Reports: Two Gunmen Open Fire at Montreal College
Wednesday, September 13, 2006
FOXNews

MONTREAL Two gunman opened fire Wednesday on the campus of a Montreal college, wounding at least 10 people, witnesses and police said.

Scores of students at Dawson College near downtown fled into the surrounding streets after the shooting broke out in the school of about 10,000 students. Some of them had bloody clothes. Live TV coverage from the scene showed police surrounding the campus and training their weapons on people exiting the buildings with their hands in the air.

Canadian TV stations reported that two gunmen were involved in the shooting and that both had died on the scene one was shot by police, the other appeared to take his own life.

Witnesses said one shooter was wearing a black trench coat and was firing at students and teachers at random in one of the school's cafeterias. Other witnesses said a gunman was dressed in camouflage fatigues.

The CTV network, citing government sources, reported that 12 people were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Six were in critical condition.

The network reported that the shooting began around 1 p.m. ET, and that police were searching for a possible third gunman.

Student Devansh Smri Vastava said he saw a man in military fatigues with "a big rifle" storm the school's cafeteria.

"He just started shooting at people," Vastava said, adding that he heard about 20 shots fired. He also said teachers ran through the halls telling students to get out.

Other witnesses spoke of a gunman wearing a black trench coat.

"We all ran upstairs. There were cops firing. It was so crazy," Vastava said. "I was terrified. The guy was shooting at people randomly. He didn't care he was just shooting at everybody. I just got out."

Derick Osei, 19, said he walking down the stairs when he saw a man with a gun.

"He ... just started shooting up the place. I ran up to the third floor and I looked down and he was still shooting," Osei said. "He was hiding behind the vending machines and he came out with a gun and started pointing and pointed at me. So I ran up the stairs. I saw a girl get shot in the leg."

Osei said people in the cafeteria were all lying on the floor.

Another student who gave her name as Chloe tearfully recounted seeing the gunman pointing a weapon at people.

"All of a sudden I turned around and saw a man who was all dressed in black," she told radio station 940 News.

"This dude with the clothes started pointing the gun at other people. He was right behind me. He turned around and went in the corner of the cafeteria," she said.

Another student told 940 News that she had seen two people who had been shot, including one who was hit in the neck. The student said a friend told her four people had been shot.

Ingrid Keigan, a 17-year-old student, said she saw one person outside the school who had been shot in the chest.

A SWAT team and canine units were at the 12-acre campus, going floor by floor to look for victims, Sgt. Giuseppe Boccardi said in a TV interview.

"Most of the students have exited the college grounds," he said.

People have also been evacuated from the nearby Alexis-Nihon shopping center.

Canada's worst mass shooting also happened in Montreal. Gunman Marc Lepin killed 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnic on Dec. 6, 1989.

That shooting spurred efforts for tighter gun laws and greater awareness of societal violence particularly domestic abuse. Canada's tighter gun law was achieved mainly as the results of efforts by survivors and relatives of the victims.

Another shooting in Montreal occurred in 1992, when a Concordia University professor killed four colleagues.

Dawson College was the first English-language institution in Quebec's network of university preparatory colleges when it was founded in 1969. It is the largest college of general and vocational education, known by its French acronym CEGEP, in the province.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

witnesses gave differing accounts... fatigues vs. trenchcoat, so there was some concern that there may have been more than one shooter, but according to the ap... "Police spokesman Ean Lafreniere said there was just one gunman at the school and the search for any others was over."

then again...

The number is continually fluctuating in the news. The careful news outlets went with 'probably anywhere between 1 and 3 gunmen'

The more brazen news sources went with solid numbers.

Given that all trenchcoats were banned in my highschool because of Columbine, how much you want to bet fatigues will be the next to go?

My school thought about banning trench coats. Maybe they were too scared of us... ::grins::
