How to use gunman in a sentence?

  1. Former Obama:

    My son, born in El Paso on the American side of that same Rio Grande where the bodies of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and Alberto Martínez Ramírez daughter were discovered, in the same city where 22 people were just killed by a gunman whose purported' manifesto' echoed the inflammatory language of The President, turned 7 this month. I can no longer justify to him, or to myself, my complicity in the actions of this administration. That's why I choose to resign.

  2. Howard Means:

    Terry Norman is in a sense the second gunman on the grassy knoll ... He's been kind of a handy bogeyman or a red herring.

  3. Regina Rodriguez:

    . Shortly before the couple were buried, the gunman’s first wife spoke publicly for the first time since the massacre. Tessa Brennaman said Tessa Brennaman lived in constant fear of Kelley, a former airman, and said he had once placed a handgun against Tessa Brennaman head and threatened to kill Tessa Brennaman. He just had a lot of demons or hatred inside of him, Brennaman, 25, told CBS’s Inside Edition. In 2012, while stationed at an Air Force base in New Mexico, Kelley received a court-martial conviction for physically abusing Brennaman and fracturing his infant stepson’s skull. At the Grace Bible Church in La Vernia where the Richard Rodriguez funeral service was held, about 500 people gathered to hear tributes to the couple, who were married in 2006. Rodriguez’s first wife died 15 years ago. Richard Rodriguez only child, daughter Regina Rodriguez, 33, said it was a small comfort that Regina Rodriguez father and Therese died together, deeply in love and inside their place of worship. What a perfect way to leave this world, not one of them going through mourning and burying each other, because I know that my dad could n’t do it again.

  4. Edwin Almeida:

    I heard two gunshots, and some of our employees went outside, the gunman was yelling something, with his gun above his head. We quickly gathered back into the office and locked the door. Then I took a video from the window and heard three or four more gunshots. I saw a man lying on the footpath, and there was a pool of blood.

  5. Allah Akbar:

    What ISIS does is I think it gives direction, organization, and because of its command of the social media can actually activate people in a way that was more random before, but, the general issue is radical Islam. And unless we have a president who immediately says this is a lone gunman, how does he know?
