    http://www.kare11.com/news/artiILLAGE OF MANCHESTER, Ill - Five people are dead and one injured in a shooting in Manchester, Illinois, according to WLDS radio.

    WLDS told NewsChannel 5 a suspect is in custody.

    The Scott County Sheriff's Department said there were multiple people shot, including a child who was taken to a Springfield, Illinois hospital.

    The pastor of Manchester Baptist Church told NewsChannel 5 that the murders happened inside a public housing complex on East Street Wednesday morning.

    Multiple schools are on lockdown. The Jacksonville School District 117 secretary to Superintendent Steve Ptacek said the school is closed in response to a recent shootout with a suspect on Woodson Winchester Road. WLDS reports North Greene and Winchester schools are closed.

    Manchester is about 85 miles north of St. Louis.cle/1022999/18/5-dead-after-shooting-in-southern-Illinois

    At work so i have not heard much about this... Sounds like reports are just coming in. Multiple schools on lock down, hopefully who ever did this will get caught soon.

    And the sad thing is, that hundreds of people died in car accidents all over the country and that is looked upon as just a byproduct of a tool that is considered "useful" by people opposed to the best form of personal defense.

    Well if there is any state to ban stuff that can hurt you Illinois would be the state to do it. There gun control is working sooooo well

    <sarcasm mode on> No, they obviously need more gun control as the current stuff isn't working. They just need to keep adding to it until it works </sarcasm mode off> Yep, ridiculous.

    According to the 65 year old victim's son-in-law, it was a custody battle between the shooter and one of the 65 year old's daughters that was the motive. This was not a random mass shooting. It was a domestic dispute that went too far.

    And the anti's will point to that and say that is a prime example which proves that you are 10,000 times more likely to be killed with a gun if a gun is in the house. (I know it is wrong but they are stating that).

    Innocent people being shot is always a tragedy regardless of where they live. There's irony in so many Chicago Obama (or "0" as I like to refer to him) supporters falling victim to gang violence when their "messiah" won't support prosecuting gangs or gun violence. Maybe the Libs perverted reasoning is more crime, more justification for gun control laws and after all Chicago is just a loosing cause anyway - cynical I know.Obama Pushes for Gun Control, Refuses to Prosecute Gang Gun Crime in Chicago | FrontPage Magazine
