Insert pasty faced, lives-at-home, disappointed at life's outcome after hundreds of gaming hours joke here.

On a serious note, scary and hopefully gets resolved quickly and peacefully.

Channel 3 and 10 are carrying it live at present.

Right now there is smoke coming out of the building so there must be a fire.

They've got the suspect out now. Inch of water on the ground. What a mess.

can you imagine how expensive that is going to be to clean up, just from the water damage alone? and the merchandise that is ruined? even the carpets may need to be pulled and the floors dried out. it could close that mall for a week. and all those employees out of work too.

Exactly what I thought. Smoke, fire, water damage to the buildings and products a month before Black Friday isn't good especially in this economy. Hopefully not as bad as feared.

Must have been frustrating for firefighters to standby watching smoke rise from the rooftop until the guy was arrested and area secure.

Looks like the fire just got a whole lot worse. Big plumes of black smoke pouring out.

still? I guess they are really waiting a long time to get the firefighters in there. maybe the police are being a little too careful. I can't imagine the fire has spread, but why would there be more smoke now? the greater the smoke damage, the longer its going to take for the mall to recover. What a strange thing. The guy sounded deranged.

Saw on the news that he tweeted "They(Gamestop)won't give me my check" plus more about letting it burn, so he must have been an employee.

They call it "Nerd Rage"

Maybe his collector's edition copy of Medal of Honor didn't come in.

While this is bad, at least no one seems to be hurt. Looking for a silver lining, Maybe some of the stores will move over to Palladio for the Christmas season.

too bad they didn't hold him a little longer last night. at least he's ambitious, moving up from WalMart to the Galleria in less than 24 hours.

what will they do with all that smoke and water damaged inventory? what a terrible waste. is it even possible for them to recover and reopen by Black Friday (the day after thanksgiving)?

On the bright side....maybe shoppers will stay in Folsom and shop what little stores we have left, thus driving up sales tax revenue, thus.......well, who knows how that money would be spent?
