Whitehaven Shooting Kills 12, Injures 25

A taxi cab driver shot 12 people and injured at least 25 others across Northern England Wednesday before apparently killing himself. The body of a man fitting Derrick Bird’s description was found in a wooded area with a gun. Police think that Bird, a 52-year-old father of two, began his rampage in the town of Whitehaven by murdering two fellow taxi drivers and wounding a third. He then drove along the coast firing his shotgun apparently at random.
