Gunman kills 5 people at shopping mall

February 13, 2007


— A man with a shotgun entered a shopping mall and began randomly shooting customers Monday night, killing five people and injuring at least four others before being killed, police said.

More than three hours later, police still were searching stores for shocked shoppers and employees who were hunkered down awaiting a safe escort from the Trolley Square mall.

At least four people were hospitalized, three in critical condition and one in serious condition, hospital spokesmen said.

Two of the critically injured were a 16-year-old man and a 50-year-old man, a spokesman said.

Authorities offered few details about the shootings but said the gunman entered the enclosed mall about 7:45 p.m. CST.

The two-story building, southeast of downtown, is a refurbished trolley barn, with a series of winding hallways and about 80 stores.

Oh, well that poor guy must have had a horrible child hood. Maybe he needed some counciling or maybe a hug. At least he is dead and he wont be sitting in our jails wasting our tax money. This loser probably would have gotten probation from you Lawrence tree huggers.
