A driver plowed into pedestrians on Venice's famed boardwalk Saturday evening, striking at least a dozen people and killing one, authorities said.

Another person was critically injured, two more suffered serious injuries and the rest sustained minor injuries, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said. He said a total of 10 people accepted transportation to hospitals.

Los Angeles police said late Saturday that the driver of what witnesses described as a dark-colored sedan fled the scene.

Late Saturday, authorities said a person of interest was being questioned in connection with the incident. (Fox News reports he is a former resident of Colorado.)

That person's name and gender were not released. Humphrey said his agency had been told only that the Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery-Homicide division was on the scene and that it remained "a very active investigation."

Witnesses said they believed the driver was traveling about 60 mph

An attempted mass murder. No different than the school or theater killings other than the means. The twisted mind and carnage is the same.

I hope they find who did it and punish them to the full extent of the law.

And that's relevant how?

 

Certainly an odd perspective to try and put on it.

The given examples were "mass" killings, or in this case an attempt at one. That is how they are classified vs. "spree" or "serial" killings. Look it up.

Certainly an odd perspective to try and put on it.

Not if you've researched multiple homicides past reading/watching the news. The devices used to accomplish a mass killing can vary, but the goal of the perps psychopathology is the same.
