It's mostly just happening over twitter but here's one link.
http://www.ctvnews.c...shots-1.1244745
Reports say a campus officer has been shot.
This has been one of the craziest weeks in America that I can remember.

UPDATE: as reported in the thread, a campus officer was confirmed to have died.

Seems like these things come in bunches, like all the mass shootings not long ago.
And the US just rejected the new gun background checks.

@MichaelSkolnik: BREAKING: A police officer has been shot at MIT in Boston. An active shooter is still on campus. Everyone please stay indoors. RT!

@piersmorgan: BREAKING: Police officer reported to have 'life-threatening injuries' after shoot-out at MIT - not far from #Boston bomb site. Tune into CNN

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Not to go on a huge tangent, but what if the shooter is one of the suspects from the bombing? what if the the suspect is luring them to the school and is going to ambush them? So creepy.

This argument is so old. When guns are made so readily available they are bound to wind up in the wrong hands, control limits the availability.
