Gunman, 5 others die in Seattle shootings

The suspect in a string of fatal shootings in Seattle died Wednesday evening, several hours after he shot himself in the head at the end of a five-hour manhunt, police said.

Police did not immediately release his name.

Detectives believe the man was behind both the shootings at a coffeehouse in the city's University District and the death of a woman near downtown about a half-hour later, police said.

In all, the gunman shot six people. Five died and one was in critical condition.

    Terrible. What is frightening is that we are seeing more of such mindless crimes. Is that indicative of a disturbed society or are these isolated incidents??
