Don’t worry this one had a happier ending.
This story didn’t get very much coverage at the time it happened because the shooting was stopped quickly and effectively before it could turn into a mass shooting.
On April 22, 2012, convicted felon Kiarron Parker crashed his car into the parking lot of an Aurora, Colorado church and shot and killed one of the members of the congregation (who came to check on him) before being shot and killed himself by a member carrying concealed (an off duty police officer). Parker had been convicted for assaulting two police officers, breaking and entering and drug abuse.
It is believed Parker, who was recently released from jail, meant to kill as many people as possible.
