Mass Shooting Alert: Super Efficiency Edition!

I thought I was keeping up on the mass shootings but apparently not. Wow.

This one was a fun story, no one died so it is OK to laugh a little.

Single bullet fired at crowded Texas flea market sends 7 people to the hospital, police say

A crowded flea market turned into panic Sunday night in Texas after police said a man accidentally fired a single shot, which sent seven people to the hospital.

Jose Manuel Guerrero-Reyes, 25, was charged with aggravated assault causing bodily injury. Police said all the victims are expected to survive.

“At one point he retrieves it [the pistol], has his finger on the trigger and it goes off, shooting the person in front of him,” Harris County Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliand told the Washington Post.

The bullet struck a 30-year-old man in the thigh around 7 p.m. before ricocheting off the concrete dance floor and fragmenting, striking six adults who suffered minor injuries. Those injured included four men between the ages of 26 and 33 and two women were ages 26 and 43, the paper said.

Usually one shot, one hit is the goal but for Jose Manuel Guerrero-Reyes, apparently drunk and carrying a loaded pistol in his pocket, he only expended one round but wounded 7 people.

This isn't really a mass shooting since it was apparently accidental but it still makes the list. I assume Jose Manuel Guerrero-Reyes is not a white guy, just for the record.
