A man in Alabama went on a 24-mile shooting spree Tuesday and killed 11 people, including himself. Among the victims were his mother, his grandparents, an uncle, and a 4-month old baby. The alleged killer, Michael McLendon, drove through south Alabaman towns firing at will. Police chased him to a factory where he turned the gun on himself.
Then this morning, a black-clad man walked into a technical school on the outskirts of Stuttgart,Germany, and began firing before killing 11. Hours after the attack, the gunman hijacked a car and got in a shoot-out with police. Two passersby were wounded as well as two police officers. The New York Times reports the death toll could reach 16, including the gunman. Bloomberg.com reports the gunman was a 17-year-old boy.
