2007-11-07 - Jokela High massacre


Jokela, Finland (FI)
Seven students and a school principal have been killed by a pupil who opened fire with a handgun hours after posting a video on YouTube predicting a massacre.

The gunman, 18-year-old Pekka-Eric Auvinen, later died in hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Witnesses described chaos and panic as Auvinen shot dead his headmistress, five boys, two girls, and wounded a dozen others as they tried to flee the carnage.

just to get things straight, that server folder is not the nutjobs, someone just mirrored the contents on the matter from several sites.
