were shot at a club, and two have already died from their wounds. The shooter (or shooters) are still at large which you’d “think” would make it a priority, but I’m going to guess this article is the first you’ve read about it.
Why isn’t this shooting a big deal…even to the frothing anti-gun left? Because it was over a personal “beef” at a club and can’t be politicized.
Apparently the mainstream media only cares about pushing mass shooting stories when it involves a white guy with an AR-15. Sounds racist to me, but that’s nothing new for the regressive left.
Even if you don’t care about two guys “beefing” you have to care about the innocent people that got shot just because they were in the way.
Well, the shooter is still at large and I don’t care if it doesn’t fit the Left’s narrative….justice needs to be served.
Below is the original Facebook post made by Greg Suskin of Channel 9 news. I also copied and pasted it so in case FB decides to bury or ban it entirely.
“Just in …full release from Lancaster County..
Ten people shot, two killed…
The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting incident that occurred at Old Skool Sports Bar & Grill, 1384 Old Charlotte Road in the Twin Pines area of Lancaster, about 2:45 this morning. Ten people were shot. Two of them, both adult males, are deceased. Four others were airlifted to medical facilities for treatment. Their conditions are unknown. The remaining four are being treated at a local medical facility for non-critical injuries. A eleventh victim was treated and released at a local medical facility for injuries received in a fall as that victim fled the club. The victims’ identities will not be released at this time.
The club was occupied by a large number of people. Shots were fired inside and outside the club. Investigators do not yet know whether more than one person fired a weapon. Officers of the Lancaster Police Department and the sheriff’s office responded. Many patrons left the scene before and as officers arrived. Search warrants were obtained for the premises and vehicles on the premises. Investigators have interviewed witnesses but need to identify and talk with all those who were present during the incident. Leads have been developed concerning the identity of a shooter, but no one is in custody at this time.
“This was a violent incident of huge magnitude that was witnessed by lots of people,” said Sheriff Barry Faile. “Two people are dead, and many more are seriously injured. The shooter or shooters are out there. We need to talk with everybody who was at the club when the shooting happened, and I encourage those witnesses to contact us immediately so those responsible for these deaths and injuries can be taken into custody.”
