There have been a few other incidents at schools outside of Ohio since 1970, I'd wager.
Yes, there have been, but

Rob was calling back to that, that's all.

If it happened in Austin, he'd have been able to do the same thing.

Only in Ohio would only work if an infantry platoon started clearing the classrooms with gunfire.
Bunch of amateurs here....

I thought for sure there'd be a NFT: "My child was just shot at school, what should I do? thread" by now.

In all seriousness, though. Any updates on the wounded?
Nothing new that I've seen  
Greg from LI : 2/27/2012 11:57 am : link
5 wounded, 3 critical

looking at his surroundings, I'd say the kid was in some pretty dreary location. Bare walls, metal frame institutional style bed......very small room. Almost like he was in a dormitory for troubled youth.

Where did you see his surroundings?

pretty sure he's drawing some conclusions based on the pictures above.

Perhaps this is yankfan?

Apparently, it's always the nice quiet kids. From CNN:

[Updated 1:19 p.m. ET] A student at Chardon High School said that T.J. Lane, the suspect in Monday's shooting, "was a nice guy" who he never suspected would shoot anyone.

“He just came from a really broken down home and he was living with his grandparents," Evan Erasmus, a senior at the school told CNN. "He was more of a quiet type of kid. He was really nice, though, if you did talk to him.”

Erasmus said that Lane and some of the victims "used to be friends" but more in middle school and early high school.

“He was one of the nicest kids there…," Erasmus said. "It was really shocking that it was him.”

Erasmus told CNN that he believed T.J. Lane was either a sophomore or junior at the school.

He said that Lane was sitting about a table away from some of the victims.

Erasmus said he heard the victims "were all sitting there and then he just stood up and that’s when it all started."

Meanwhile, he and the other students in a nearby classroom, "turned the lights off and we headed into a corner" after the shooting.

There's pics of a kid in a green trench coat in a sparse room holding up what looks like a knife, then 2 guns, then a sign dated yesterday.
Ah...are those the supposed twitter pictures?

get pistols?

I would think it's very easy for anyone who has a mind  
Wuphat : 2/27/2012 2:14 pm : link
to it to get their hands on just about anything be it guns, explosives, drugs, or whatever.

Whats the reference to

"Omegle" on the sign he's holding up?

Yeah, it is pretty easy to get  
Cam in MO : 2/27/2012 2:17 pm : link
Almost any type of weapon if you don't mind that it fell off a truck.

Especially if you are near a large city like Cleveland.
It's an online chat

omegle is like chat roulette  
whenwaxattacks : 2/27/2012 2:18 pm : link
links you up to another random user on the site for conversations.

never understood the appeal of either. chat roulette was apparently notorious for dudes showing their junk.
looks like he lived in the attic  
Number17 : 2/27/2012 2:23 pm : link
given that site that was noted, it looks like alot of 'dark loner' bullied outcast stuff is going to come out of the investigation.

According to the lawyer for the shooter's family...  
Britt in VA : 2/28/2012 3:33 pm : link
The suspect is "scared, confused, and extremely remorseful".
