The police have made an arrest in the Twerk Or Treat frat party and it is a little surprising.
Police arrest suspect in Texas shooting spree that killed 2, injured 12
Authorities in Texas have arrested a suspect in connection with a deadly Saturday night shooting at an off-campus college party that left two people dead and 12 injured.
Brandon Ray Gonzales, 23, of Greenville, was arrested Monday at the auto dealership where he worked, less than 48 hours after the shooting, Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks said.
Here is Mr. Gonzales.
That is going to confuse the media a little bit that a mestizo shot up a party full of black youth. Police are still saying that he was targeting someone and the rest of those shot were just bystanders. Also, the shooting toll has been reduced.
Kevin Berry Jr., 23, of Dallas, and Byron Craven Jr., 23, of Arlington, were killed, authorities said. Of the 12 people injured, six were shot and six were trampled or hurt by glass, authorities said. As of Monday, five remained hospitalized — one in critical condition and four in good condition, Meeks said.
So “only” 8 people shot, which still is a mass shooting by any reasonable definition.
No word yet on why Mr. Gonzales decided to kill whoever he was targeting and why he felt it necessary to shoot a bunch of extra people.
