Did Fight Over Gifts Lead To Baby-Shower Shooting?
I certainly hope not. But, you do have to wonder what in the world would cause a shooting at a baby shower of all places. It’s such an unlikely event to carry a gun, much less get shot. According to reports, West Hartford police officers were dispatched to a reception hall at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday after receiving reports of shots being fired. Investigators said a fight at the event escalated into a shooting incident, resulting in four gunshot victims.
Did you notice the time? The shooting happened at 11:30 pm. What kind of baby shower is still going on at that time of night? Maybe that was the first indication that something was going awry. Just maybe, after a long night of cake and punch, they finally got around to opening the baby gifts. One person may have made some off-color comments about another person’s gift, and those became “fighting words!” Who knows, perhaps somebody didn’t chip in their share for the group baby gift but tried to steal all the glory as if she had purchased the whole thing herself, and things went downhill from there. Or it just might have been that some lady took the very last baby shower favor right when another person was reaching for it. One thing probably led to another, and there you go–a fight and shooting ensued. It’s all speculation, but do you think they might have been fighting over an adorable baby gift from Corner Stork Baby Gifts?
