LAKE BUTLER, Fla. -- The Union County sheriff confirms, 44-year-old David Griffis, the fourth person hit in a shooting rampage over the weekend - has died of his injuries.

Griffis was shot Saturday in a shooting spree in the small city of Lake Butler. The sheriff reports Griffis was taken off life support Monday night.

Sheriff Jerry Whitehead said Griffis wasn't given more than 10-percent chance to live. His condition didn't improve since he had been admitted to a Gainesville hospital in critical condition. The Sheriff called Griffis a "fighter."

The shooting began Saturday morning. Deputies report Hubert Allen, Jr. shot four people who worked for Pritchett Trucking -- before taking his own life. Allen was also a long time employee until about two weeks before the shooting.

In addition to Griffis, Marvin Pritchett, owner of the company, and Rolando Gonzalez-Delgado, a farmhand, also died.

Lewis Mabrey, Jr. was also injured. He is expected to get out of the hospital soon.

The Black-on-White carnage and slow-motion genocide of Whites' continues unabated. And it's all covered-up by the national media. Silent as the graveyard.

Government does not want the reasons of people who murder people released. The police always get to know, but the "people" have no need to know and should mind their place as peons. I am not justifying the shooting simply stating this looks like case where someone pushed a man to far.
