Goddamn, dude. That sucks.
Hope your friends are okay.

Here's what MSN is saying:

Man in trench coat opens fire at Canada school
Gunman wounds at least 12 in Montreal before being killed, police say


MONTREAL - A gunman in a black trench coat opened fire Wednesday in the cafeteria of a Montreal college and wounded at least 12 people — six critically — before being fatally shot, witnesses and authorities said.

Witnesses and police initially said the gunman appeared to have shot himself, but Montreal police later said they believe officers killed the suspect at Dawson College.

Scores of panicked students at the school near downtown fled into the surrounding streets after the shooting broke out in the school of about 10,000. Some had clothes stained with blood.

Police spokesman Ean Lafreniere said there was just one gunman at the school and the search for any others was over.

CBC-TV showed police with guns drawn standing behind a police cruiser as a SWAT team searched the 12-acre campus in case there was more than one gunman.

 

The Montreal General Hospital said it admitted 12 people, including six who were in critical condition. Two were listed in serious condition and four were stable.

Student Devansh Smri Vastava said he saw a man in military fatigues with “a big rifle” storm the school’s cafeteria.

“He just started shooting at people,” Vastava said, adding that he heard about 20 shots fired. He also said teachers ran through the halls telling students to get out.

Other witnesses spoke of a gunman wearing a black trench coat.

'Shooting at everybody'
“We all ran upstairs. There were cops firing. It was so crazy,” Vastava said. “I was terrified. The guy was shooting at people randomly. He didn’t care, he was just shooting at everybody. I just got out.”

Derick Osei, 19, said he was walking down the stairs when he saw a man with a gun.

“He ... just started shooting up the place. I ran up to the third floor and I looked down and he was still shooting,” Osei said. “He was hiding behind the vending machines and he came out with a gun and started pointing and pointed at me. So I ran up the stairs. I saw a girl get shot in the leg.” NBC VIDEO

 
• Eyewitness: 'My heart was pounding'
Sept 13: An eyewitness describes what she saw at the scene where four people were killed and 16 injured at a college in Montreal, followed by an interview with a Canadian police official.
NBC News
 
 

Osei said people in the cafeteria were all lying on the floor.

Another student who gave her name as Chloe tearfully recounted seeing the gunman pointing a weapon at people.

“All of a sudden I turned around and saw a man who was all dressed in black,” she told radio station 940 News.

“This dude with the clothes started pointing the gun at other people. He was right behind me. He turned around and went in the corner of the cafeteria,” she said.

Another student told 940 News that she had seen two people who had been shot, including one who was hit in the neck. The student said a friend told her four people had been shot.

Ingrid Keigan, a 17-year-old student, said she saw one person outside the school who had been shot in the chest.

A SWAT team and canine units were at the campus, going floor by floor to look for victims, Sgt. Giuseppe Boccardi told CNN.

“Most of the students have exited the college grounds,” he said.

People have also been evacuated from the nearby Alexis-Nihon shopping center.

Tighter gun laws after 1989 mass shooting
Canada’s worst mass shooting also happened in Montreal. Gunman Marc Lepin killed 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnic on Dec. 6, 1989.

That shooting spurred efforts for tighter gun laws and greater awareness of societal violence — particularly domestic abuse. Canada’s tighter gun law was achieved mainly as the results of efforts by survivors and relatives of the victims.

Another shooting in Montreal occurred in 1992, when a Concordia University professor killed four colleagues.

Dawson College was the first English-language institution in Quebec’s network of university preparatory colleges when it was founded in 1969. It is the largest college of general and vocational education, known by its French acronym CEGEP, in the province.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I just had strange flashbacks to Bowling for Columbine where Moore stressed how Canada was some sort of paradise with its gun laws/lack of aggression.   

But that aside it is a very tragic event.  Shame.  :judo:

That's pretty tragic. I wonder why it's so popular among crazies to shoot people in schools these days.

I don't think it's THAT popular, really. But I imagine for losers who crave the attention of their peers so desperately, shooting them in the head may just be a way to get it.

Anyway, this little escapade didn't even warrant any fatalities.  What a loser.

Well, if we're still going by the Columbine shooters' standard for scoring, which by their own admission is based on DOOM, then his frags would be -1. So he still loses.

I love your deduction Wally! Hope your buds are o.k! A terrible tragedy, indeed.

I've read the news today (for those who can read french, Cyberpresse.ca), the guy actually kind of announced what he did on his blog, hosted on vampirefreaks.com...

-1 frags.  Excellent, Wally :troll:

Yeah, that was one of my first thoughts as well. Good job, Moore.

This guy was a complete tosser. It is always discouraging to hear of people doing such atrocious things. All I hope is that he didn't play GTA - that's the last bloody thing the gaming community needs.

well i'd have to translate it and im at work for now but to make it simple he had a personnal journal on the web like shuriken said and he was saying that he disliked the jocks and that he hated humanity and at some point he wanted everybody to be dead and he also filled out some kind of questionnaire on the net (i think it was on a metal website or something) and the result in the end categorized him as an army guy and or a killer.

he used to like guns a lot.

lots of pictures of him and his gun. one showing him with some kind of riffle with no emotions at all on the pic with that for a comment (ready for action)

i think he also "liked" satan (that doesnt really mean anything but still is weird)

some stuff like that!

WHOA! WHAT A PSYCHO! An internet-certified psycho too!

So, he had a blog on the net, hated jocks and humanity and filled out a web quiz? Why didn't someone contact psychiatric services immediately? He's clearly a psychopath on the level of... every teenaged boy in the civilized world.

BBC's reporting this guy, Kimveer Gill, 25, "had blog on a website devoted to the Goth sub-culture in which he posed with guns and referred to himself as an "Angel of Death"."

Jesus, this guy was a fucking loser. I'm sorry about the woman he killed, but honestly, I just wish he hadn't done this so I wouldn't have to know of the existence of people like this.

ugh... to still be living in that sort of fantasy world at 25 really is pathetic.  The world really has no benefit to keeping him around, I'm just sad the fucker took someone with him.

he's still 0, by Doom standards

I always laugh at how pathetic the reporters are about this stuff and their breaking discovery of "Kid had internet website with gruesome pictures and pornographic material!"  :isidro:

Well, I think reporters like that (and since I'm a real reporter now, i can say this kind of shit) have a tendency to overgeneralize people's situations. "He was a blogger from Canada who loved the demon overlord and guns." See, that just reads better! To hell with the truth.

Not that I'm trying to justify this loser's "hobbies." I just think the media enjoys going on rollercoasters like this with full-frontal coverage of our twisted internet-fueled generation.  (See, that's catchy!)
