It seems that various criminal elements were trying to mend whatever has caused increased violence between them with disasterous results. A group of criminals, and individuals in local government that were found to have ties to criminal activities, all died in an explosion.
The forensics of the scene indicate that the people in attendance had relinquished their firearms; as a pile of guns were found near the entrance to the warehouse where the meeting took place. It seems at least a few of those who attended had managed to sneak in wearing explosive suicide vests, and detonated them during the meeting. One fringe theory is that the explosives were actually implanted, with the suicide bombers knowledge.
While the city is not without it's crime, this level of violence and sheer brutality is rarely seen. City Hall has tasked the police gang units to put together a task force in conjunction with SWAT teams and under cover agents to try to find key persons that may be trying to use the power vacuum to their advantage, as well as quell violent actions by career criminals.
