The shootings of five people to death in a mall in Salt Lake City this week may have been another case of Muslim terrorism inside America.
Of course, the news media doesn't want you to think that is what it is.
6 minutes of horror; Shooter aimed to kill as many as he could
In just six minutes, 18-year-old Sulejman Talovic left a tragic path of destruction that forever changed the lives of dozens of people.
"His intent was to shoot as many people as he possibly could," said Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank.
Police released details Tuesday on Talovic's shooting rampage that left five people dead before off-duty Ogden police officer Ken Hammond and four Salt Lake City police officers killed him in "a shootout," Burbank said.
Four other shooting victims are hospitalized.
Talovic was armed with a shotgun, a .38-caliber handgun and "a backpack full of ammunition," Burbank said. Around the man's waist was a bandolier of shotgun shells.
"He had a pump shotgun," said one witness, DeEtta Barta. "He was shooting, and he shot about four shots."
Barta and her friend Ron Mason were celebrating her birthday at the Desert Edge Brewery when they looked out the window and saw Talovic emerging from the parking terrace, firing away.
"It didn't seem real to me," Mason said.
Police said Tuesday they did not know where Talovic got his weapons. Investigators believe the shootings were random.
Some of the biggest questions remained unanswered Tuesday — including why Talovic picked Trolley Square and what prompted the tragedy.
"This is something really unheard of in our community," Burbank said.
Shocking, no? But check out the description of the shooter, listed way, way down the story:
Ajka Omerovic, who said she was Talovic's aunt, visited the home Tuesday afternoon. She told the Deseret Morning News that Talovic had been "a good boy." She said the family are Muslims from Bosnia who had lived in the vicinity of Sarajevo.
One more piece of evidence: we offer Muslims a refuge here in America, and they pay us back with mass killings.
