Thumbs down School shooting :( - March 11th 2009, 02:53 PM

Teen Gunman Dead After Killing 15 at a German School

WINNENDEN, Germany Ė A 17-year-old gunman dressed in black opened fire at his former high school in southwestern Germany on Wednesday then fled in a hijacked car, killing at least 15 people before police shot him to death, state officials said.
The gunman entered the school in Winnenden and opened fire, shooting at random, police said. He killed nine students, three teachers and a passer-by outside the building, officials said.
"He went into the school with a weapon and carried out a bloodbath," said regional police chief Erwin Hetger. "I've never seen anything like this in my life."
Triggering a land and air manhunt, he hijacked a car, freed the passengers and drove about 25 miles (40 kilometers) before police found him. When confronted, he killed two bystanders in a shootout with police before he was slain, Baden Wuerttemburg governor Guenther Oettinger said. Two officers were seriously injured, but there was no immediate information on other casualties.
Four hours after the shootings began, police announced the teenager's death.
It was the nation's worst shooting since another teenage gunman killed 16 people and himself in another high school in 2002.
Concerned parents quickly swarmed the school, which was evacuated.
Police have have identified the gunman only as Tim K, who graduated last year from the school of about 1,000 students.
The German government was "deeply shocked and incensed about the appalling killing spree," Ulrich Wilhelm, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel, said in Berlin.
In 2002, 19-year-old Robert Steinhaeuser shot and killed 12 teachers, a secretary, two students and a police officer before turning his gun on himself in the Gutenberg high school in Erfurt, in eastern Germany.
Steinhaeuser, who had been expelled for forging a doctor's note, was a gun club member licensed to own weapons. The attack led Germany to raise the age for owning recreational firearms from 18 to 21.

Oh god... really?

That son of a bitch made a post on 4chan about shooting up a school. I just saw the thread today. Wow.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

There was a lot of buzz about it this morning. God I hate that site sometimes.

This is really sad. I hate hearing about people being shot at school. That is one place where you should feel safe.

That's sad, I feel bad when that sort of thing happens, I mean... how can you prepare for something like that? And if you're trapped in the school when it happens.... that's just awful, people should be able to feel safe at school

He was dressed in black? Must have been all that rock n roll music that made him do it.

For real though sad story.

How awful. What is wrong with people? My heart goes out to the families of the victims. I hope them the best in getting through their losses.

Bets open on how music and video games cause violence and must be banned

I agree, it is a sad story. I heard on the radio someone bought plaques with warum and Gott, wo wirst du

Not the same killing, but considering that most shootings happen after the guy's kicked out of school, this:

Oh and on that wearing black thing... lets just hope they don't start lynching goths like they did in the states...
