4 Men Die in Mass Shooting Inside Reading Rowhome

Four men are dead after a shooting inside a Reading, Pennsylvania rowhome Sunday evening, the city’s deputy police chief says.

Deputy Chief Jim Marasco said Monday afternoon described the shooting along South 3rd Street as a targeted act and said the public is not in danger.

The men, all in their early 20s, were shot around 6:45 p.m. on Sunday on the home’s first floor. Three died inside the house while the fourth passed at the hospital, Marasco said. One victim lived at the home.

Marasco said the act is classified as a mass shooting because of the number of victims.

Three of the victims have been identified as 20-year-old Jarlyn Lantigua-Tejadal; 23-year-old Juan Rodriguez; and 20-year-old Josh Santos. The fourth victim’s identity has yet to be released.

Police have not identified a suspect and do not yet have a motive

Fathomable: Mass Shooting Inside Texas Church During Services

Reports right now: More than twenty wounded, nearly 30 dead. “Unfathomable,” says CNN”s Brian Steltler. Yeah, no. At this point Americans can fathom the shit out of this shit. Fathom? Yup. Do something about? Nope. Oh, and Texas passed an open carry law a couple of years back that made it legal to carry weapons into churches. Odds are there were plenty of “good guys with guns” in those pews.

And the trolls are already popping off on Twitter…

Former neighbor of Stephen Poddack — the 64-year-old mass murderer who opened fire at a Las Vegas concert Sunday night — is revealing all on his shocking past in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.

Inside the mind of the Philadelphia area’s worst mass killer

This was originally published on Feb. 26, 2012.

After methodically shooting and killing 13 people in his East Camden neighborhood on Sept. 6, 1949, Howard Unruh fully expected to die in the electric chair or — at best — spend the rest of his life in prison.

What he did not want, he said, was to spend the rest of his days in an asylum.

“… To be declared insane and remain in this building the rest of my life — well, I would rather have the chair,” he is quoted as telling a psychiatrist 17 days after the massacre in a report never before released to the public.

But die he did still a patient at Trenton State Hospital, where he spent the last 60 years of his life as Case No. 47,077, never tried for his

Inside the mind of Hoddle Street killer Julian Knight – The Age

These are words you thought you would never read in a mainstream media publication. Mass killer Julian Knight is right. The decision to ban him from applying for parole is unjust and has left him the victim of political populism.

On Wednesday, August 9, it will be 30 years since Knight took three firearms to Hoddle Street on a quiet Sunday night with a plan to hunt down and kill as many innocent people as he could.
