Someone decided to get a little poetic (and horribly at that) in their account of the mall shootings in Omaha:
Hawkins carried out his shooting spree from the third floor of the Westroads Mall, the bullets from his rifle cutting through the sound of Christmas music as he terrorized shoppers and employees.
