My brother in law’s brother was shot twice. He’s in stable condition and expected to recover. 
 

The phone for Top Gun has been ringing off the hook for permit classes since it happened. Folks in Collierville went from “It can’t happen here“ to “holy ####!“ real quick.

The press conference was basically one big "Can't get into that. Its an on-going investigation".   So they ain't talking.  At least not yet. Another press briefing will be tomorrow morning. 

Police say it was NOT a terrorist attack. 

A reported 14th victim checked them self into a Collierville hospital, was not shot. It was an anxiety attack. 

UNCONFIRMED: Local news reports the shooter may be an employee  who was fired earlier today.

I've heard the same.  One source said she heard it from an employee.

I was in a connected parking lot this evening, and I'm not sure I've ever seen so many black SUVs in one place before.

So, it's now 20 hours after the incident, and there's still not been the slightest info about the killer.  Usually by now we have his ID, social media postings, comments from friends/family, speculation (or actual info) about his motivation, etc.  But so far there's nothing.  Seems unusual.  Something strange about the case, or the killer?

Sometimes a shooter's name is withheld so they don't get all the immediate attention.  The Collierville PD Chief just gave a press conference and didn't reveal much except that 15 people were shot and 10 were employees.  He was asked several questions about the shooter and motive, but repeated that the investigation was still ongoing and he was not releasing any of that yet.

I've always wondered why they even bother holding a press conference if they aren't willing to say anything yet.
