It looks like he’s shot himself and set his house on fire

Man, I can't help but think there's more to it than a "disgruntled" fireman. Thinking family or female ties. I've been pretty pissed off at coworkers and bosses, never shot any...and then to torch your own home, the thing you've worked hardest for? I don't know, maybe he was fired and losing everything?
Sad, F'd up deal all around.

Edit: just saw DUI and domestic stuff...makes more sense....

Everyone has a breaking point
It’a how we deal with being at that ledge that separates our actions

No psych test can predict that abyss:

Falling down:
Lost career, marriage, house (soon)
Odds from past events are he shot Captain who delivered his final leave paperwork , and or anyone he thought wronged him.

Happens too often
Yep, especially in the fire service where the brotherhood is a way of life. There are some guys who I know personally that can't function outside the fire life. The job of being a firefighter becomes their identity. If he had lost or was loosing that social group mixed with a poor home life it is a real possibility that he saw no other way out.

Every Cop is considering this as a possible motive.
it happens a lot with Cops but less shootings because everyone knows everyone else is armed.
Hope it’s not the reason but has happened a lot in both fields.

Brought this back, out of respect for the fallen one's family. There was a daughter graduating...and the firemen stepped up to support her.
Fuck me, hard to fathom.


Anger should have been directed to the system not the co worker. So sad to see since I have a close friend in the system....

Unfortunately, the anger clouds judgment, as would stress or depression. The guy who pulled the trigger was not in his right mind, as most anyone who commits murder, or suicide. Both are permanent solutions for temporary problems. No one knows what goes through another's head. It is not just first responders or soldiers, everyone has their demons and their limits...

From what I’ve been told it was not the reason. But regardless of the reason, such a tragic event. It’s a different world out there right now from what I grew up in. Prayers for all of the First Responders out there, especially LEO as they have it real tough right now. Just gotta say, if I am able, I’ve got your back in any way I can.
