A Muslim immigrant opened fire and killed five people in Finland today before turning the gun on himself.
CNN reported: A gunman opened fire inside a busy shopping center near the Finnish capital of Helsinki Thursday, leaving five people dead, police said.
Four of the victims three men and one woman were killed at the Sello shopping center in Espoo, just west of Helsinki, police said. Some were employees of a grocery store at the mall, police said.
A fifth victim, also an employee of the grocery store, was found later at an apartment in Espoo, police said, without offering details. CNN affiliate MTV3 said the victim was a woman.
Police told a news conference hours after the shootings that they found a sixth victim, who they believed to be the shooter. Police had previously identified the suspect as 43-year-old Ibrahim Shkupolli.
MTV3 reporter Pauli Poutanen said he learned from police that the sixth body was found near the crime scene.
Shkupolli had lived in Finland for some time, police said, but they dont know his nationality.
Ibrahim killed his ex-wife and three men and a woman who worked with her.
ABC.net reported: Ibrahim Shkupolli, 43, opened fire in the suburban Helsinki mall where his ex-partner reportedly worked, shooting dead three men and a woman before fleeing, Finnish detectives told a press conference on Thursday (local time).
The body of his former partner, whom he had been barred by a court from approaching, was discovered later in a house on the outskirts of the capital.
Police said they believed the incident, the latest in a series of shooting sprees which have sent shockwaves through the Nordic country, was triggered by a domestic dispute.

Religion of Peace
Apologize for misspelling “Immigrant.” I was in too much of a hurry to get it posted.
At some point there’s going to be pogroms against Muslims all over Europe.
Repeat after me...religion of peace. GAH!!!
Those Finns need to stop invading Muslim countries.
The world is learning what Israel has put up with from the muslims...acts of terror against a civilian population..
But my guess is they will be passive until Islam is the major religion in Europe...
Back to the dark ages
Those Finns need to stop invading Muslim countries
OMG, we’ve found Ron Paul on FR! :p hahahaha
I needed that, thanks. Happy New Year!
Can’t we start here?
I have NO desire to vacation in Europe as I once wanted to do. As a matter of fact, flying anywhere in the world is now something I won't do until the USA adopts El Al procedures. Our leaders and politicians all use private jets and have security details, so none of this applies to them.
“I have NO desire to vacation in Europe as I once wanted to do.”
We’ve got so much to see here, unless you have been all over the US, you don’t need Europe.
Other than this, He was a quiet man.
>> The body of his former partner, whom he had been barred by a court from approaching, was discovered later in a house on the outskirts of the capital. <<
Yeah, that restraining order worked out just fine for the victim ....
More proof that you can pass laws against crime, but laws are not a panacea for eliminating crime. Gun Control is a “feel good panacea” that does nothing to stop the violence.
Chances are there will be. I rather like the idea. Unlike the pogroms against Jews, these pogroms will be justified.
Any information about gun laws there?
I never even noticed until you called attention to it. Thanks for the post.
We are blessed with a beautiful country! I am so grateful to be an US citizen!
But don’t you dare profile! To be PC, we need to take our limited resources and “focus them across the board.” ;-/ We dare not concentrate them on one particular group, even if that would be the most efficient course. We’re the government after all, we’re here to help... And this is the same group some want in charge of our health care?
Well, gang, JIHAD is, after all, WORLD-WIDE.
Looks like we need to kill them faster and if they keep wasting folks in Euurope, perhaps we’ll get more help from more European nations...
Don’t bet on it.
Dear God, Finland?
You have a choice, progroms against muslims,
or progroms against Jews and Christians.
Not a hard choice for me...
Look out for the anti-gun nuts. Finland is unusual because it has more firearms per person than the US.
“Other than this, He was a quiet man.”
LOL then along came a pork chop........
“Other than this, he was quiet man’’. Yeah, why the guy wouldn’t hurt a fly. Shoot up a shopping mall full of people but he wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Shkupolli was an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo who moved to Finland in 1990 [...] He had a previous conviction for causing bodily harm and had twice been fined for illegal possession of a handgun, in 2003 and 2007
They have a large article about this.
Scandinavia will soon be known as Sharianavia.
Yes, Malmo will explode one day. Hope my friend is armed with more than a blond.
Should be Right-wing Christians,,
They ‘Make’ Them Do It!
Now, let’s not act stupidly and jump to conclusions.
No! A Muslim?! Well I’ll be darned. Never woulda thunk it huh?
“Those Finns need to stop invading Muslim countries.”
This is just excellent. Well played.
That’s what some dimwit used to call it. I forget his name.
BTW, happy new year
Isn't that the same description for the Christmas Day Nigerian? it puts new credance to the saying "you've got to watch those quiet ones,....especially if they're potential jihadis."
Yeah, alway’s the quiet ones. As well as the loud ones too. Hitler made alot of noise, even as a kid.
I could only access this website via cache, but it is VERY informative:
Thanks mam, been busy today but was watching this one out of the corner of my eye.
Happy New Year happinesswithoutpeace.
And to you and yours, mam.
Fair winds, and calm seas for 2010.
Happy New Year, Pelham!
aaaand to all those that say “well I know some muslims and they are very nice people.....” I say go hire a mussie scum as your baby sitter!
Thanks mamadearest for the ping; I sent other articles about the mall murders to Muawiyah & Blam last night, long before the shooter was identified.
Moderate Muslim = OUT OF BULLETS
Finland now. I guess they can't say it's Bush's fault anymore.
They have three more years - and I'd wager they'll use the Bush did it excuse each and every one of them. It's gotten old and eats at credibility, and its finally being noticed by media (a few at least) - at long last.
