Thanks to Soobs for the tip.


  1. And now they are saying it’s an adult gunman. Of course, so was that psycho in Canada a few weeks ago.


  2. The latest I can find out is that he now has released all but 2 of the hostages, he has 2 girls with him, but police are negotiating.

    Snipers are in position though.

    No reports of any casualties as yet.

    I hope that stays the same.
