Today's Mass Murders

From April 22, 2013 USA Today:
Five people were killed in a shooting late Sunday at an apartment complex in Federal Way, Wash., about 20 miles south of Seattle, the Associated Press reported Monday, citing local police.

Police officers arriving on the scene shot a suspect, who has died.

According to the AP, the officers responded to an emergency call around 9:30 p.m. PT Sunday where they found two injured men on the ground in the parking lot of the apartment complex.
From April 22, 2013 BBC:
A gunman has killed six people - including a 14-year-old girl - in the western Russian city of Belgorod, local officials say.

The man shot dead three people inside a hunting shop and two passers-by. Another woman later died in hospital.

The attacker - said to be an ex-convict - then fled in a car, and the abandoned vehicle, a BMW, was found
later.

The motive is believed to be robbery. Unconfirmed reports say a suspect has been arrested.
Russia, fortunately, has very strict gun control laws.
