Extra! Tacoma Student Killed in Shooting

A student was shot to death at his high school as classes about to start this morning, and police were searching for the gunman, officials said. The student's age and details of the 7:30 a.m. shooting at Foss High School were not immediately released, but police spokesman Mark Fulghum said no one else was believed to be injured. He said police were trying to determine what prompted the attack. The suspect was believed to be another student, and school district spokeswoman Peggy Holmgren said there were witnesses to the attack. (Full report here)

Cis: Another child killed, at school in Tacoma this morning ... When does it end? Even after a 12 day cool off of vacation this person felt they had to come to school and kill ... I still think my idea of starting in 2 or 3 grade of classes of anger management and how to compromise and kept it going every other year until they graduate from high school. ... What causes this? It wasn't going on when I was in high school.. (no this isn't one of those when I was young, everything was perfect) ... what is it about the times that has brought killing in schools?
