ELI: THE PEOPLE WHO STUDY THIS KIND OF THING USE WORDS LIKE “RARE” AND “COMPLICATED .” THERE’S A LOT ABOUT THIS ONE HE JUST CANNOT FIGURE OUT. THE CHASE. THE SHOOTOUT. THE SHEER VIOLENCE, JARRING, CONFUSING, AND TOUGH TO DIGEST. EVEN THE DAY AFTER. THIS IS A HUGELY COMPLICATED STORY.

ELI: WE REACHED DR. METZL JUST MINUTES AFTER THE SHOOTING. THIS IS HAPPENING WITHIN THE BORDERS OF OUR OWN COUNTRY.

ELI: THEY BROUGHT NEW DETAILS AND NEW QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED INSIDE HERE. THINGS THAT MAKE THIS MASS SHOOTING DIFFERENT. IT IS CREDIBLY DIFFERENT TO HAVE A WOMAN, MUCH LESS A COUPLE INVOLVED.

ELI: THE COMPETITION, WAS THIS A SUSPECT BEING RADICALIZED? OR WAS WORKERS VIOLENCE? — WAS IT WORKPLACE VIOLENCE, OR BOTH? THEY HAD THESE SOPHISTICATED WEAPONS, HOMEMADE PIPE BOMBS. ELI: TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF A CRIME THAT BY NATURE IS SO SENSELESS. WHOLE SCENARIO IS RARE. IT’S DIFFERENT. THAT’S WHY INVESTIGATORS ARE SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS.

ELI: IN KANSAS CITY, WE MAY BE 1500 MILES AWAY FROM WHAT HAPPENED. BUT, DR. METZL SAYS IT IS IMPORTANT TO TALK TO CHILDREN ABOUT THIS. YOU HAVE A LOW CHANCE OF BEING CAUGHT IN THE MASS SHOOTING.
