College Shooting at NIU

There was a shooting at NIU earlier today.
~18 were injured although news is still unfolding.

Google News

And no, Jack Thompson has yet to say anything to my knowledge.

Yeppers...........I am in Chi town and it is everywhere.....

I am guessing that some guys heart was crushed on Valentines day with a girl he had no chance so to show his feelings he walked into her class and started shooting people. It is valentines day and there was a reason for it that it occured today. What else would you shoot at people on V-day?

It was college so I am guessing it was love..........

Love can make you do crazy things and in some people love can make you kill people. I stick with my observation that he was broken hearted and wanted to show his love for some girl.

That is pretty close to wanting to kill people for one..........

We have all done weird things for the affections of the oppostie sex. Some seem to have taken it a bit far for my taste. They do say that love gives you that special feeling that you cannot shake no matter how much you try.

This modern day St. Valentine's massacre is a terrible tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with people of Northern Illinois University.

My prayers as well..........

there are sick kids everywhere now walking around as strangers with the eyes of the crazed and it is too bad that we cannot stop them before they do something like this.

6 dead total
4 dead at scene
2 others died
(this is with shooter)
I think he said 4 males and 2 females (I can be wrong)

All those injured were students. Although I believe they have already said that the shooter was NOT a student.

or, perhaps if he were rejected by a girl, it could have been the trigger to his already psychotropically influenced mindset

Why don't they deny these people the right to own a gun?

And don't give me that "it's every US citicen's right to own a gun" bullshit!

You don't go to an asylum and hand out free guns do you???

Goddamn...

This is awful news. I hope this does not become commonplace in the USA.

Incredibly horrible.

Growing up and living not 30min from Tech it was a disgusting feeling to have it be so close to home.. Texting friends to just make sure they were ok.. Getting replies from people locked in a bathroom, letting them know whats on the news.

VA Tech shooter was diagnosed as being crazy.. I think anyone who would want to cause harm to innocent people are completely crazy. Diagnosed or not but something had to of been wrong with the guy.

All of it is sickening.
