Police: Student shot 2 inside Virginia college

An 18-year-old student drove to a community college campus located inside a western Virginia mall on Friday, walked in, then opened fire - wounding two women - before being subdued by an off-duty security guard and two police officers, authorities said.

Christiansburg, Virginia, police Chief Mark Sisson identified the suspect Friday night as Neil Allen MacInnis, who he said was a student at New River Community College.

An item on the online forum 4chan - posted at 1:52 p.m. Friday, three minutes before police estimated the shooting began - said it was from Neil MacInnis, who wrote that he goes to the same community college's satellite campus in Christiansburg.

The post urged people to check out an online stream of the New River Valley Public Safety scanner and promised, "I'm gonna give y'all the details because the news never gets it right."

    We're pretty blaze' about gunviolence, alright! There has to be a large # of dead/injured before it get's our attention, these days! It's really sad to know that it's a preventable epidemic, but no1 wants to do anything about it! Seems the 2nd amendment is larger than life, so to speak!!

    Kids are running amok w/unsecured/easily attained gun's! I would think we cared about these preventable incidents! Come on, y'all, this is between us, not the government! Can't we have civil discourse about an issue that concerns all of us??
