Yeah I heard about this. Not the worst ever, though. Columbine was he worst ever.

I don't see the motive for doing it at a university. It isn't like you HAVE to go there. Why don't you just transfer or drop out?

Actually the shooter isn't dead, I think he got away. The university is on lockdown.

True Columbine was only 15 people, but it was one of the first.

Edit: Nevermind he is dead.

There is a still a lot of confusion, they've now shown another man held down by police holding a gun to his head.
