A young couple Derrick Thompson, 19, and Alivia Welch, 18, were shot and killed in their own apartment by their landlord after an argument.  Apparently the argument was over a parking space! The 74-year-old killer then barricaded himself in his home and didn’t come out for 3 hours.  This shooting occurred shortly after police had been called to the home because of the argument and left.  According to reports the man was known to have a short temper, but how short of a fuse do you have to have to commit something like this?  Something else must have contributed to this unfortunate tragedy, maybe a mental problem of some sort.  This gun control controversy is alive and well right leading into a new year.
