I heard about this on the radio, but you can read about it here: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304851104579359141941621778

One thing that is funny/weird is that it was described as a highly accurate sniper attack. Yet the distances were 40-60 yards and, judging by casings recovered at the scene (presumably 7.62x39) the assumed weapons were AK-47s: A firearm associated more with reliability than accuracy.

You are talking about information from "talking head" "journalists" purveyors of disinformation.  THEY DO NOT KNOW...

The former head of FERC was the one who characterized it as a "sniper" attack, saying that despite muzzle flash they were able to hit targets from "40 to 60" yards away. Apparently he doesn't know much either.

More like a pot head bored while guarding his plot.
