"Three killed after dispute between neighbors"

Alan: Hmm... Must have been the ready availability of knives.

The same day as the slaughter at Sandy Hook, the crazy man pictured above attacked an elementary school in China. In the absence of guns, he wielded a knife. Although he injured 22 children, many of them seriously, no one was killed.

According to police it is determined that 50-year old, Anthony Charles Hardy was the double shooting suspect that fatally shot and killed a neighbor after an argument.
Deputies were called to a home off Coachman Court in Harrisburg around 4 p.m. Friday afternoon where reported shots were fired.
The Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office arrived on the scene, along with Harrisburg Fire First Responders and Cabarrus County EMS.
Shortly after their arrival, 42-year old Daniel Thomas Kirchner and another neighbor, 64-year old Gary Wade Stocks both of Coachman Ct., were the deceased victims found in the backyard behind Kirchner's residence.
Prior to Deputies arrival it was believed that the susupect fled the area.
Several minutes later, another gunshot rang out from the next door neighbors house of the 7000 block of Coachman Ct. Deputies immediately retreated to coverage and established a security perimeter around the suspect's residence where he barricaded himself inside.
After several hours of negotiations with Hardy at least two more gunshots were heard from inside the home.
The Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team, assisted by Kannapolis Special Response Team, entered the suspect's house and found the suspect deceased from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Complete details have not been determined as to why the shooting occurred; however, it was reported that Hardy did approach Kirchner in his backyard just prior to the shooting.
Sheriff Riley of the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office stated that "this was a tragic and senseless shooting. It is very sad to see innocent victim's lives taken away." "My heart goes out to the families involved, and we are very lucky that officers and others in the neighborhood were not seriously injured." 
The Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office does not have any more information available at this time.
If anyone has any further information, please contact the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division at             704-920-3000      .
