    Two dead at gun range
    Both suffered gunshot wounds to the head

    Two people were killed by gunfire today at a Casselberry shooting range, according to police. Both were shot in the head.

    Authorities were called to Shoot Straight, a gun range on U.S. Highway 17-92, about 4:20 p.m.

    When paramedics arrived, they found one man dead. They transported a woman to an Altamonte Springs hospital, but she died there, said Casselberry police Lt. Dennis Stewart.

    He did not release the victims' names, saying their relatives had not been contacted. He also offered no information about whether they knew each other.

    Exactly what happened was not clear. Also not clear was who shot whom, how many rounds were fired and what caliber weapons were involved.

    Stewart said both people had gone to the range to target shoot.

    "There were no reported arguments between them before the shooting began," he said.

    Other customers were at the range, he said. Once gunfire broke out, "Everybody went running like crazy," he said.

    An eye-witness told CFN-13 the two victims appeared to be together and took turns firing at targets. When they fired off rounds, he said, they stood very close together.

    Police have asked the store for surveillance tapes.

    Florida Department of Law Enforcement crime scene technicians were on the scene Sunday evening, he said.

    Check back for more details.

    Well there goes the argument that nobody gets murdered at a shooting range.

    god dammit I just used the lack of violence at gun ranges as an argument point today. Pretty sure I actually said "find me one case of murder at a place where there are a lot of armed citizens, like a gun range." :rofl: what the fuck is going on lately?

    Or perhaps these stories are just being reported more often in order to condition the population into accepting more draconian gun control measures. /tinfoil

    CASSELBERRY - Without warning, an Altamonte Springs woman at a gun range turned her weapon on her 20-year-old son Sunday, killing him, then fatally shot herself in the head, police reported.

    Marie Moore, 44, and her son, Mitchell, were at the Shoot Straight range on U.S. Highway 17-92 doing target practice, according to Casselberry police Lt. Dennis Stewart.

    There was no sign of a problem, no argument, he said. Marie Moore simply pointed the weapon at her son and shot him once in the head, witnesses told police.

    She then shot herself once, Stewart said.

    "Nobody knows why. There was no argument or anything before," he said.
    Mitchell Moore, who also lived in Altamonte Springs but at a different address than his mother, was pronounced dead at the scene. Paramedics transported his mother to Florida Hospital-Altamonte, where she died, Stewart said.

    Marie Moore had a history of mental illness, Stewart said, but he had no details.

    The shooting happened about 4:20 p.m., said Casselberry Fire Chief Don Harkins.

    Officials were still at the scene at 10 p.m. So was a crew from the company that operates the range's video surveillance system. Police called them, asking for video of what happened.

    A crew of Florida Department of Law Enforcement crime-scene technicians also was there late Sunday, carrying out bags of evidence.

    Other customers at the range, once they saw what was happening, "went running like crazy," Stewart said.

    Check back for more details.

    Why would people "run like crazy" when the person doing the shooting drops dead after a self-inflicted gunshot?

    And the only reason I'm mentioning this is because we're talking about a shooting range here: gunshots shouldn't make people panic.

    Fucking FAIL.
