Woman Arrested In Connection To NY Firefighter Shooting!

| Filed under: R.I.P.50 CentSad SadNew York


We're still in complete shock over what happened on Christmas Eve in Rochester, NY when 62-year-old William Spangler ambushed and killed two firefighters.

While William shot and killed himself, 24-year-old Dawn Nguyen is still very much alive and has been arrested in connection to the Christmas tragedy after she falsified business records believed to be linked to the purchase of the AR-15 rifle and 12-gauge shotgun William used during the attack.

Police investigator James Newell said:

"[She was] turned over to ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) agents to be processed at the federal level, and arraigned by a federal magistrate this afternoon"

Investigators are still unsure of Dawn's motive in the ambush.

Dawn's lawyer, Dave Palmiere, claims his client purchased weapons legally, but they were mysteriously stolen.

One gun was actually a .223 Bushmaster, the exact model Adam Lanza used to kill 26 people in Newtown, Connecticut at the beginning of this month.

We have yet to make sense of this string of tragedies.

Now every Christmas we will forever be reminded of maniacal William and the fire that killed two American heroes.

    Just WTF is Perez up to with all these shooting stories ??? I'm thinking he's trying boost his readership numbers.
    You are NOT CNN , Fox much less a gifted writer. Your opinions are even far worse than a 5yo. Stay out of shit like this and get back to gossip. !!!!!!!!!!

    Re: ellyrae – hmmm… "may she rot in hell." I'm just curious - is this some kind of blblical "Christian" thing that you're spewing here? Sounds like it. Anyone who disagrees or lives a way different from Christians in the U.S. is setting themselves up to be abused and maligned by right wing nuts who have a very narrow viewpoint!

    You're not a journalist. You're not a writer. You do nothing original; you copy and paste everything from other sites, then add your idiotic homo comments. If your visitors want credible, serious news items, they're not going to come your hack gossip site to get them. Normal, well-adjusted, balanced people recognize their limitations and adjust. But not you, Perez. You're too self-absorbed and just too fucking stupid to see that you make an ass out of yourself every single day. You need serious therapy and serious meds, loser.

    To bad it wasn't you instead of the first responders. It would have been a service to the nation.
