The Montreal Massacre was my first thought, and was it an anniversary or something.

The massacre at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal of l'Université de Montréal took place on December 6,1989. That's when Marc Lepine, who was an anti-feminist, shot 26 people and killed 14 women, 13 of them students. He separated the men from the women.

Today's event seems to be a completely random act in the sense that the shooter did not choose his targets.

(AP) A man with a black trench coat whose shooting rampage in a Montreal college killed one person and wounded 19 others before he was slain by police said on a Web site in his name that his favorite Internet game was about the Columbine shootings.

The gunman who opened fire at Dawson College on Wednesday was Kimveer Gill, 25, of Laval, near Montreal, a police official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because authorities were not ready to announce it publicly yet.

Six victims remained in critical condition, including two in extremely critical condition.

The official said police had searched Gill's home.

In postings on a Web site called VampireFreaks.com, blogs in Gill's name show more than 50 photos depicting the young man in various poses holding a rifle and donning a long black trench coat and combat boots.

One photo has a tombstone with his name printed on it _ below it the phrase: "Lived fast died young. Left a mangled corpse."

The last of six journal entries Wednesday was posted at 10:41 a.m, about two hours before the gunmen was shot to death after the college shooting.

He said on the site that he liked to play "Super Columbine Massacre," an Internet-based computer game that simulated the April 20, 1999, shootings at the Colorado high school by two of its students that left 12 classmates and one teacher dead.

This is just horrible. I went to Dawson College and I never thought this would happen.

Im keeping the people injured and their families in my thoughts.

Apparently the first police were on the scene within 4 minutes of the first shooting. I am thankful that the response was so quick and that the police entered the building right away instead of waiting outside. It could have be so much worse than it already is.

A sad news item was released on the CBC news website tonight. The family of the slain girl, Anastasia DeSousa 18yrs old, revealed today that they were not notified of their daughter's death until late in the evening although her death occurred around 1pm. The family is upset because the police took such a long time to notify the family. Her body was not removed until 6am Thursday morning, 16 hours after her death. She is survived by her parents, and two siblings, a younger brother and sister.
