Marital strife might have led a man to fatally shoot his wife and her friend before killing himself, authorities said.
Vladimir Von Fisher, 42, of Monessen opened fire on his estranged wife Maedee Von Fisher, 39, and Nicholas Mascetta, 44, both of Monessen, about 9 p.m. outside the Westgate Manor apartment complex on Donner Avenue, Monessen police Chief Mark Gibson said.
Witnesses told police that Mascetta, who used a wheelchair, was sitting with Maedee Von Fisher under the pavilion when Vladimir Von Fisher walked down a hillside with his girlfriend, pulled a handgun and began shooting, Gibson said.
Guess what they didn't report anything about - the gun. They didn't say whether the shooter owned the gun legally or if he'd had a license to carry it concealed. This is what often happens when murder and suicide are the attention-getters. No one is counting anything other than the bodies.
Then John Lott comes along and says in a certain area or a certain state or over a certain period of time, only .000007% of concealed carry permits were revoked. And the pro-gun crowd all jump up and cheer.
