As many as five people have been shot at a shopping mall in Omaha, Nebraska; police are searching for a gunman, CNN affiliates report.
That’s all there is right now.
In honor of the election season, though, I’ll make some predictions about the perp, when he’s caught. I bet that (a) he isn’t an illegal immigrant, (b) his name isn’t Mohammed, (c) he isn’t associated in any way with foreign terrorists, and (d) throwing out the entire Bill of Rights (except the Second Amendment) wouldn’t have stopped him.
Now some advice: If you hear gunshots in a public place and they’re nearby, seek cover and concealment. Stay there until uniformed police officers tell you it’s safe to move. If they’re distant, get moving in the opposite direction, provided you can do so safely.
Oh, yes: If someone you don’t know calls you by name, make yourself one with the pavement.
Cover: something that bullets won’t penetrate. Solid walls, sandbags, engine blocks.
Concealment: Bullets will go through them, but they hide you from view. Interior walls, bushes, auto doors.
