The gunman who killed the chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Party Wednesday was a Target employee who hours earlier had quit the discount retailer and scrawled graffiti on its walls.
Timothy Dale Johnson, who was shot and killed by authorities after he entered the Arkansas Democratic Party headquarters in Little Rock and fatally wounded chairman Bill Gwatney, had quit his job at a Conway, Ark., Target that morning, the retailer confirmed.
The story goes on to say:
Target said in a statement that Johnson, 50, did not have a history of problems at the store, where he had worked since November 2006.In case you need help finding the point, until someone pulls that trigger, he or she is a law-abiding citizen.
"He voluntarily quit his job earlier this morning," the company said in a statement. "He had no history of behavioral or performance problems at Target. In the preceding days, he worked his regularly scheduled shifts without incident."
It's a loaded term for half-cocked minds.
