Another day, ANOTHER school shooting!

2 University Of Maryland Students Die In Murder-Suicide

Via NBC Washington reports:

A University of Maryland student opened fire on his two housemates in an off-campus residence and then turned the gun on himself, Prince George’s County Police say.

Authorities are calling it a murder-suicide at a house in the 8700 block of 36th Avenue near University Boulevard.

All three residents were male University of Maryland students, but it is currently unknown whether they were undergraduate or graduate students.

Police said that shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, one man set a fire in the basement of the home. When the other two housemates confronted him, he opened fire, killing one and injuring the second as that student tried to flee the house.

The shooter then went to the rear of the house and killed himself, police said.

The injured student is expected to survive.

The discussion of gun violence in this country is never ending but what about mental health? The shooter clearly had some issues to open fire on his housemates and then to kill himself. When will the violence end? Condolences to all the families who lost someone today. This is just sad!
