Slasher in China injured 20+ kids. WTF is happening today?
22 were killed. Over 30 total stabbed.
No, 22 were injured, two seriously.
That's great news that I got bad info.

Sicko was 24. That makes more sense.

More info... the mother was at the school and is dead. Not in NJ.

Father dead in NJ.

And they're saying that, with the guns he had, he had to reload a number of times.

If there is a hell, this guy is going. Makes you want there to be a hell. And petty little sins just don't compare.

He went to his mother's classroom and focused firing there, after shooting up admin office.

There clearly is no hell, there clearly is no heaven, there is clearly no god that I would ever worship that would let this happen.

The loud speaker was on during part of it, and that's how teachers knew something was wrong because of streaming over it.

I read it as the shooter's father is dead in NJ and the shooter's child's mother was at the school, but it is starting to get a little byzantine. Still don't know what the second guy's involvement was. This whole thing is starting to sound like some domestic custody issue gone REALLY bad.

It's hard to make sense of all this madness because ... it doesn't make sense. I was talking about this with a work friend earlier. Where she worked before, she worked with a very quiet, unassuming guy whose job was a lifeguard at the YMCA. Years later, she had heard that the guy killed his girlfriend and chopped her up. Sometimes there are telltale signs, and sometimes it's just the "normal" everyday people we presume to know, like that shooter in Portland, OR.

Hmmm...now it seems as if the shooter's mom was a teacher at the school. Looks like your initial summary of the incident might be correct, bigdaddy. And the shooter now has a name: Ryan Lanza.

Horrible tragedy, in so many ways..very sickening thing in all accounts
My deepest condolences to anyone who has lost an loved one

I wonder why is it that (usually young) men so often do these horrible things

It is extremely horrible. Not only short-term for the poor families of the slain, but long-term trauma for those kids who were forced to witness what happened. Many will, sadly, be likely scarred for life.

OK, initial reports said there were two gunmen, but apparently, the news is saying that it was just this 24 year old guy. What a tragedy.

As of right now there is ONE shooter. They are talking to his brother, but that's probably because he is the only living family member. The police were talking to a guy in the woods near by, but he seemed to be hunting or working in the area.

I thought the guy was 20. It made me wonder how old he was when he fathered a child old enough to be an elementary school student.

The president is going to talk in a minute or so. The shooter is 24, we are getting better info now. He might not have any child there, they are no longer talking about that part.
