    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -​

    Cleveland Police are investigating a deadly shooting at Hopkins Airport.
    According to sources a man went to the airport late Sunday morning and shot his wife, a TSA Agent, in the employee parking lot.
    After shooting her, at least five times, the man turned the gun on himself.
    Witnesses say the man is dead. His wife was rushed to a local hospital.
    19 Action News has a crew on the scene. Check back later for more details.

    Title made it sound like three people shot. As I read it the female spouse was a TSA employee. There was a third person (a male TSA employee, the driver) who escaped harm. Obvious question if something was going on between the two and the husband found out.

    This reads lika a private tragedy gone horribly public. My heart goes out to the family and friends of this couple. I hope the wife survives.

    The latest version of the article says "two dead":

    According to Sgt. Sammy Morris a 28-year old man followed his wife to the airport late Sunday morning. His 20-year old wife, a TSA Agent, was riding in the car with another TSA Agent when he rammed the back of their car in the employee parking lot.

    Police say the man then got out his car and started shooting. The driver of the car his wife was riding out got out and started running. Although he was shot at, he was never hit.

    After shooting his wife, at least five times, the man turned the gun on himself.

    He died at the airport. His wife was rushed to Metro where she died.

    I rather liked your remark. :D

    The over-sensitive crowd is more than welcome to hang out at that "other place". We created TUG in large part to get away from that bull:poop:.

    What's the over/under on "workplace romance" being the causative factor for the divorce request?

    According to the UK Daily Mail, "The wife and the other TSA employee, a man, were not romantically involved."

    1) According to whom? The lone survivor?

    2) The driver may not have been having a "relationship" with the woman. This does not mean the woman was not "entangled" with another of her ethically and morally deficient blue-shirted cohorts.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the easily offended. Don't pull your punches too much. We've run off a few bedwetters, and this while desperately trying to stay on our best behavior. Just be yourself. We can't coddle the excessively sensitive too much. Eventually they will insist on being offended. If you ask me, some people just aren't happy unless they're throwing a histrionic tantrum over some largely imaginary slight or offense. Better to give them something real to whine about from time to time than to listen to them drivel on and on over some innocuous remark that was never intended to distress them.

    Y'know, I simply don't have any sympathy for 1 Delta 10 Tangos who off their former mate because they imagine or know said mate is unfaithful.

    If you know your mate is unfaithful, you can:

    1. Choose to ignore it,
    2. Confront and demand reform,
    or
    3. Walk away from relationship with said mate.

    If you need fidelity, then I recommend #3.

    Shooting a former mate over suspected or confirmed infidelity makes no sense. It's messy, it's noisy and it's illegal. Poison him/her instead. A steady diet of GMO corn, msg, aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, fluoride and hydrogenated oils should do the trick.

    Just kidding.

    Seriously, when it's over, it's over. Just move on. Yes, infidelity is wrong, but people whose infidelity distresses you deeply aren't worth committing murder or suicide over.

    Which just goes to show that there are far more than 3 options. Thanks RB!

    1. According to the Cleveland PD.

    2. Welcome to 2012. When one relationship is over, it's not at all unusual to start another one before all the formalities of the breakup have been dealt with. That's pretty much been the norm (except perhaps for the Dear Abby / Ann Landers crowd) for decades.

    If you can't live with it, divorce "it" and never look back.

    Exactly. With the sorts of people the TSA keeps on hand, I fully expect to see that the breakup was initiated by hanky-panky in the workplace. After all, they spend their days with their hands in the underwear of unwilling victims. It would not surprise me in the slightest to find that they "practice" on each other in that little "backstage" room at the airport...
