Shooting Spree Here in My Own Backyard…Suspect Still At Large

Well…not literally in my backyard but in my surrounding neighborhood.

A truck driver for a quarry near Cupertino, California went on a shooting rampage early this morning, killing three people and wounding at least seven others. He has lead police on a manhunt across the Silicon Valley all day and after more than 14 hours, he’s still at large…somewhere in the neighborhood!

We’ve all got our doors and windows locked and are hoping they find him soon. The kids school was on lockdown all day. Crazy!

To imagine that this is all happening within a 2 mile radius of my house. Beyond belief!

From CBS News:

Authorities went door to door with guns drawn Wednesday in search of the disgruntled employee of a California limestone quarry who they say opened fire there, killing three and wounding six, before possibly wounding another woman in an attempted carjacking. Police said originally two people had been killed in the shooting. A third victim died of injuries at the hospital, according to police.

Santa Clara County Sheiff’s spokesman Jose Cardoza said the shooting at Lehigh Hanson Permanente Cement Plant occurred around 4 a.m. Wednesday. The gunman has been identified as 45-year-old Shareef Allman.

Allman showed up for an early morning meeting, then left briefly before returning and allegedly opening fire on his fellow employees in the meeting, Santa Clara County sheriff’s Lt. Rick Sung said.

    A couple of days ago there was a lock down in the little town next to mine(about 15 miles). He killed his grandparents and was going to kill his Mom next. She worked in a little shop right down the road. We all had our doors locked and were staying low.They caught him walking down the street with a gun.He is 30 years old…….don’t know the rest of the story.
    Ya never know.

    This is so crazy- Every year these wild killing spree’s start up around this time-Can’t understand why people have to get (revenge)? or whatever they are thinking–on others,why do they have to involve innocent people?

    yes i texted a son who works in the quarry business. Curious if it was one of their sub’s. No it wasn’t but it was an awful shooting.
    I feel awful when this type of murder happens. We all have a belief when going to work that we will not die at our jobs that day. Of course there are exceptions to that but overall. Just ticks me off that familys are destryed over another persons tewmper tantrum.

  5. D.R.T. Correct ending to the Cupertino shooting. CA, so cue the “they should have talked him out” or “used less than lethal” comments.

    (Disgruntled Dr. Conrad Murray Fan)…
    Seriously though, that’s no Joke. I agree with *Sandy*— I always say it makes me so Angry when these kinds of people just grab a Gun and take to the Streets and Open-Fire on anybody or everybody to get their Frustrations out or as a means to deal with a personal Problem— Like those who just have to first “take a few out” before killing themSELVES. All it takes is being in the wrong place at the wrong time. My God, it’s Scary.
