Mark Waid Goes On Rampage At BOOM! Offices, Wounded By Police
You thought it was just a slogan… they were trying to warn us.
Authorities were investigating this morning’s shooting spree at the BOOM! Studios offices that ended when a shotgun carrying Mark Waid was wounded by officers.
Los Angeles police spokesman Lee Travers said Waid went to the office at about 11:10 a.m. and began shooting up computers with a shotgun.
Officers confronted Waid and told him to drop the shotgun. Instead he pointed the gun at the officers, at which point they fired at Waid, Travers said.
Waid was taken to an area hospital for treatment and was expected to survive– a great relief to publisher Ross Richie, who was concerned that Waid’s script for Irredeemable #13 might be late.
Sources say Waid was upset because no one remembered his birthday a week and a half ago.
