The news Sunday that two Cardinal Mooney students were dead from gunshot wounds was the kind of news that stops everything that you are doing for a moment.
Two young people dying is heart-wrenching at any moment.
But it is intensely numbing coming off the euphoria the Mooney community celebrated all weekend following Friday's state title football victory.
As we worked Sunday to understand the tragedy and report it in a responsible way, every step seemed to become more painful.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends and the entire Mooney community.
