12 Dead in England Shooting Rampage

http://news-updations.blogspot.comAt least 12 people have been killed and 25 injured by a gunman who went on a rampage in Northern England before killing himself.

Police look under a sheet covering a body on Hagget End Road, in Egremont northwest England where a person was shot dead when taxi driver Derrick Bird went on a shooting rampage in northwest England,

The suspect, identified as local taxi driver Derrick Bird, apparently drove through several small towns, shooting as he went. Police are investigating 30 different crime scenes and carefully are tracing the suspect's route, concerned that they could find more bodies.

The first shooting occurred at 9:35 a.m. GMT, when Bird opened fire on Duke Street in the Cumbrian town of Whitehaven. Among the victims was a young woman.

"She died in our arms, we tried to shake her and said, 'Come on, come on, the ambulance is coming,' but she wasn't conscious," eyewitness Barry Cross told the BBC News.

"They were serious gunshot wounds," Cross said. "It looked like he must've seen her and pulled over, walked out with his sniper and shot her point blank in the back of her head."
