Gunman Goes Mental Kills 9 and Himself

Quote:
A gunman has killed at least nine people in a series of shootings across two towns in the southern US state of Alabama before killing himself.

Officials say there were at least four separate shooting incidents.

The gunman fired on homes, a petrol station, shops and vehicles in Samson and Geneva near the Florida border.

Five people - including a child - were killed in one home. Several of the victims are believed to have been members of the gunman's family.

The gunman has not been formally identified, but was named in the local press as Michael McLendon.

The bloodshed began when the suspect is thought to have burned down a house where he lived with his mother in Kinston, near Samson, local coroner Robert Preachers told the Associated Press news agency.

Officials said they had not been able to get inside the house to determine a cause of death and determine whether the woman was the 10th victim of the killing spree.

Shock

The coroner said it was believed the suspect then headed to Samson where he shot and killed five people - four adults and a child - in one home.

"He started in his mother's house. Then he went to Samson and he killed his granny and granddaddy and aunt and uncle. He cleaned his family out," Mr Preachers said.

The gunman then killed one person each in two other homes, before killing someone at a Samson supply store, and another person at a service station.

A police officer told Reuters news agency that two of the dead were the wife and child of a deputy sheriff.

"He just cruised his automobile through Samson and was spraying the people with semi-automatic weapons [fire] at random," the Reverend Mike Shirah, of Geneva's Maple Baptist Church, told the BBC.

Samson Mayor Clay King said the town had opened a crisis centre at a local church.

"I've lived here 44 years and never, never dreamed of this happening," Mr King told AP.

From Samson, the gunman drove 19km (12 miles) east to Geneva. At one point, officers rammed his car and gunfire was exchanged.

In quotes: Alabama shooting

Geneva police chief Frankie Lindsay says he was saved by his bullet-proof vest when the man shot at his patrol with an automatic weapon.

"About 11 rounds hit my vehicle," he told the BBC. "Some of the shrapnel from the bullets did enter my shoulder."

The suspect fired a total of 30 rounds during the exchange with police, officials say.

The gunman then went inside a metal products plant where he is believed to have once worked, and shot himself.

There is no indication yet of a motive for the killings. The FBI has sent an agent to assist the local sheriff's office.

Samson has a population of about 2,000 people. Geneva's population is about about 4,400.

The towns are in a quiet rural area, our correspondent adds, and the local community are shocked that this incident has happened in such a place.

The next question is how can a mentally unstable individual get possession of a gun?

I've heard of this "gun control" thing but never seen it actually being implemented before.

Gun control only exists for those who don't wanna use guns to kill other people.

How can mentally unstable people get hold of drugs or kiddie porn etc etc. Even in the UK with strict gun control mentalists can still get a hold of guns illegally.

I got the news on right now and they just said the shooting left 11 people dead not 9. I originally heard it was 9. They also said he killed 4 dogs.

10 shot dead' at German school
Scene outside a school shooting in Winnenden, Germany on 11 March, 2009
The gunman is said to have shot at random before fleeing

At least 10 people have been killed in a shooting at a school in south-west Germany, police say.

Most of the dead are thought to have been pupils at the Albertville secondary school in Winnenden, north of Stuttgart.

Police say the gunman, who was reported to have been wearing black combat gear, has fled into the town.

A search is underway, with helicopters circling above the town. Police and rescue teams are at the school.

GERMAN SCHOOL ATTACKS
2006: A former pupil injures 11 students at a school in western town of Emsdetten before turning the gun on himself.
2002: A former pupil kills 17 people in his school in the eastern city of Erfurt, then kills himself.

Timeline of school shootings

"We have to assume a death toll in the double-digits," a spokeswoman for the interior ministry in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg told the Reuters news agency.

"These are students," she said.

The editor of the local paper, Frank Nipkau, told television channel N-TV that eight pupils and two adults were among the dead.

The incident is reported to have begun around 0945 (0845 GMT).

Local media reports say the gunman was a former pupil.

About 1,000 children are thought to attend the school, in the town some 20km (12 miles) north-east of Stuttgart.

Problem- Too many crimes commited with guns.
Solution- Give people more guns.

I can't believe this hasn't worked so far. The logic is flawless.
