    WTF is in the water in Virginia? This shooting, Virginia Tech, the snipers Malvo and Muhammad killed many in Virginia. Jeebus. I just hope no one was seriously injured.

    Ever try I-95 through Virginia? 90% of the world's hate is on that miserable stretch of asphalt during a holiday.

    VA is hood. the whole state is plagued with crazy people. even though those events have nothing to do with each other I think its because they're all tripping off of acetylsalicylic acid.

    Don't you know mentioning his race would be stereotyping all people of the same race? That's much more important than catching a killer. You just aren't PC, man.



    Yeah, Apple always puts stores in really bad neighborhoods.

    I was in that store Wed. night and I live in the area. The store is located in a little open mall called Market Common with high end stores like Crate & Barrel, Williams Sonoma, and Pottery Barn. It's an extremely safe area full of well to do yuppies. That's why there's an Apple store there. The assailant was a thin black guy who was probably trying to rob the place soon after the doors opened. The restrooms are at the back of the store through the same door that goes to the stockroom. It used to be that the restroom door was on the left at the back of the store with a separate stockroom door on the right but they changed it so there's now only one common door. They might want to rethink that arrangement.



    Hope the shooting victim is OK.

    Let's see: vigilant gun owner =meth addict up for 4 days? What...are you smoking crack??

    Hey, I live in Northern Virginia and the violent crime here is committed by people from DC. Go pick on them!

    I have been there recently and it's the Apple Store I've visited most during my stays in the US...curfew where? This is normally a safe area with lots of nice houses around, not to mention the Mall itself, crowded with upper-middle class people and fancy stores...you may drop your crack pipe now.

    Hope PC didn't try to settle things with Mac Once And For All. Maybe he froze up before he could finish the job.

    I've seen crazy customers get unbelievably irate in my old Apple Store. One guy started yelling, slamming things around, and tried to force himself to the back room just because his computer wouldn't get fixed quickly enough. I'm actually not horribly surprised that something like this happened \

    watch the video. the comment was suppose to be sarcastic. the area is 5 minutes from DC and the condos there cost a minimum of $500k

    What robbery? The dude was probably an Apple-hater. Or possibly sent by Microsoft to scare people from going into Apple retail stores. See how fast the news jumped on it. There are shootings all the time.

    As a fellow Apple employee, I really hope that the woman who was shot will be ok. It never ceases to amaze me how shallow some of the people who have commented here are!
