    LAROSE, La. – A Louisiana middle school student stormed into a classroom and fired a gunshot over a teacher's head Monday before shooting himself in a bathroom, authorities said. Investigators found a suicide note and plans for a rampage in the teen's journal. The 15-year-old student, whose name was not released, fired once around 9 a.m. inside a classroom at Larose-Cut Off Middle School, then shot himself in the head, said Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre. He was in critical but stable condition. The teacher had never taught the teen. Webre said investigators found a note describing the boy's plans...

Police say it's unclear if he's a student. House Master Tom Conley tells The Harvard Crimson daily student newspaper the man doesn't live in the undergraduate dorm. A witness tells the Crimson the victim appeared to be "college-aged" and was bleeding but conscious. Dorm administrators have e-mailed students about the shooting and asked them to cooperate...

    A person was shot this evening at the entrance of a Harvard University residence hall, police said. It was not immediately clear whether the male victim, who was shot in the abdomen, was a student. Sergeant James DeFrancisco of the Cambridge Police said that after authorities were alerted about 4:50 p.m. they found the victim on Dunster Street, outside Kirkland House, one of Harvard's 12 undergraduate houses. DeFrancisco said the victim was taken to the hospital and was in stable condition. The Cambridge and Harvard police departments blocked off streets near the shooting and were searching for an assailant, according...

    Seattle Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 8 May, 2009 | David Workman
    There have been two markedly different tales of violence and bloodshed from two different college towns that ended two different ways, reflecting the vast differences in culture and the gaping chasm that exists between the political correctness of the gun-free zone mentality and the common sense of being prepared. Story #1 comes from Middletown, CT, where 21-year-old Johanna Justin-Jinich will not see another birthday because a man identified by police as Stephen Morgan shot her dead on May 6 at an off-campus bookstore café. Morgan was caught by a surveillance camera with a gun in his hand. Alarming about this...

    A Wesleyan University coed who was shot dead earlier this week was not the first person her accused murderer targeted with harassing phone calls and threatening e-mails, the suspect's former Navy buddy told Stephen Morgan, 29 — who is being held on $15 million bond in Wednesday's fatal shooting of Johanna Justin-Jinich at the Wesleyan bookstore in Middletown, Conn. — sent disturbing text messages to his onetime pal following his discharge in early 2003. One of the messages read: "In my path towards Divinity, you won't go unused," "I dodged a bullet on Wednesday and some poor Jewish girl...

    For two days, Wesleyan University feared becoming another Virginia Tech as police conducted a nationwide manhunt for a man accused of stalking and killing one student and threatening to kill more. But the crisis came to an abrupt end late Thursday just 10 miles from campus after suspect Stephen P. Morgan saw his photo in a newspaper and asked a convenience store clerk to call police. Officers found him standing peacefully outside a Cumberland Farms store in south Meriden. They took him to the ground, then walked inside to tell the startled clerk that Morgan was the man wanted for...
  • Conn. students warned to stay in after shooting

    MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Wesleyan University students were told to stay in their dorms and the city's only synagogue closed Thursday as police warned that the man wanted in the shooting death of a woman at a bookstore may be bent on killing other students and Jews. Apparently applying the lessons of Virginia Tech, police and administrators locked down the 3,000-student campus and stepped up patrols as authorities hunted for the killer. Johanna Justin-Jinich, a 21-year-old student, was shot several times Wednesday inside a bookstore cafe just off campus by a gunman wearing a wig. Two years ago, she complained to...

    508 Chicago School Students Shot In 16 Months CBS News Interactive: Guns In America CHICAGO (CBS) ― Twenty-five Chicago Public School students have been murdered this year.

    One need only peruse media watchdog sites like News Busters to see the scope and depth of bias among the mainstream media. Whether discussing political parties, corporations, or gun rights, you can generally count on one-sided promotion of their agenda (Republicans, business, and guns all 'bad'). Such bias deserves to be exposed, because it signifies the failure of the journalistic institution to faithfully perform its public duty to tell people the truth, so that informed citizens may make better choices when voting, and hold elected officials accountable regardless of political affiliation. But that is for another column. Today, I write...

    There are a lot of people who have forgotten about the heinous Newark schoolyard killings last year. (Background links.) I haven’t. And neither have law enforcement authorities and prosecutors in New Jersey, who have worked hard over the past year to bring the MS-13-linked barbarians to justice. Six indictments were handed down today. And officials are now formally acknowledging the illegal alien gang ties and motivations behind the brutal crimes: Prosecutors said for the first time today that the slayings of three college students in a Newark schoolyard last year had a “strong gang component” that was downplayed at the...

    Police investigating the Finnish college massacre are looking into possible direct links with the country's last mass shooting Detectives believe gunman Matti Saari, who killed ten people at a college in the town of Kauhajoki, may have had contact with the killer of eight people at a school in Jokela last November. They are examining email and telephone records and suggestions the guns for both massacres could have come from the same shop. Tuesday's shooting was an almost carbon copy of that in November. Pekka Eric Auvinen, 18, also posted warnings on YouTube. Both gunmen shot themselves and died later...

    Matti Juhani Saari, a trainee chef, arrived at the Kauhajoki School of Hospitality at 11am local time with a pistol, ammunition and explosives in a large black bag, then pulled on a balaclava and began his killing spree in a classroom where 20 people were sitting an exam. "He was very well prepared," said Jukka Forsberg, the caretaker. "He walked calmly. He didn't say anything. He was cold-blooded." Describing how he first realised what was going on, Mr Forsberg said: "I heard the sound of shooting and hysterical girls' voices. Then two girls came towards my room and said a...

The shooting occurred at 8:11 a.m. and the school resource officer was at the school at the time. By 8:13 a.m. Knoxville officers had arrived at the...

    The arraignment of 14-year-old Brandon McInerney, accused of shooting an Oxnard schoolmate in the head, was postponed again Thursday and rescheduled for June. Ventura County Superior Court Judge Kevin McGee granted the delay requested by McInerney's lawyer William "Willy" Quest. Earlier, Quest said in an interview that he is working on a legal motion attacking the constitutionality of trying his client as an adult. The attorney said it will be a "very in-depth" legal issue pertaining to serious constitutional matters. Quest wants time to prepare and submit his legal motion before his client is arraigned McInerney made a brief court...

    The family of the terrorist who killed eight students in a terror attack on Mercaz Harav Yeshiva Thursday night say he used to work as a driver at the institution, but police have denied their claim. Defense officials said the attacker came from east Jerusalem, home to Palestinians who hold Israeli ID cards that allow them freedom of movement. His family set up a mourning tent Friday and hung green Hamas flags outside their home. They claimed that Abu Dhein was arrested by defense forces four months ago and then released two months later. The residents would not give their...
