Updated 7:56 pm, Saturday, March 23, 2013
QUANTICO, Va. (AP) — A Marine who shot two of his colleagues to death and then killed himself was a tactics instructor at a school that tests Marines who want to become officers, military officials said Saturday.

Sgt. Eusebio Lopez, 25, gunned down 19-year-old Lance Cpl. Sara Castromata and Cpl. Jacob Wooley, 23, on Thursday night inside barracks at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in northern Virginia. Other than to say the three Marines worked together at the school, military officials have not described their relationship or released a motive for the shooting.

Lopez, of Pacifica, Calif., was a teacher whose specialty was machine gunner. He joined the corps in May 2006 and deployed in support of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Don't complain. If word gets out about Pathetica it'll become the new word for loser. Our notoriety will go beyond the Bay Area. We'll be global!

In case you haven't noticed, crime is trending up in our little city by the sea.
The bad guys are figuring out that the risk of getting caught in Pacifica is low.
Who needs police when you have great trails.
Thanks NOBIES.
