I haven’t posted here in quite some time, but yesterday an event occurred which I thought should be shared with other caregivers.
An active shooter situation occurred about a mile from me in public housing for the elderly. Apparently it was some type of assisted living.
The apartment building was partially (apparently) evacuated. Residents were kept together on the street; many were in wheelchairs.
It seems the police of the city as well as surrounding neighborhoods managed to evacuate those people before any harm came to them.
The 70 year old shooter was found dead early this morning. Cause of death is unclear at this point.
My concern and reason for posting is that if any of you have family or friends in assisted living, especially public housing, ask the administration what the gun policy is, and be diligent to ensure that your relatives or friends are not in a situation in which an active shooter can endanger their lives.
Please share this with your friends.
