US Shooting in shopping mall

Man with rifle opens fire in Omaha

mall, killing 8 before committing


Story highlights:

  • Mother of alleged gunman found suicide note, law enforcement official says
  • Law enforcement source identifies the gunman as 19 year old Robert A. Hawkins
  • The person believed to be the gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound
  • Three of the wounded are in critical condition
  • Sources:

    I don’t know why I’m always so bothered by such shooting incidents. Is it ‘cos the gunmen (rarely a gunwoman huh) usually kill themselves after that, or is it ‘cos I feel lucky living in a place where people (other than law enforcers) don’t carry guns and don’t get easy access to guns.

    Edit: See his suicide note 2 posts up, or click



    1. Hello!

      I am contacting you because I am working with the authors of a book about blogs, and I’d like to request permission to use the photograph you have posted in this book. Please contact me at, and I’d be happy to give you more information about the project. Please paste a link to your blog in the subject field. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.



    2. Hi Matt,

      It’s good to hear that you’re working on a big project. However, I’ve did a search and I’ve found that you’ve left similar notes on other blogs. Such is the paranoia in me that I am afraid of sending an email to you lest there’s some hacking involved. So could you please shed some light on this project here?
