Breaking News: Gunman shot dead after killing two women in grocery store

A man fatally shot two women in a northern Indiana grocery store last night. The shooter who police identified as Shawn Walter Bair was shot dead as he turned toward the officer. The police are still investigating the incident in hopes of finding a motive.

We were sent an email earlier today about this letting us know that Shawn Bair was a juggalo. I was going to post a link to his facebook page that provided photos of juggalos related items, but it has already been removed. While most of the media has not yet picked up on that yet we all know they eventually will .

You may be wondering why FLH is even posting this negative story. The answer is simple: we have and always will post all juggalo related news whether it is positive or negative. You can find a news report and press conferences about this shooting below.


A gunman killed an employee and a customer at an Indiana grocery store before being shot dead by police, officials said early Thursday.

The suspect was identified Thursday as Shawn Walter Bair, a resident of Elkhart, Ind., the city where the shooting occurred. He had his gun pointed at a third person when officers arrived at Martin’s Super Market in Elkhart, State Police Sgt. Trent Smith said in a press conference early Thursday.

When he pointed his weapon at the officers, they shot him dead, Smith said.

“We’re pretty confident that Elkhart’s quick response to the scene most definitely saved some lives tonight,” Smith said.

Smith said it was a “huge crime scene” and that shots had been fired from one end of the store to the next. The victims were found 10 to 12 aisles apart.

Police rushed to the scene shortly after 10 p.m. on Wednesday after receiving a 911 call. They heard gunshots when they arrived and rushed to the section of the store from which the shots were fired.

Smith said the shooter was armed with a semiautomatic handgun and a large knife.

Police do not know the relationship between the gunman and the two women he killed. One was an employee and one was a shopper, Smith told the press conference in a video posted online by NBC affiliate WNDU.

The employee was identified by The Elkhart Truth newspaper as 20-year-old Krystle Dikes. The other victim had not been identified as of Thursday morning.

Posts on what appears to be the Facebook page of the alleged shooter paint a portrait of a deeply disturbed young man. The NRA is one of his “likes,” along with controversial band Insane Clown Posse. His posts appear to foretell violence.

“I have now realized that everybody should die no matter race or religion black white everybody will taste the cold metal of my knife and death shall follow me collecting souls of the wicked,” read one.

    FLH should really STOP posting neg stories on Juggalos. Media does us NO favors why should we give them more ammo ?? I mean if this asshole was a Raiders fan no one would bat an eye at it, or if he was into a rap ban other then ICP. Fuck the media.

    No lynx we need to post stories like these. It shows integrity on scottie d’s part. It’s the objectivity that all journalists and reporters should strive for. We cant pretend things like this do not happen…Though I gotta agree him being a juggalo had nothing to do with the crime

    my juggalo homie and gathering road dog [matt chew] was talkin about this shit on facebook while is was still goin on, an ‘active shooter scenario’ or whatever. i guess he lives right around the corner.

    then to have it turn out to be a supposed juggalo… ugh.

    great timing this dickhead had, too. hope the aclu doesnt run for cover.

    Thanks LTB. I couldn’t agree more. This entire situation is shitty, and with AWFUL timing. My condolences to friends and family who were affected by such a senseless crime.

    @Slumerican502 The thing is that reporting neg stories in a way makes it ok for other dip shits to pull this crap. They see it and see the comments and think that could be me on FLH or TJF. I know what they are trying to do but the media is anything but fair and balanced in fact they give two shits one fuck about Juggalos helping people but let one fuck up and BLAM they are front page news for it. Now why is that? Its b/c Noooo one wants to hear about us doing good cleaning parks or helping they want to hear about shit like this. So why are we helping fuel the fire but admitting this guy was a Juggalo and even giving him the time of day on here? Fuck that guy for killing two people then taking the bitch way out. I hope to god he is in hell right now getting pergo sized women pineapples shoved up his ass sideways. Its shit like this make us look bad. The media just wants “Juicy” stories about murder rape and Juggalos being bad to the bone……….

    Yes lynx we all know the mantra of the maintstream media “if it bleeds it leads”. Thing is people like this show us what a human being(not just a juggalo) SHOULDNT be. He isnt making me look bad. Were arent a hive mind.It isnt fueling any fires for them. I really doubt fox news or the guardian search through faygoluvers looking for shit that makes us look bad.

    I cant stress enough how important it is for a news site or station to show both sides of the coin, which scottie has always done in spades in the many years ive been coming here. Its setting an example of true objectivity, which is so god damn rare. Even alt news teams like the young turks show a little bias.

    That being said,yes, fuck this asshole juggalo or not

    [1] – you know so very little of what you claim to be.

    [2] – you arent going to see your name in the news, not even faygoluvers. you are going to be dead, incapacitated, or incarcerated. you wont be famous, we arent even gonna remember your name. you will be remembered as ‘that one fuckhead’; and that, only by your mom.

    and yeah, juggalo culture is clearly not a cut n dried, ‘all good’ or ‘all bad’ sorta thing; therefore, this kind of objectivity speaks. so, to NOT ignore a fairly big and current story is reasonable.
