Were they shot with bullets? or other projectiles?
Did they hurt?
Are any wars relevant? or massacres?
Shot by themselves? or other people? opponents in a game?
Them: A few people? 10-50? 50-300? 300+?

Is "their" profession relevant?
Could this happen today?

Is "their" profession relevant? YES!
Could this happen today? it is from a true present-day story in a current feature magazine.

Is their progression related to guns or bullets?
Or bullet-proof material?
Are they testing something out?
Did anyone (or an audience) watch them get shot?
Was it one person who was shooting them all?

Bravo Quovynyte and players, all! A quickie indeed.

"Carolina Ballesteros, who is the company's design director and Caballero's fiancée, told me that being shot by her boyfriend is 'very normal': he has more than two hundred employees and has shot most of them (including Ballesteros) at least once, a practice that encourages team loyalty and close attention to quality control."

Haha, what a great puzzle... Now I know what I'll be doing when owning a gun and having problems at the office :-) I'll start shooting people around randomly and when asked why I'll say that I'm encouraging team loyalty, improving quality control, etc :-) Too bad I work in IT, but I guess throwing a Hard Disk Drive in the direction of a colleague might elicit the same type of response, albeit with less fatalities
