Fifth Amish school shooting victim dies

5th girl dies after Amish schoolhouse shooting:

This is getting to be more than I can handle…

NICKEL MINES, Pa. – A milk-truck driver carrying three guns and a childhood grudge stormed a one-room Amish schoolhouse Monday, sent the boys and adults outside, barricaded the doors with two-by-fours, and then opened fire on a dozen girls, killing three people before committing suicide. Early Tuesday, two more children died of wounds, a hospital spokeswoman and state police said.

At least five other victims were critically wounded, authorities said.

The fourth victim, a 7-year-old girl, died about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, hospital spokeswoman Amy Buehler Stranges said.

“Her parents were with her,” Buehler Stranges said. “She was taken off life support and she passed away shortly after.”

Shortly afterward, state police announced the death of a fifth child at a hospital in Delaware, Pennsylvania.

The article also states that Roberts’ ‘revenge’ may have had something to do with the death of Roberts’ child in 1997 but that’s hardly 20 years ago.
