    I'm sure it was pandemonium... Had to have been Crazy for the people who were anywhere near the sick fool.

    Wonder why he picked a mall of all places for something like this? When people go nuts like this and try to make a last stand, don't they usually go after people who they feel wronged them (family, former co-workers, etc)? Its always horrific that stuff like this even happens and all, but I always gotta wonder why they did it.

    I came close to something of this sort back in 2003. I worked a amjor department store in a mall in California were a freight employee went postal. He found his girlfriend cheating on him so heshot and killed her and the other man in the bed they were having sex in. He went to the mall fired off random shots not hurting anyone locked himself in the executive offices and shot himself in the head. the swat team found his body and the mess left over of a self-inflicted head shot.

    Personally, I'm not surprised at his choice at all. Still, ominous either way.

    I heard the shooter was only 18, but I can't find a site to back it up.

    Somehow this will get blamed on Grand Theft Auto.

    (Though any GTA player should know the mall is the last place you want to start shooting as it's a good way to get killed)

    And possibly even Dead Rising. The shooter was totally like a psychopath from out of DR.

    Plus the game took place in a mall.



    Jack's probably eating this up, but he should know better by now
