Unhappy 12 dead in U.K. shooting rampage

12 dead in U.K. shooting rampage
Suspect, a taxi driver who was 'friends with everybody,' also found dead

SEASCALE, England - A taxi driver drove his vehicle on a shooting spree across a tranquil stretch of northwest England on Wednesday, killing 12 people and wounding 25 others before shooting himself, officials said.

The rampage in the county of Cumbria was Britain's deadliest mass shooting since 1996 and it jolted a country where handguns are banned and multiple shootings rare.

The body of the suspected gunman, 52-year-old Derrick Bird, was found in woods near Boot, a hamlet popular with hikers and vacationers in England's hilly, scenic Lake District. Police said two weapons were recovered from the scene.

Default 12 killed in UK shooting spree

12 killed in UK shooting spree
AMIT ROY


London, June 2: The Lake District of England is one of the most beautiful and peaceful areas of the country, especially popular with tourists from India, but today it witnessed a horrific nightmare as Derrick Bird, a 52-year-old apparently normal taxi driver, went on the rampage with a shotgun killing 12 people and injuring 25 others before turning the weapon on himself.

As the scale of the killings taking place in the county of Cumbria unfolded through the day, it was thought that five had died.

Five was certainly thought to be the toll at lunch when David Cameron, the new prime minister presiding over his first prime minister’s questions, addressed a sombre Commons chamber.

That was grim enough but when Detective Constable Stuart Hyde, a senior police officer involved in the hunt for Bird, called a news conference just after 5pm, there were audible gasps from journalists as he announced: “At this stage we’ve recovered 12 bodies plus Mr Bird. The 25 injured are in a range of conditions. There were two weapons, we’ve recovered both of them.”

Bird’s body was found in a forest after he had driven through picturesque villages, where the crime rate is the lowest in the country, picking off his victims, including women out shopping, at random.

In all, police are investigating “30 separate crime scenes”.
