A convert to Islam (another misunderstander) shot and killed five members of his family -- "Allah, the merciful," told him to kill them all. He was riffing on Flip Wilson, I guess. His sister said he was on a jihad.
Of course. Another Muslim convert in prison -- they are building their army there. This one popped too soon.
Alleged Shooter tells police "Allah" told him to kill family WKOW (hat tip Kathy)
CHICAGO (WKOW) -- The Chicago Sun Times reports that suspected shooter James Larry told police "Allah" had told him to kill his family.
He also reportedly told the arresting officers, "Too bad I ran out of bullets."
The Sun Times says that the dead include the pregnant wife of the shooter, 16-year-old Keyshai Fields, a 3-year-old girl named Keleasha Larry and a 7-month old boy named Jihad.
UPDATE (WKOW) --- WLS in Chicago talked with James Larry's sister at a hospital in Oak Lawn Wednesday. Letisha Larry says there was not a fight in Madison. She says James and his wife planned to come visit family in Chicago.
His sister says James Larry converted to Islam while in jail and for the last week he has been quoting the Koran and telling his family it is telling him to kill someone. His sister says "he just snapped."
MADISON (WKOW) --- A Madison neighbor of the suspect in the killing of 5 people in Chicago including three children told WKOW the suspect and one of the victims argued loudly last week and she considered calling police.
The 22-year-old neighbor who asked not to be identified said the argument disturbed her so much she went into the hallway of the apartment building on Flower Lane to make sure there were no cries for help. The Madison suspect's apartment is adjacent to a Dane County Head Start program site and a Madison Community policing office.
