I knew the man that shot his two co-workers today at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.  It is hard to believe that he would be capable of such an ugly act.

The longtime pharmacy tech was well loved by all his co-workers and patients.

On this, the second anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre, this shooting hit me personally. I really wonder what triggered this. According to the news it was rumors of a layoff in June. This goes to show that you never truly know what your fellow neighbor is capable of.

It’s strange and it almost seems cliche when you read the news like this. They always interview the neighbor that says, “He was such a nice man, I can’t believe it.”
