Another report from Montreal

4 reported dead in shootings:

MONTREAL — Up to three gunmen dressed in black army fatigues opened fire at a downtown Montreal college today and four people are reported dead, including two of the gunmen.

Police said in mid-afternoon that although many people had been injured, 12 were admitted to hospital and six are listed as critical. The others had been treated and discharged.

The French-language RDI Television network reported that one gunman had turned his weapon on himself and committed suicide, while a second had been shot and killed by police.

This could not be confirmed.

“A suspect has been neutralized, which means he is not shooting any more,” said Ian LaFreniere, a police spokesman.

Montreal police said they believed there were between one and three suspects. A police SWAT team was going floor-by-floor through the college building.

This is eerily similar to the conflicting reports that came out of Columbine as it was unfolding.
