gilatrout: According to ABQ Journal the weapon was a shotgun. Two rounds in the face.I was surprised that it wasn't at NMMI in some Full Metal Jacket bathroom scene with some cadet.
Dimensio: Then he shot up in the sky,Did he shout "Aaaaah!"?
farkingismybusiness: Sure I believe ya...[weaponsofchoice.com image 850x637]But my Tommy Gun don't!/Roswell that ends well.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: [i.ebayimg.com image 300x277]Lego interpretation of the shooter
CleanAndPure: If band instruments are banned only bandits will have bands.
tallen702: Definitely sounds like a bullying incident from the way it's described. Single target, gun gets dropped by the perp once he's shot his target. Definitely not a random rampage.
DesertMP: Great! another shooting at a school! So the inevitable trolling will occur now....where did he get the gun? why did he shoot the ones he did? did his parents know about the gun? was he bullied? Does all of that matter? This kid did something he knew to be wrong and illegal and he had access to a firearm. He should be prosecuted and his parents should too. I have middle school age kids and firearms, but the firearms are secured in a safe and the kids wouldn't and more importantly COULDN'T get to them if they wanted. As for bullies, there have always been bullies in school, but we didn't shoot them! Argh this is so frustrating as a parent to hear of this kind of stuff.

slower than infinity: CleanAndPure: If band instruments are banned only bandits will have bands.See Spell Singer series... band instruments as weapons of war.
IronJelly: I live in Roswell, and I work for the newspaper (both facts verifiable if you email me)The police aren't reporting something. The initial call mentioned at least one dead, and we have a co-worker (well, a person in the back of the house who folds the papers) who tells us it's her nephew, and he definitely didn't make it.
Somacandra: [i.imgur.com image 850x456]One thing is for sure. This is not the time to talk about Wave Motion Gun control.

p0nk: Rapmaster2000:The world is full of bullies. You need to grow up and learn to tough it out, cry baby. What's that? You gonna cry? You gonna cry, baby. Yeah! Cry baby! Cry! HA HA HA!Just out of curiosity, what would you have him do? Authorities (school or gov't) are powerless, anti-bullying campaigns are a joke, and the kid isn't going to become Charles Atlas overnight so that he could defend himself.
