I have been watching this since they broke in - what a horrible thing. They are now reporting 9 dead plus the shooter and 5 more in the hospital, some in critical. A 19 year old man did this - what would posess a man to shoot random people at a mall, shoot a teddy bear, and then leave a suicide note. He must have been a troubled young man.

I heard the news awhile ago and I'm sitting here in disbelief. We have tons of family and friends in the area. We're going to start making phone calls as soon as DH gets home.

Acck! How terrible. We've got a ton of family there. I imagine Dh will talk to his brothers later on tonight. How very very sad for everyone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle">

I worked at that mall in high school. My whole family is in Omaha. My sister, mom and in laws are all right. I haven't heard about my aunts, uncles and cousins. I guess everyone who died is someone's family though. . . This is so incredibly sad.

how did he walk into a mall with a rifle and nobody stopped him...<br><br>
CNN are being UAV in their coverage... sensationalist media at its worst. Their font on the tv coverage was just ridiculous.<br><br>
Those poor people and their families... I don't understand... if he wanted to be remembered why not moon the president or some such thing... why shoot innocent shoppers... this shooting strangers is just insane!

There was a heartbreaking interview today on the news by a 79 year old woman who hid in a bathroom. I'm relieved that no children were killed, though it doesn't make it any less tragic. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

We have family in the area but thankfully none were in the mall.<br>
Very heartbreaking.

this has been horrific. we live a few minutes from that mall, and have taken our kids to that very spot many, many times. There is a women's lounge right near there where I have nursed my baby many times as well. While I didn't lose anyone specifically close to me, its mindblowing that this happened at *my* mall....it makes me feel like I don't want to go anywhere.......

How absolutely horrifying. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: Something like this happened in my state two years ago, only in that case, no one that was shot died.

I was wondering how ya'll were doing.<br><br>
As to who takes a gun into a mall... Well. It's Nebraska. It may be the largest city in Nebraska with a lot of cultural attractions, but it's still Nebraska, and Omaha really isn't that far from small town Nebraska like Louisville, or Hastings, or Elmwood. The state is full of rifles for hunting and sport.
