Four dead in Weis Market shooting

The sole survivor of a shooting by a Pennsylvania grocery store employee who killed three co-workers and then himself says the shooter locked eyes with her but chose to spare her life for some reason.

The New York Daily News reports Randy Stair, 24, brought two shotguns concealed in a duffel bag to his night shift at Weis Market in Tunkhannock on Wednesday.

One witness managed to escape the rampage and call 911. Stair also killed himself. "I think he had longstanding mental health issues that resulted in this frightful tragedy". As this is an active investigation, the Pennsylvania State Police will take the lead in answering all media questions.

Police said Stair was inside the market on 600 Hunter Highway in Eaton Twp., working since 11 p.m.

The victims are 63-year old Terry Sterling of South Montrose who leaves behind family including two young granddaughters, 25-year old Victoria Brong of Factoryville leaves a 6-year old son and 47-year old Brian Hayes of Springville, a father and active member of his church.

"It is obvious this was pre-planned", DA Mitchell said. It wasn't immediately clear which of the victims held that job.

A statement from Tunkhannock State Police told of the store being closed when the shooter entered the store. A fourth co-worker escaped unharmed and called police. While she was in close proximity to him, Stair did not shoot her.

The bio on a Twitter account the prosecutor said is believed to be Stair's says he "had to die in order to truly live" and that he was "speaking from before and beyond the grave". "Speaking from before and beyond the grave".

Warriors Just Beat The Crap Out Of Everyone, So Now What?
Neither recorded a personal knockout, and each walked away with even greater respect for the other than they had 12 days earlier. KD had 39 points, seven rebounds and five assists, but more importantly the Warriors were a plus-18 over his 40 minutes of play.

In a journal entry written by Stair on May 29 and posted online, he wrote he hopes this shooting inspires more shootings.

It begins with a bitter narrative about his frustration over not getting help or the response he wanted to produce the film.

"The girl in me is clawing to get out", he wrote. Then he locked the main doors, which he had also blocked with a pallet loaded with full cardboard boxes. Stair asked towards the end of the 37-minute video.

Stair's family has expressed sorrow for his actions. Getting medication or undergoing therapy: "That's not me, never would be".
