In Lakeland, Florida, a former U.S. Marine sniper carrying multiple guns and wearing full body armor targeted a family apparently at random early Sunday morning, killing four people in their own home. Among the dead was a mother and a 3-month-old baby she was cradling. An 11-year-old girl who was shot seven times survived. The shooter also killed the family’s dog. The gunman, 33-year-old Bryan Riley, was wounded during an intense gun battle with police and arrested. Riley was deployed as a Marine sharpshooter in both Iraq and Afghanistan between 2008 and 2010. Riley’s girlfriend said he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. He had a concealed weapons license and was working as a security contractor.
