Shooting in Baku

There was a shooting at a university in Baku today. The only thing that I’ve heard that seems credible is that there was a Georgian who was ethnically Azeri that entered the school and started shoot at people as he made his way up a staircase before turning the gun on himself. Here’s the LA Times article on it.

I’ve heard rumors of up to 50 people dead and up to three gunmen, but I’m not sure what to believe at this point.

In America, these stories have become all too common.  I remember right where I was when Columbine happened, not only because of what was happening, but also because it was so big and so new.  It’s too bad that Azerbaijan has joined the list of places where being at school isn’t safe.
