    OMG!!! A SECOND GRADER brought a gun to school?

    Whoever owns that gun should serve some time in jail, imo.

    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    the little girl has been identified. Prayers for this angel.

    Amina Bowman, who was shot in the stomach, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. She was alert and conscious at the time, and was immediately taken into surgery at the hospital.

    An accident. A nine-year-old has a loaded gun at school and shoots an eight-year-old, who may not survive. The school said this was an accident. WTH???

    I am pretty sure by "accident" they mean it was not intentional. With his age being only 9, I am not sure what kind of consequences from criminal justice system he could face regardless.
    Just my opinion

    Sounds to me like he saw it, thought it was cool, and slipped it in his backpack to show a friend or something.

    What a horrible thing.

    I'm just glad to hear a 9 year old didn't shoot the other student on purpose.

    I was having a really hard time wrapping my mind around that.

    Just another reason I would love to be able to home school. Kids shouldn't have to be scared to death to go to school to get their educations. Very sad.

    I so agree!!! There was a shooting at my kids' school, and we heard it over the scanner first, me and their dad were there just minutes after the cops (couldn't get there fast enough)!

    I'm so glad my daughter is finished school. I would be terrified to send her. What a shame. With the increase in shootings as well as molestations by teachers, its a wonder there are any children in school at all. Not that I'm big on homeschooling. I am just concerned for the safety of children in school today.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:
