Shooter in Minneapolis Kills 4 Then Himself

"This is something we see on the news in other parts of the country, not here," Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Kris Arneson said Thursday night as her department began investigating why a man apparently walked into a sign company, killed at least four people and then took his own life.

The early signs, as The Star Tribune reports, point to "a man who apparently had just lost his job" at the company as being the gunman. He apparently "opened fire, killing the company's founder and three others and wounding four others" before committing suicide. Three of the wounded are reported to be in critical condition.
