Appears it may be a botched murder suicide.
WESTFORD - Authorities investigating a Saturday night double-shooting declined to give details about the incident yesterday but assured residents of this pastoral community that the crime in a wooded neighborhood near the high school was not random.
“We don’t believe there’s an armed suspect at large,’’ said Jessica Venezia, a spokeswoman for Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone. “There’s no reason to think that any students are in possible danger at this time.’’

There was an article in the Globe this morning - didn't sound like the news weasels had too many details. One nice thing about living out in this area is that the news weasels are too busy closer in towards Boston to get out here and pick at every little thing that goes on, and the local police I think tend to not release too much info to them either, especially if it's something that might not sound too good for the town.

Didn't work like it does in the movies did it?
Sometimes it is so satisfying how STUPID people are.A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.

I'll never understand murder of a spouse. Divorce may suck, but it sure beats life in prison or killing yourself.
