shooting spree

SALEM, Ore. (AP)-Motive
remained a mystery yesterday in the
hail of bullets fired into a crowded rock
'n' roll tavern by a silent gunman who
witnesses said reloaded his weapon
twice. Four people were killed and 20
were wounded.
"Thesshots range out so fast, faster
than you could register and all you
could see was the hand and the gun and
then people lying all over the floor. It all
happened in about a minute," said
James Helton, owner of the Oregon
Museum Tavern, where it was Ladies
Night during the Thursday shootings.

Ore., was wrestled to the ground by
nearby customers and arrested by

battles broke out in West Belfast and
Londonderry yesterday and IRA
prisoners, incensed by the death of
Bobby Sands, said they would go on
hunger strikes "one by one" until Brit-
tam grants them political status.
Police announced that Desmond
Guiney, 14, who was critically injured
when rioters attempted to hijack his
father's milk truck in the Roman
Catholic New Lodge area Tuesday, had
died in a hospital. His father, too, was
critically injured in the attack by
rioters who wanted the bottles for
gasoline bombs.
GANGS OF UP TO 50 youths hurled
fire bombs and stones at police and
British army troops in Catholic areas
yesterday. Trucks were hijacked and
set afire, blocking streets for hours in ,
the Lower Falls Road and Anderson-
town districts. Troops fired plastic
bullets to break up the gangs.
In Londonderry, eight vehicles were
hijacked and burned, police said, and in
Glasgow, Scotland, three firebombs
thrown at a British army building over-
night caused slight damage.
Sinn Fein, political front for the Irish
Republican Army, said a fourth
prisoner would begin fasting on Satur-
day to take Sands' place.

POLICE HAD not determined how
many rounds were fired in the tavern
Thursday night. Witnesses said the
gunman was able to reload twice,
although customers jumped him before
he could fire the third clip. Van Dyke
said the 9mm semi-automatic can hold
up to 14 rounds per clip.
Van Dyke said authorities would in-
vestigate to see if there was nay, link
between the shootings and the disap-
pearance of a young woman from the
same bar 12 weeks ago. The body of
Terry Cox Monroe was found about a
month later in the Willamette River.
Police said she was the victim of a
THREE PEOPLE died on the floor of
the tavern as customers grabbed bar
towels to help the wounded. Police said
a fourth person died on the way to a
hospital and several other victims were
reported in critical condition.
Bar owner Helton said a local band
called Jenny and the Jeans was playing
when the shooting started. About 100
people were in the tavern at the time,
with about 30 on the dance floor, mostly
in their early 20s.

Adams said an as-yet-unidentified
volunteer had already been chosen to
replace Sands, who died Tuesday in the
66th day of his fast at the Maze prison to
press demands for concessions for IRA
THREE OTHER IRA hunger strikers
- Francis Hughes, in the 55th day of a
fast, and Raymond McCreesh and

Margaret Thatcher that she "will have
to kill 440 hunger strikers before they
will give in," Adams told reporters at a
West Belfast hotel. The prison has 440
IRA prisoners.
Also at the news conference was Ber-

the campaign on behalf of the IRA
prisoners, who said, "There is noway

minimum demands" even if more die.

IRA leaders appealed for calm after
Sands' death, and the widely forecast
explosion of violence has not taken
place. A Belfast policeman was shot to
death Wednesday and a man was killed
as he prepared to throw a bomb at
security forces early Thursday,
authorities said.
