Kind of strange that this isn’t making the same sort of headlines as other shootings in the US. I saw an article on the BBC yesterday, but no Live coverage.

It was on BBC radio, TV and the website.
The event was resolved there and then because the shooter shot herself, so no in person on the loose angle.

Seems to be like a temp worker went postal. maybe bullying or disrespecting?

A quick Google shows that every news source is covering it.

Time to arm all employees, to prevent this kind of tragedy happening again.

Tactical assault weapons could be sensibly displayed (with safety off) in attractive deaths-head bins next to fire extinguishers and at water coolers. "Be safe - reach and fire, think later". The resulting death tolls will only be a good thing, due to uplift in sales for weapons systems and resulting employment opportunities in bible belt gunmaker communities. "A sold weapon is as good as God's blessing" - the Gospel according to St Colt, 2:17 - 'Thy Weapons Are Thy Right and Shall be Placed before Trivia such as Life".

It doesn’t matter in the eyes of the media because the attacker isn’t a Muslim. If the attacker is a Muslim, the attack will get news coverage even if it’s a minor incident like in Amsterdam a few weeks ago.
