Downtown, Seattle – Biologica, Inc has issues a mass recall of the antirejection drug Torimere after five people died. Representatives of Biologica state that there was a failure at their production plant in Tacoma, Seattle that caused contamination of batches of the drug. Torimere is an mTOR inhibitor used as an immunosuppressant during installation of cybernetics. We spoke with Allison Kayne, a nurse at the “A Whole New You” in Renton Mall. According to Ms. Kayne, the patient was having a pair of cybereyes installed. He had been prepped for surgery, but within a minute of being injected with the cocktail of antirejection and anti-inflammatories, the patient began to seize and turn red. By the time a CrashCart ambulance arrived, the patient had already passed away. According to medical examiners at Lone Star, the patients had each died of cyanide poisoning and an investigation is underway.
Downtown, Seattle – Shootout at Renton Mall. A shootout between what appeared to be three gangs occurred in the early evening at Renton Mall in Downtown Seattle, leaving seven dead and many more injured. According to Paul Farley, “I was by the Victory Athletic Shoes store on the fourth floor. Suddenly this big troll just runs right past me and punched some guy. He then pulled out a knife and just began stabbing people. He would stab a guy, then run onto someone else and stab them, too. Bullets were flying everywhere and someone was throwing huge bolts of lightning across the mall. I ran into the store and ducked down behind the display.” Mr. Farley was one of the lucky ones. Tandi Garza was at Renton Mall with her two children, ages 4 and 7. She had gone to Aguila Staffing in hopes of finding a job and was on her way back to her car when the gunfire began. She was hit twice in the back and was pronounced DOA by the time a Doc Wagon ambulance was able to get her to Riverton General Hospital. According to witnesses, the shootout was between the Green River Killers, the Mawr Money Gang, and a third unknown gang.
