MESA, Ariz. — Two people were killed and six others — two of them children — were wounded in a shooting at a high school graduation party, police said Sunday.

A 37-year-old man was taken into custody after a four-hour standoff with police at a house in Mesa, east of Phoenix, Mesa Police Sgt. Ed Wessing said.

Preliminary information indicated that the suspect was an invited guest at the party who got into a physical fight with his ex-wife late Saturday, Wessing said.

The suspect allegedly went to his vehicle, got a gun, returned to the party and opened fire, killing his 38-year-old ex-wife and a 32-year-old man, Wessing said.

He said six others had minor injuries. They included a 10-year-old boy who was grazed on the head and an 8-year-old boy injured by bullet fragments. More on whotv.com

“It’s hard to smile when you see what some fiendish monsters will resort to when let on the loose.” says a dentist in ocala fl. The availability of guns doesn’t help much either.
