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."

    Almost becoming a way of life with us, legislators perhaps want this to be a part of our culture.

      Indeed @Mary.
      A lot I would say.Values have eroded, shades of violence once black are now colored in different shades.Kids growing up now have influences over them which once were in the sphere of family.

    Confused & disturbed, directionless, living in a world where violence is glorified from different perspectives & condoned, the manifestations we see now were inevitable.
