Finland College shooting kills 9


A gunman killed 9 people before killing himself last Tuesday, September 23, at a vocational school in Western Finland.

The killer, 22, opened fire on a class of students taking a test. The shooter, still unidentified, was questioned by police a day before the shooting from a violent YouTube video he posted. Police said they had no further reason to hold him in custody.

Investigators have since then found notes from the killer that say he quote “hates humankind� and has been planning the attack since 2002. Reported KPSP
