It was too early for the networks to report on the shooter, his motives and methods. He had not even been identified yet. But that did not stop the networks from trying. CBS had Bob Orr debrief anchor Couric. "What are they telling you about the suspect?" "Not very much…I can tell you this. The crime scene is just awful." ABC went to its in-house criminologist Brad Garrett (no link), a former special agent for the FBI: "The key is probably going to be the initial homicide." NBC's Pete Williams filed a taped package on the basis of tips from his FBI sources. The gunman's motive may or may not have been an argument with his girlfriend. He may have chained the doors of the building shut to prevent his would-be victims from escaping.
