Fourth victim in Amish school shooting dies

Amish School Shooting Leaves Four Girls Dead:

A fourth victim of Charles Carl Roberts IV has died…

Three girls were pronounced dead soon after the incident. A fourth girl later died at a Pennsylvania hospital, and at least six victims were still critically wounded, FOXNews confirmed.

Most of the victims had been shot execution-style at point-blank range after being lined up along the chalkboard, their feet bound with wire and plastic ties, authorities said. Two young students were killed, along with a female teacher’s aide who was slightly older than the students, state police Commissioner Jeffrey B. Miller said.

The victims were members of the Old Order Amish. Lancaster County is home to some 20,000 Old Order Amish, who eschew automobiles, electricity, computers, fancy clothes and most other modern conveniences, live among their own people, and typically speak a German dialect known as Pennsylvania Dutch.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
