Was Montreal College Shooter Inspired By Columbine?


A man with a black trench coat whose shooting rampage in a Montreal college killed one person and wounded 19 others before he was killed by police said on a blog that he liked to play a role-playing Internet game about Colorado’s Columbine High School shootings, the Associated Press reports. The gunman who opened fire at Dawson College yesterday Kimveer Gill, 25. Six victims remained in critical condition, including two in extremely critical condition.

In posts on the Web site VampireFreaks.com, blogs in Gill’s name show more than 50 photos depicting him in various poses holding a rifle and donning a long black trench coat and combat boots. He said on the site that he liked to play “Super Columbine Massacre,” an Internet-based computer game that simulated the April 20, 1999, shootings at the Colorado high school by two of its students that left 13 people dead. “His name is Trench. you will come to know him as the Angel of Death,” he said in a vampirefreaks.com profile. “He is not a people person.” He wrote that he is 6-foot-1, was born in Montreal and is of Indian heritage. He said his weakness is laziness and that he fears nothing. Responding to the question, “How do you want to die?” Gill replied, “like Romeo and Juliet – or in a hail of gunfire.”
