Amazing to see the video.. the 2 cops standing there negociating with the killer, the killer hiding behind the beam, and the people on the bottom floor walking not even realizing something is going on upstairs.

Those two cops for sure saved lives today. If the shooter had another 10 minutes he would have emptied all his clips and 20 more kids hurt and more dead.

Lets see you charge a madman with an auto rifle with your 38 handgun. Two hero's today
definitly. they put their lives on the line today. words cant describe their amazing antics. definitly heroes.

The only information right now is her age (20 years old), outside of that... We'll probably know in the next few days.

i can see you're watching the same thing i am

On LCN, the SQ just CONFIRMED the shooter was 25, born in Québec, lived in the Montreal area, and died of MANY gunshot wounds (not confirmed if it was self inflicted or in the exchange with the cops). Rumors say he was of Sri Lankan descent.

HINTED by the SQ was that what people saw in the Alexis Nihon place were actually cops.

2 of my uncles served and retired in the SQ, and they praise the SQ still to this day. There are some things most people just don't know

But in this particular day (today), it looks like it was the work of 2 local policemen.

I love the police, I appreciate them alot, but I guess we're so used associating them with tickets, that we forget all the stuff they do for us

On the left are tons of students on the ground (but you can't see them in the picture). That was just before the shooter started fire on them.

Apparently that was right about where it started. The student also says the school has lots of security cams, so the cops probably have the whole picture of what happened by now.
Cant seem to find this video, anyone have a link for it?

they played it on LCN (TV) and analysed it, even stopping and the student pointing out where they were, where the shooter was, etc.. but it doesn't seem to be online yet.
If i see it, i'll let you know.

I'm having trouble believing the news outlets that say the cops "took the gunman down within minutes". I've heard multiple firsthand accounts from students saying they heard constant gunfire for at least 30 minutes.

Unless there was more than one gunman, which I also believe to be true.

Regardless of the case, I'm praying for the best (if there even is a "best" in a situation like this) for all involved

the suspect is RIGHT behind that bright red beam..

and all the students who are trapped are on the left.. you see the cam pan to the left at some point but you can't see them.. they are on the ground there.

Apparently there had been a few gunshots, then this video happened.. and it's surprising but people on the bottom floor did not even know something had happened. They probably all panicked once the firefight happened after this video.

Yep. This doesn't jive together.

We know for a fact it started at ~12:40 or so because the first 911 call was at 12:42.

The scenes LCN is showing with the cops dragging out the shooter into the stairs and onto the street next to the police car, I BELIEVE, were at 1:05 according to what it said on top of the image.

Now we have these images from LCN were it seems the battle was in the cafeteria area for the most part. Yet there are many reports of gun shots on various levels of the building, close to classes, etc.

The 30 minute timeline does not work, unless the people saying it was 30 minutes simply lost count and it was more like 10-15 minutes, which would be perfectly comprehensible under the circumstances.

It's going to be very interesting to see what they come up with as the ''timeline'' of what happened.

What happened is really sad. Still can't believe somebody can do that.

I'm still kind of confused, police chief just confirmed there was only one shooter, but there were so many reports of someone in camo wear earlier, those seem to have died down, and there were reports of gunshot till around quarter to 2 if I remember correctly.

I am sorry people will probably be annoyed by my post, but the word tragedy really doesn't apply here. I hate what happened, if I could of stopped it for some reason I would of, but just because this takes place here in Montreal, why does it matter more then so many other people around the world dying everyday for no good reason like today?

bah I hate threads like this, shows why the world is the way it is
