Atlanta Security Guard Kills One Wounds Two

CNN reports

Police arrested a 22-year-old security guard and charged him Friday with murder and aggravated assault in a triple shooting in a garage in Atlanta's Midtown neighborhood.

Nkosi Thandiwe surrendered to police Friday afternoon and was charged with one count of murder and two counts of aggravated assault related to the shooting death of a woman and the wounding of two other people earlier in the day, said Carlos Campos, a spokesman for the Atlanta Police Department.

The first shooting occurred on the third floor of the parking deck, where Thandiwe was waiting for the woman he killed, Campos said. The suspect was inside the victim's Toyota Prius when he shot the woman, who also worked in the Proscenium Building, Campos said.
There's no doubt this guy was a legitimate gun owner. He probably had all the training and mental-health screening as any other gun owner in Georgia, maybe more. Is it so difficult to agree that the screening and training required is inadequate?
