"Bennett said shots were fired sporadically for over an hour."

"He had a machine gun, book bag, camouflage shirt, military green hat, white pants and a bookbag,"

Two bookbags, he must really mean business.

I'll wait for confirmation of type of firearm before I'll believe it was a "machine gun". Semi-auto rifle, perhaps. But "machine guns" are really hard and expensive to get ahold of. In fact, they're damn near illegal in Ohio.

Law didn't seem to stop this guy though.
2003-05-09 05:42:23 PM  
He must have seen it done on Jackass...

2003-05-09 05:43:07 PM

Who can turn a tub
Into a tube?

/old school song from an educational television. If anybody remembers it, you rock! Now where is it from?

In the new Peter B. Lewis building no less. The radio is reporting that he was carrying a sledgehammer, maybe he's planning on doing a little remodeling.

Guess they really need to institute a concealed weapons ban at that campus...
2003-05-09 05:43:46 PM  
Well no wonder he shot up that was designed by Frank Gehry. I woulda done the same thing myself (well, I guess I'd avoid shooting people..) That guy designed a building at my college too:

My confidence in the media and general public to tell a machine gun apart from a pointy stick is somewhat limited.
2003-05-09 05:44:07 PM  
Well it is close to finals week, this was bound to happen.
2003-05-09 05:44:37 PM  
THIS JUST IN: a picture of the gunman

This is a machine gun:

Unless he had one of these, no dice.
2003-05-09 05:44:56 PM  
I just don't understand this particular type of asshole. I can understand someone wanting to go and wast someone else, but to randomly waste people is lame. If you have a problem with someone take it up with them loser, not with random people.

Safe: Electric Company.

What's with the roof of that building on CNN? Looks like the Sydney Opera House exploded.
2003-05-09 05:45:49 PM  
for most people, a machine gun is just a word for what is called a rifle. people think an mp5 is a machine gun.
2003-05-09 05:46:04 PM  
CNN's got a guy on the phone from inside the building
2003-05-09 05:46:20 PM  
gune ? gunE ? Thank God I'm not the only poor typist around here.

As far as the article goes, it's short on details. Not surprised since they haven't caught him yet. Hope they catch this one alive.
2003-05-09 05:46:37 PM  
can anyone tell me why it went from the story of the shooter, to talking about the designer of the building and how much it cost? it like completely went way off topic for half the article.

"A Machine Gune?! Save the wee turtles!"

Wow, for just joining Fark, you're off to a good start. You'll fit right in with the rest of us misfits!

Bennett said shots were fired sporadically for over an hour.

An HOUR? Where in the hell were the cops? Of course, if they're anything like the cops here at Oklahoma State, they aren't worth a shiat anyway.
2003-05-09 05:49:23 PM  
apparently he had a book bag...AND a bookbag!!!
2003-05-09 05:49:38 PM  
you think the roofs weird look at the brick walls they curve.I drove by there one day almost wrecked was like WTF is that guess the guys a critic
2003-05-09 05:50:14 PM

The cops at UF were all over the first-time pot smokers and those nefarious bicyclists running stop signs. They seem to have met their match when real crimes began taking place (i.e. Gainesville murders)
2003-05-09 05:50:20 PM  
White pants? Oh! Must be the wardrobe of the twins in Matrix Reloaded....
2003-05-09 05:50:32 PM  
Why doesn't it just say Case Western Reserve University?
2003-05-09 05:50:42 PM  
TacoFlavoredKeeses: What's with the roof of that building on CNN? Looks like the Sydney Opera House exploded.

That's Art. Just ask Uncle Pete.

Crap, now they're saying they hear more shots...

1) Despite that detailed description, they didn't mention his race. PC strangulation at work.

2) The laws against murder don't stop murderers -- neither will laws against owning guns. If anything, we should put guns into the hands of law-abiding citizens so they can take care of asshats like this.
2003-05-09 05:51:14 PM  
Weaps Indeed. The media cares little for facts though.
2003-05-09 05:51:25 PM  

That's the "Ma-Deus" Brownings MA-2 if I'm not mistaken?
2003-05-09 05:51:33 PM  

You must be so proud.
2003-05-09 05:51:33 PM  
Floor Plans. In case you need a way out.

First sign of a nutcase, white pants before Memorial Day.
