Actually, only two of them have died so far. The youngest victim is being treated at a hospital and may or may not survive.

One of my first thoughts when I heard this news story was, "Please don't let him be autistic. Please don't let him be autistic. Please don't let him be autistic...."

I doubt it, I'm betting drugs were the driving factor.

The shooter killed two, and then himself. It's three.

Oh jeez, now they found a loaded rifle in a nearby metro area high school. :roll:

I was waiting for a bus after leaving a grocery store and I didn't know about the shooting until I arrived home.

This was in Clackamas. I live in Scappoose, which is over an hour away. There's no need to worry, but thank you.
