Updated: Changed headline to more accurately reflect what happened. Dammit.
Looks like the Amish are feeling left out of the whole school shooting fad. They seem like such nice people too.
PARADISE, Pennsylvania (CNN)—A lone gunman walked into a one-room Amish schoolhouse Monday and opened fire, killing six people, according to initial reports.
The gunman then shot and killed himself, police said.
The shooting took place at Wolf Rock School in Paradise, a school run by the Amish community with about 27 students in grades 1 through 8.
The man ordered some students to leave before opening fire on the remaining students, said state police spokesman Jack Lewis.
Lewis told CNN that the gunman shot and killed at least three students and a county coroner told The Associated Press that at least 6 people had been killed in the shooting.
A number of other children have been seriously injured, he said.
Well, at least they won’t be able to blame video games this time.
I must not have read the original article close enough as it turns out the shooter may have been some truck driver not associated with the Amish. No motives given yet, but they’ll probably try to blame video games if they can.
