Atlanta Office Shooting

Nine people have been killed in a shooting at an office building in Atlanta, and three others killed in a home in a nearby suburb. Mayor Bill Campbell says the alleged gunman — 44-year-old Mark Barton of Morrow, Georgia — was a day trader who had done business with a brokerage in the building. We hear some of the Mayor's comments, and Linda speaks with Joshua Levs of member station WABE about the incident.
