Teen Goes On Shooting Rampage At His Former High School

My heart stops every time I hear such a headline in the news.  On March 11th, a 17 year old former, male, student of Albertville High School in Winnendon, Germany stormed the school and shot and killed 9 students, 3 teachers, and 3 other people off campus with a Beretta 9 mm pistol that his father kept in his bedroom.  The young man then shot himself following a high speed chase with police.

The motive for the shooting is unknown.  Officials have pointed out that 8 of the 9 students killed were girls.  This is the worst school shooting in Germany's history.
