Yet another German School Shooting

Germany already has the two worst k to 12 school shootings on record, both occurring this decade. None of the news stories that I have seen mention this fact. International Herald Tribune has this report here:

FRANKFURT: An attacker clad all in black stormed into a high school in southwestern Germany on Wednesday morning and shot and killed at least 15 people, according to news reports citing the local police department.

Several more people were wounded in the attack at the Albertville technical high school in Winnenden, on the outskirts of Stuttgart.

Several hours after the attack, German news reports said, the attacker hijacked a car and died after a shoot-out with police in the town of Wendlingen, 25 miles, or 40 kilometers, away, where two passers-by were also killed. Two police officers were wounded in the shooting and the total number of fatalities could reach 16, including the attacker, the reports said, quoting the police.

The police said the attacker shot and killed nine people inside the school and two more outside as he fled. The school has around 580 students. . . .
