    When someone post something like this on their Facebook page it's probably a sign they are not stable.

    As many as 7 killed, up to 30 hurt in multiple shootings in Hesston, Kansas

    As many as seven people were killed and up to 30 others injured in a series of shootings Thursday in Hesston, Kan., officials said.


    Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton told KAKE-TV "anywhere from four to seven" people were killed, including a gunman, and between 20 to 30 people were shot.

    Walton said in an earlier press conference there were "four to five" diferent crime scenes in the area. including the Excel Industries plant in Hesston where dispatchers earlier said they were responding to a shooting.

    He reported two other shootings nearby and one shooting in the plant parking lot before the shooting inside the Excel building.

    The suspect was an Excel employee, Walton said.

    "This is just a horrible incident," he said. "There's going to be a lot of sad people before this is all over."

    He said he couldn't give an exact number of people killed and injured.

    "We want to get everybody identified. We're working on that," Walton said.

    He added that the FBI and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation had been called in to assist.

    More information is expected at the next briefing by authorities at 9 p.m. local time.

    One of the shootings took place at Excel Industries.

    The company manufactures lawn care products, including riding lawnmowers, according to the company website.

    Martin Espinoza, who works at Excel, was in the plant during the shooting. He heard people yelling to others to get out of the building, then heard popping, then saw the shooter, a co-worker he described as typically pretty calm.

    Espinoza told The Associated Press the shooter pointed a gun at him and pulled the trigger, but the gun was empty. At that point, the shooter got a different gun and Martin took off running.

    "I looked right at him and he looked right at me," Espinoza said.

    Staff at Via Christi St. Francis Hospital in Wichita told KAKE-TV the facility has received six patients from Hesston.

    Two of them are in serious condition, one is in serious condition, and the conditions of the other three are not yet known, the television station reported.

    Excel Industries was awarded the Governor's Exporter of the Year award in 2013 from the Kansas Department of Commerce. The company manufactures Hustler and Big Dog mowing equipment and was founded in Hesston in 1960.

    Hesston is a community of about 3,700 residents about 35 miles north of Wichita.

    The shooting comes less than a week after authorities say a man opened fire at several locations in Kalamazoo, Michigan, leaving six people dead and two severely wounded.

    How sad that this has become so commonplace, that it's not even being covered as breaking news on CNN, MSNBC or FOX right now. :oops:

    It's really sad knowing that your neighbor, co-worker, doctor ... ANYBODY ... can be one of these people.

    Ahem. Suspect identified as......drumroll. Cedric Ford.

    I'd show you a picture but now you know why it isn't covered by the media.

    Or you can blame Trump.

    CBS affiliate KWCH
    A law enforcement source identified the suspected shooter as Cedric Ford, CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton reported. The source said Ford was an employee of Excel Industries and worked as a painter there.

    It is not clear whether or not he was still employed at Excel at the time of the shooting.

    Court records obtained by CBS News confirm Ford had run-ins with the law. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in 2008 in Kansas and faced multiple burglary charges in Florida in 1997 and 2000.

    And what 20 or 30 killed in Chicago over the weekend and nothing in the news? I guess black lives don't matter no matter how much CNN and Obama try to tell you they do.
