Man dressed as Freddy Krueger shoots five at Halloween party

Man dressed as Freddy Krueger shoots five at Halloween party:

A Halloween party turned violent overnight with shots fired and five people injured and sent to the hospital.

According to police, around 5 a.m. early Sunday morning at a house on the 2900 block of Aspen Meadow, several males showed up to a Halloween party and started causing trouble.

Police say that one of the males, dressed as Freddy Krueger, pulled a gun from his costume and opened fire on the crowd.

Officials said that three of the victims were taken to University Hospital.

Police noted that one of the injured women tried to drive to the hospital but wrecked her car along the way.

Police are still searching for the suspects.

Stories like this get me a little annoyed.. 
Local news has incidents of murders and shootings each night. But when someone is dressed as Freddy during the Halloween season, it gets linked on Drudge and the entire world knows about it within seconds..

Not to degrade the people who were hurt.. but the only reason why you are reading this and I am linking this is because the ‘news’ biz picked up the story .. it is enticing to read that someone dressed as Freddy did this.. and it also gives excuses for local news affiliates to find stock images of Robert Englund dressed as Fred to use in their articles.

Pathetic and sad…
