Notice the viral violent episodes going on since the Boston bombings? Stay safe, violence begets violence, so stay safe until things calm down. That is of course, you live in a project or black urban, poverty stricken, poorly educated, drug infested area... then yours will continue a bit!
Five people were shot and killed at an apartment complex in a Seattle suburb late on Sunday, including one man shot by police who were initially coming to his aid, local media reported.
Responding to a 9:30 p.m. report of shots fired, police found two wounded men in a parking lot of Pinewood Apartments in the city of Federal Way, Washington, police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock told Seattle television station KOMO.
As the officers approached, one of the injured men reached for a gun, the Federal Way Police Department spokeswoman said, and several officers opened fire, killing him.
The second wounded man died at the scene. Police also discovered three other people who had been shot to death, including one man found in another section of the parking lot, one man found in an apartment and a woman found in a separate apartment, KOMO reported.
Schrock said the men had apparently been in a firefight, but it was not clear what prompted the shootings.

Dutch police say they have arrested a suspect in an online threat to shoot a teacher and students that prompted authorities to close all the high schools in the city of Leiden.
Hague police spokeswoman Yvette Verboon confirmed the arrest Monday but would give no further details of the identity of the suspect.
Verboon says police are "investigating his involvement" in the threat that was discovered Sunday.
Police announced the school closures late Sunday, saying they do not want to take any risks while the person who posted the threat remains unknown.
Mayor Henri Lenferink told Dutch television "it could be a morbid joke" but authorities do not want to risk children's lives.
Shooting rampages are rare in the Netherlands, where gun ownership is tightly controlled.
