It’s been a while since we published one of these. To paraphrase Yoda, worth the wait it’s been (in a tragic horrible sort of way). “A 5-year-old girl has been killed and a woman wounded in Grants Pass after an assault rifle went off and shot them in an upstairs room of an apartment, police said.” I’m thinking a Christine remake only featuring a rifle. In fact, “A 30-year-old transient [ Jon Andrew Meyer, Jr, above] who was visiting the apartment was arraigned Friday on charges of manslaughter, assault and illegal possession of a machine gun, Chief Deputy District Attorney Lisa Turner said. The manslaughter charge alleges the killing was reckless, not intentional.” More than that . . .
say she will not. “Turner said she could not divulge the make and model of the rifle, who owned it, or whether it was manufactured as a fully automatic weapon or modified later.” Whoa! Full auto? Evil²! And here how down it went:
Police said Meyer was in a downstairs room of the apartment when the rifle went off there, and the girl and the woman were upstairs in the same apartment. The woman was not related to the girl, whose mother was also in the apartment, but not shot, Turner said.
