Seventeen year old Tim Kretschimer walked into his junior high school this morning and opened fire, killing 17 people. Among the dead are three teachers and 11 students. At least 6 others are injured. The shooting occurred in the down of Winnenden, just outside of Stuttgart. Police say that Kretschimer walked into a school classroom dressed in military gear and shot wildly for 2 minutes before running off. Police placed the town on lock down while they searched for the boy. Officials originally believed that they had shot and killed Kretschimer in a standoff, but it now looks like he took his own life.
