    One dead, the other in serious condition, no indication yet how it happened, except it doesn't appear to be self-inflicted, a case of murder.

    Poor lesbians get no responses on a gay men's site.

    Pity response here.

    A story worth following, because if this is a hate crime, gay men could become victims, too, in another attack. I would hope lesbians would likewise be concerned if gay men were attacked or killed.

    I can't even imagine what the survivor is going through. The sheer agony of losing someone you love and in such a horrible way. If there is a "God" one can only hope he/she punishes whoever would cause such pain. Stories like this make me be ashamed of being human, sad that so many just cannot let others live how they want.

    That is heartbreaking... they look like they were such a happy, adorable and well-loved couple. And to be left only questions must be torture on their loved ones.

    how do u know they were shot strictly for being lesbians?

    I've heard of lots of hetero couples being shot in instances like this before, it may have nothing to do with their lesbianisms. for all u know, it could have been a mugging gone bad.

    This seems like such a mess...
    Nobody knows the reason they were shot at yet, could have been a horrendous random attack on two people, who just happened to be a lesbian couple. My guess is that it was because they were gay, but I don't want to say anything until they found the killer.
    Can't imagine the pain the families are going through..

    It's not been revealed whether the seriously injured survivor has given any useful information to the police. It was dark out and unlit there, she may have little evidence to provide. So far the only physical evidence reported is a shell casing, which might have a fingerprint on it.
