Horrible. The link wasn't clear if the gunman had been arrested or was still in the building. I hope that this ordeal is over/will soon be over for the hostages. I don't know how easy it will be for the survivors to recover from such a scare.

Good. Otherwise the rat b**tard would have lived a long life in prison.
I know this is awful to say, but I can only hope that he suffered greivously before his death.
