    Frankly, I hope it was gang-related, rather than a lone wolf. The body politic seems to "accept" gang-related shootings as a by-product of gangs, rather than a by-product of gun-ownership.

    Not a Columbine scenario. It was a specifically targeted murder.

    Seems to me that carrying a gun in school and murder are both agin the law. If so, I don't see that there's anything left to do but enforce the law.

    The "suspect" was on probation, his sister has been wanted for murder 1 since the first of August.

    The victim's dad just got out of prison and has a long record with drugs, theft and violence. His mom was released from jail today and has a long history of drugs and prostitution.

    The "suspect" and the victim argued on the bus and it carried on into the morning wait in the cafeteria. The "suspect" shot the victim point blank and didn't threaten anyone else.

    The motive for the murder isn't known at the moment.

    According to a member on TGO it's a drug deal gone bad.
