At least six killed in Amish school shooting

BREAKING NEWS
NBC, MSNBC and news services
Updated: 1 minute ago

NICKEL MINES, Pa. - At least six people were killed Monday in a shooting at a one-room Amish school, the county coroner said. The identities and ages of the victims were not immediately available.

The shooter was among the dead, state police Cpl. Ralph Striebig said.

“There are also a number of wounded,” he added.

Three girls, all critical with gunshot wounds, were admitted to Lancaster General Hospital, spokesman John Lines told NBC affiliate WGAL-TV.

WGAL-TV also reported that the shooter was an adult male who had entered the school in rural Lancaster County and and started making threats.

Some people in the Amish community learned about the situation and contacted police, WGAL reported. Negotiations apparently then took place but at some point at least 10 shots were fired within the school, WGAL said. It appeared the shooter took his own life.

Two hours later, about three dozen people in traditional Amish clothing, hats and bonnets stood near the small school building speaking to one another, several young people and authorities.

At least two ambulances had left the scene, and at least one person was taken on a stretcher to a medical helicopter.

Twenty-seven students are said to have attended the private school, which teaches first through eighth grades.

What you guys don't realize is this is in my backyard. This caused me to work 11 hours yesterday. Our newsroom was on the verge of chaos and still is...at 6am Tuesday. We'll be covering this for a while. Good Morning American is here today and using our Live Trucks.

Great day to work in news...!

Yeah I've been working long hours this week so far....I'm in 2 days so far with 24.50.....but it's not because of the amish kids death.
I didn't even know about this shooting until I got home last night and turned on the news....it's quite F'd up if you ask me. I agree with Marko.....it's right in my back yard almost.

i'm like an hour away from lancaster. it's such a shame. of all places to do this...an amish school. who'd ever think that would happen? did you guys hear the reasons the killer had for doing it? i'm sure you did, marko. because he molested 2 family members years ago and was dreaming about doing it again and he hasn't come to term with his premature baby's death after, what, 9 years was it. get a grip!! even those motives make no sense to me. i wish to god this guy wouldn't have killed himself. he deserved to die more violently than that. what a coward.
