Tragedy in a Comic Book Store

This is the first time I'm blogging something not because I want to but because I feel the need to disseminate the information. It is not light-hearted the way my entries usually are.

Roselle is a suburb of Chicago, about ten miles from where I live. In Roselle there is a comic book store I have never been in, I have never driven past it, and in fact I had never even heard of it before yesterday.

But, suddenly on Saturday, this comic book store was in the lead story on every local news show and was even splashed across the front page of the Chicago Sun-Times.

It seems that an armed gunman entered this comic book store on Lake Street in Roselle, Illinois, USA. He confronted the owner, who had a gun of his own. Shots were fired and both men were hit. To read the reports offered by local news outlets, please click here and here and here and here.

Whether you're reading this ten miles from Roselle or in a far-away corner of the globe, the story is frightening.
