TOULOUSE, France – A gunman opened fire outside of a Jewish school in the southwestern French city of Toulouse Monday, killing three children and one teacher.
Prosecutor Michel Valet said a 30-year-old man and his 3-year-old and 6-year-old sons were killed in the attack just before classes started at the Ozar Hatorah school. He said another child, between 8 and 10 years old, was also killed, and a 17-year-old seriously injured.
Sources say the school custodian may have been injured as well.
"The drama occurred a bit before 8 a.m. A man arrived in front of the school on a motorcycle or scooter," Valet said, adding that the man got off his scooter outside the school and opened fire.
"He shot at everything he had in front of him, children and adults," he said. "The children were chased inside the school."
Officials say the shooter fled the scene on a scooter.
Police cordoned off the private school in the northeast of Toulouse, and some two hours after the shooting children were still in the school.
Officials say Monday's shooting may be linked to two other shootings in the same area last week.
On Thursday, a gunman on a motorbike opened fire on three uniformed paratroopers at a bank machine, killing two and critically wounding the other. The attack in the town of Montauban occurred not far from the soldiers' barracks.
Four days earlier, a gunman on a motorbike shot and killed another paratrooper in Toulouse.

I'm going to go out on a limb and speculate that a devotee of the Religion of Peace was involved in this.

In shooting on this scale in the US, the shooter is usually apprehended or killed at some point during the shooting, this is the third time for this guy and when they say motorbike they are not talking something with the speed of our motorcycles, this thing has 10" wheels and the equivalent of a lawnmower engine!Pffffffffffffffffffffff!

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
