Minnesota teenager charged with planning school massacre: police
5/1/14

MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) - A southern Minnesota teenager who idolized a gunman from a Colorado high school massacre was charged Thursday with planning to kill his parents and sister and then slaughter students and staff at his school, authorities said.

John David LaDue, 17, laid out his plans in an extensive journal and amassed bomb-making materials including gun powder and ball bearings as well as firearms and ammunition, Waseca, Minnesota police said.

"We believe that LaDue planned to carry out his attack within the next few weeks," Waseca Police Captain Kris Markeson told a news conference.

LaDue's journal had references to school shootings such as that at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, where two students killed 13 people and themselves in 1999, a criminal complaint said. He idolized one of the Columbine gunmen and critiqued what he thought they had done right or wrong during their attack, it said.

LaDue told police he had wanted to carry out his attack on April 20, the 15th anniversary of the Columbine massacre, but could not because it was Easter Sunday, the complaint said.

The plot was thwarted when someone called police Tuesday night after seeing a suspicious person carrying a backpack enter a storage unit and close the door behind him in Waseca, a town about 65 miles south of Minneapolis, Markeson said.

Police encountered LaDue and saw bomb-making materials at the unit, Markeson said. Police searched the unit and at his family's house found firearms, ammunition, prepared bombs and the papers documenting his plans, Markeson said.

He was charged as a juvenile with four counts of attempted first degree murder, two counts of first degree attempted criminal damage to property and six counts of possession of an explosive or incendiary device by a person under age 18.

LaDue remains in custody and was identified because of the severity of the charges and because he is over age 16.

He had planned to kill his family, set a fire in rural Waseca to distract authorities and then head to the building that houses Waseca's junior and senior high schools, with more than 900 students, Markeson said.

Based on LaDue's account to police and his journal, he planned to set off numerous bombs during lunch, kill a school resource officer as he responded to help, then set fires and shoot students and staff before being killed by law enforcement officers, Markeson said.

Markeson said the investigation would take several more weeks.

Seattle police: 3 victims in university shooting
6/5/14

SEATTLE (AP) Three people were shot Thursday afternoon on the campus of Seattle Pacific University and a suspect was in custody, police said.

Officer Drew Fowler confirmed three victims were transported for medical care after the shooting late Thursday afternoon.

The Seattle Fire Department said on its verified Twitter account that medics took four gunshot victims to Harborview Medical Center; a man and a woman had life threatening injuries, and two males were in stable condition. It wasn't clear whether the fourth person was the suspected gunman.

Police had initially said they were searching for a second suspect armed with a handgun, but a short while later they said they were no longer looking for anyone else.

About 4,270 students attend the private Christian university, which was founded in 1891 by the Free Methodist Church of North America. Its 40-acre campus is in a residential neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Seattle.

The university posted online that "the campus is in lockdown due to a shooting near Otto Miller Hall." A woman who answered the phone at the school's security office quickly disconnected, saying no one could talk.

The incident follows a spate of recent shootings on or near college campuses.

Last month, according to police, Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured seven before turning his gun on himself in a rampage in Isla Vista, California, near two universities.

Seven people were killed and three injured when a 43-year-old former student opened fire at a tiny Christian school, Oikos University, in Oakland, California, in 2012. A gunman killed five people and injured 18 when he opened fire in a Northern Illinois University lecture hall in 2008.

In 2007, 32 people were fatally shot in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia before the gunman, Seung-Hui Cho, killed himself.

Student shot after argument at N.C. high school
9/30/14

A shooting at a North Carolina high school early Tuesday left one male student wounded and another in custody, officials say.

Local police took a call reporting that shots had been fired in a courtyard outside Albemarle High School at 7:40 a.m., just before classes began. When officers arrived, they found one student, later identified as Bernard Miller, with a gunshot wound to the leg, Albemarle Police Chief William Halliburton said at a news conference. The suspected shooter, Jalen Russell, placed the gun on the ground and surrendered to school's resource officer, an Albemarle police officer.

"In this case we had the suspect immediately in custody," Halliburton said. "We had 20 officers there within minutes."

Miller was taken to Stanly Regional Medical Center. His condition was not immediately known.

The school, located about 35 miles northeast of Charlotte, was put on lockdown and later evacuated. Parents of the 466 students enrolled at Albemarle were asked to reunite with their children at North Albemarle Baptist Church, about a block from the school.

It's unclear exactly what precipitated the shooting.

"There was an argument or some type of altercation that led up to it," Halliburton said.

It's also unclear how many shots were fired before Russell surrendered.

"He could have done more,
" Halliburton said. "So the reaction is that we're thankful that he gave himself up."

According to WCNC-TV, local police had mimicked a large-scale school shooting during an active shooter training exercise this summer.

"I feel we were as prepared as we could be," Halliburton said.

Meanwhile, Twitter users are using the hashtag #PrayersForAlbemarle to send messages of support for the school's shaken community.
