This must of been his way of ‘spreading the wealth’.
A teenager who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire with a shotgun at a Colorado high school, wounding two students before killing himself.
Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building.
The scene unfolded on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary, a sombre reminder of the ever-present potential for violence in American schools.
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson identified the shooter on Friday night as 18-year-old Karl Halverson Pierson.
The shooter entered Arapahoe High School armed with a shotgun and looking for a teacher he identified by name, Sheriff Robinson said.
……Two suspected Molotov cocktails were found inside the school, the sheriff said. One detonated but no one was injured.
Within 20 minutes of the report of a gunman, officers found the suspect’s body inside the school, Sheriff Robinson said.
……Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist. “He was exuberant I guess,” Conrad told The Denver Post.
The gunman responsible for Friday’s shooting at Arapahoe High School in Colorado is being described as a “socialist” by his fellow students.
“He was friendly enough. Very proud of being a socialist. He was very outspoken on his political views,” student Angie Mock said. “To him, it just meant economic — more economic equality.”
The student who entered a high school here Friday and is said to have shot a fellow student before taking his own life was targeting the librarian over a disagreement about the debating team, authorities said.
The alleged shooter, Karl Halverson Pierson, had a dispute in September with Arapahoe High School’s librarian, who was also the debating team’s coach, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson told a news conference on Saturday. The nature of the disagreement wasn’t immediately clear.
Just wait…the leftwingnuts at MSNBC will find a way to blame the Tea Party or the GOP for pushing this poor young budding Bolshevist to murder. Maybe his skills at debating the ‘virtues’ of socialism were lacking.
At least the little darlin’ used a round on himself. That will spare the taxpayers from footing the bill for a trial.
