Gunman Kills Eight in Nursing Home

Detectives believe that a gunman may have killed eight people in a nursing home because his estranged wife was employed there. The 45-year-old man went on a terrifying rampage on a Sunday morning, killing seven nursing home residents and one nurse. He also wounded three other people. The ex-wife of the gunman said that he had violent tendencies. The gunman is charged with eight counts of first-degree murder and a charge of felony assault of a law enforcement officer. Many of the victims were elderly residents at the nursing home. Some had Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The nursing home was closed after the attack so that authorities could gather evidence inside and out. To read more about the nursing home tragedy, please click the link.
