Quote

 The person responsible for shooting at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' main security booth at the Provo Missionary Training Center is being sought by police.

The shooting occurred at approximately 2:28 a.m. on Monday.

The driver of a white SUV fired multiple rounds at the booth located on 900 East, according to Provo police.

The investigation is ongoing.

Police told 2News that no one was injured and at least four bullets went through the glass.

Several bullet casings were found on the road.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Campbell with Provo Police at rcampbell@provo.org or 801-852-7315.

Crazy times.

I'm glad nobody was injured.

Thanks,

-Smac

That horse  has been whipped raw, man. 

Wow.  What an ugly, offensive, provocative thing to say.   -Smac

Incidentally the word "angel" is now politically incorrect, and reflects discrimination against dead people. They should now be referred to as "persons experiencing disembodiment".

a.  Average, garden-variety crazy, probably with a grudge against the world in general? or

b.  Cut-above average, garden-variety crazy, specifically with a grudge against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

My money, if I were to put any money down, would be on (a).

Stay tuned!

That they targeted a security booth and not just a random building makes me go with B.

Unless it is

C. Had a really bad day and was driving around and pulled into the MTC entrance and realized they had to turn around and decided to fire off some shots to show their displeasure with the Universe.

I do like {c). ;)

or could be just some giggly teens who snuck out, stole a gun and shot something.  

Could be an active member who realizing the Church has more money than it could possibly need, feeling a bit foolish for donating so much to such a large conglomerate corporation under the guise of charity, just letting out the displeasure a bit.  

Could be lots of things.

To be fair, I think I covered the second possibility you mention in my Option (b).  You heard it there first! :D;)

I would think someone with that amount of premeditation would go with the local chapel. Probably closer and less likely to get shot back at.

I thought that is the demographic inside the MTC and it said the shots came from outside.

E. A disgruntled future missionary who really wanted to serve abroad just got called to Boise Idaho and just really needed to vent out some frustration.

Shoot fellas, I'm not endorsing someone taking shots at the MTC building for any reason.  I meant to point out anyone could be shooting at it for many reasons.  And yes, Kenngo, I acknowledge your options cover it.  Good job.  Sorry for not taking a closer look.

To be fair, there are at least some people who feel that way about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, its teachings, and its leaders.  Most all of them, however, simply file crazy lawsuits! <_<:rolleyes:

Meh.  I wasn't too bent out of shape over it. ;) It's all good!  :friends:

:D:rofl::D All kidding aside, though, I do have a testimony that the Lord knows where He wants and needs his missionaries to go.  (In the case of Yours Truly, however, I freely admit that the Lord sent me where I would do the least damage to the Kingdom! ;)https://greatgourdini.wordpress.com/2014/12/21/the-power-of-the-one/

Is there ever anyone in that "main security booth"?  Aren't those booths like the booths at some of our temples, outside near the roads?  I have never seen anybody in those, and figured they were guarded only by angels beyond the veil.

Provo Police looking to identify suspect in criminal mischief/trespassing at Latter-day Saint temple

PROVO, Utah -- Police in Provo are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who may be a suspect of trespassing and causing "criminal mischief" at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple.
PROVO, Utah -- Police in Provo are asking for Provo Police tweeted Monday that they want to speak to the man, pictured above, as part of an investigation into trespassing and criminal mischief at the Provo Temple.

The department is also investigating an incident early Monday morning where the driver of a white SUV fired multiple rounds at the main security booth of the church's Missionary Training Center directly across from the temple.

Provo Police told FOX 13 they are suspicious that the two investigations could be connected, but nothing has officially connected them at this point.

So not a teen...he looks more like he means serious injury to someone.  Hopefully whatever the reason, he has vented enough he will be reasonable when the cops come calling.

Never waste an opportunity to get in a dig at the Church of Jesus Christ, however strained, tenuous or lame the connection might be.

I have been past that booth many times, and there has ALWAYS been someone inside whenever I have done so. As a visitor, I could not have gotten inside the grounds without someone to electronically open the gate.

Remarkably clear image. 
 

Given how quickly Provo PD nailed suspects in the recent rioting/shooting on Center Street, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had someone in custody within the week.
