9 dead, including killer, in Omaha, NE mall sniper shooting

Five are injured. Two of them are in critical condition. I’m watching the live press conference now.

Here’s a story that gives a general idea of what happened this afternoon at Westroads Mall. So very, very tragic.

Authorities believe the killer died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Witnesses described seeing him on the third floor, shooting down to the second floor with a rifle.

Update 1: The story from Fox News’ website says that local station WOWT-TV reported the shooter, a 19 y/o white male, left a suicide note earlier that stated “I’m going out in style.” (h/t: DRJ at Patterico’s blog)

Update 2: Just found the WOWT story here.
