UPenn Student Opens Fire On Drexel Students
CBS News via KYW ^ | 1/31/2007

Posted on 01/31/2007 6:55:24 PM PST by Kid Shelleen

Police are investigating a shooting in University City involving a University of Pennsylvania student and students from Drexel University.

Authorities said the University of Penn student fired 15 shots into an apartment occupied by Drexel students on 44th Street near Pine.

Police said the shooting all stemmed from an argument between a Penn student and a Drexel student about their backgrounds. The Penn student, who is Korean, was arguing with the Drexel student, who is Indian, over their backgrounds, police said.

"There's some indication that he was accusing him of being from another country, possibly being spies and that’s what he wanted to confront him about," said Lt. Walker.

According to police, the second-year University of Pennsylvania Law student shot at his neighbor's front door. The 9mm gun shot out the locks on the door.

Sounds more like a postal worker than a spy.

Given that Penn is the better school, seems like an open and shut case.

Re #4

Is the shooter Korean-American, a S. Korean, or an ethnic Korean from China?

What is this argument about? Is the 'Korean' making any pro-North argument to Indians?

I am sure local media in S. Korea would be abuzz with this story if not already. I will post an update.

A Korean Quaker and an Indian Dragon. That's just asking for trouble.

When will we pull our people out of Philadelphia and redeploy them to NJ or DE?

MY GF lived on 47th and Cedar, across the street from the Carrot Cake Man.
After someone was shot dead on her doorstep, she decided to move. Sad, I really loved that carrot cake.

Of course, it's all because of the war in Iraq!

Just ask Filthydelphia Mayor Street. That's his excuse for rising crime in his city.

That must have been a hell of an argument. I didn't know backgrounds were that controversial!

Idiot Ivy League student didn't need the gun to argue his point. Penn IS the better school.

"There's some indication that he was accusing him of being from another country, possibly being spies and that’s what he wanted to confront him about," said Lt. Walker.

Authorities said because the Penn student thought the Drexel student was spying on him, he opened fire. "The victim in the case, he is petrified," said Lt. Walker, adding, "When we arrived on the scene, he was shaking."

The gunman was taken into custody for aggravated assault and is being held at Southwest Detectives.

My son attended Drexel in his freshman year on an academic/lacrosse scholarship. He had had enough of the city after one year and transferred to a university in the "burbs"!

Just more ammunition for Mayor Street & Guv Rendell's gun-grabbing plan to end violence in the Keystone State by banning guns in cities.

Talk about blowing your future away... You'd think a law school student would be a little more risk averse than that.

No, that was 63rd and Osage, if I recall correctly. Osage is one block behind where I lived. The high school Bill Cosby attended was visible out my bedroom window.

Beyond that, I don't feel comfortable characterizing the ethnic... umm.. situation of the neighborhood back then... 1980 through 1984. Move happened, I believe, in 1985. So did Harvey Milk and Mayor Moscone, and, consequently, Dianne Feinstein. But Ronnie was in the WH, Iran-Contra and the Challenger accident handn't happened yet. The economy was humpin' and life was, on the whole good. If lonely.

By the way, Doc, I was just thinking about you last weekend. That terrific story you told me in private... you know... "put the mask on." Still tickles me today.

Yeah, and the probably $150k plus interest he'd have to pay back would balance it out.

Based on the article, I'd be leaning toward a case of paranoid schizophrenia.

Are "Hate Crime" charges going to get filed? If a "angry white male" was involved as the shooter you can rest assured those charges would be screamed by the MSM.

Don't forget the "he'd have to" should be "he still has to"--at least most of it.
