February 9, 2014 Gunman kills two at Russian cathedral, A man who worked as a security guard was instead the attacking gunman who killed two and wounded 6 when he opened fire on worshipers at a Russian Orthodox cathedral on Sakhalin Island off Russia’s Pacific coast. A nun, Lyudmila Pryashnikova, and another man were killed trying to stop the gunman who started firing at icons and worshipers after the service ended. The gunman’s motives were unknown. He was taken into custody where he would be given mental health evaluation. The incident did not appear to be connected to Caucasus militant threats against the Olympics in Sochi, or the attempt to hijack a Turkish airliner to Sochi. It was only days after the February 3rd attack when a Moscow teenager killed a teacher and a policeman and held classmates hostage Russia's first major school shooting, which was also not believed to be connected to terrorism. The media did not note any connection to other attacks on churches and clergy in the middle east or north America.

3 dead after gunfire at Delaware soccer tournament

Armed men suspected of triggering an exchange of gunfire at a weekend soccer tournament in Delaware that left three people dead and two wounded apparently targeted the tournament organizer, but authorities on Monday remained mum about the motive.
The dead included the tournament organizer, a 16-year-old boy participating in the tournament and one of three suspects alleged to have initiated the deadly violence Sunday afternoon at a park near downtown Wilmington.
One of two suspects taken into custody was the subject of an outstanding warrant charging him with first-degree murder in a 2008 shooting, authorities said.
Police said one or more people in the crowd returned fire at the gunmen
the gunmen apparently targeted tournament organizer Herman Curry, 47, of New Castle.
According to witnesses, one of the gunmen tapped Curry on the shoulder, and he was fatally shot in the chest when he turned around, Dietz said.
"It does not appear to be a random shooting," said Dietz, who refused to confirm reports suggesting that Curry was targeted because he was a witness to the 2008 shooting.
Also killed was Alexander Kamara, 16, of Pike Creek, who died after being shot in the head. Kamara was a student at A.I. DuPont High School in Greenville, where he wrestled and played soccer.
One of the alleged gunmen, Sheldon Olge, 43, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at Christiana Hospital
