    BBC:

    Four people have been found dead following a shooting incident that triggered a stand-off with police in Aurora, in the US state of Colorado.

    Police say they went to a home after shots were heard there overnight.

    Officers later entered the home. After a gunfight they found the suspect dead, along with three people apparently killed earlier, police say.

    Aurora was the scene of a mass shooting in July, in which a gunman killed 12 people at a cinema complex.
    Contra Costa Times:

    Four people were killed this morning including a gunman who held police at bay for several hours in an Aurora townhome.

    Aurora SWAT team members shot the gunman after he went to a second-floor window and fired a gun at police.

    The gunman allegedly fatally shot two men and a woman. One woman escaped from the home just before 3 a. m. and called police, said Cassidee Carlson, Aurora police spokeswoman.

    The woman told police officers that she saw three "lifeless" bodies in the home. The woman was not injured.

    The identities of the victims and the gunmen have not been released. The exact relationships between the victims are unclear, but they all may be related, Carlson said.

    A teacher at a high school in California has been praised by police for averting a serious shooting incident.The teacher and a campus supervisor talked a gunman into putting down his weapon after he had shot and injured one pupil at Taft Union High School.
    Police said the gunman had enough ammunition to kill many people.
    The injured student was taken to hospital in an air ambulance and is in a critical condition.
    The drama started after 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) when the gunman, also a student, arrived late, armed with a shotgun, at the school in the small town in California's central valley.
    Students and staff telephoned police, but before officers could arrive, the suspect had shot at two people in a class in the science block. One shot missed its target.
    The teacher, who had been grazed by a pellet, then intervened.

    A gunman holding hostages in a building near Miami in the US state of Florida killed six people before being shot dead by police.

    Officers stormed the block of flats in Hialeah, north of Miami, on Saturday morning after a stand-off lasting several hours.

    Katy Watson reports:

    BBC News - Florida hostage siege: Seven killed in Hialeah

    A gunman holding hostages in a building near Miami in the US state of Florida killed six people before being shot dead by police, officials say.

    Officers stormed the block of flats in Hialeah, north of Miami, on Saturday morning after a stand-off lasting several hours.

    Two hostages were freed unharmed, police said.

    Five of the victims were found inside the complex. Another man was killed while walking across a street outside.

    'Screaming'

    Police were called after shots were fired on Friday evening.

    They said gunman Pedro Vargas, 43, set his apartment on fire. When the building manager and his wife noticed the smoke and ran to his apartment, he shot them dead.

    The couple's daughter Shamira Piscotti said: "I heard about 15 to 20 shots and so I went outside.

    "My neighbours were screaming that my parents had been shot. I guess there was an altercation and the person opened fire on both of them."

    The attacker went on to kill a man walking in the street and a family of three who lived downstairs, police said.

    He is then believed to have barricaded himself in a flat and taken two people hostage.

    Police moved in after almost eight hours of negotiations, local media said.

    "They made the decision to go in there and save and rescue the hostages," Sgt Eddie Rodriguez told the Associated Press.

    A 9mm pistol was found at the scene.

    Police say there was no clear motive for the shooting and they are still investigating the circumstances.

    Default The latest US gun rampage: Umpqua



    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-a6676011.html

    A now-deceased gunman has killed at least 10 people and injured seven others at a community college in Oregon.

    OREGON AP - The latest US gun rampage

    The emergency services were alerted at 10:38am to reports of a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, approximately 180 miles south of Portland, the state’s largest city.

    Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin confirmed that the gunman was a man in his 20s who was killed during an exchange of gunfire with officers. However, he did not disclose whether the gunman was shot by officers or if he took his own life.

    No police officers were harmed in the incident, he added.

    Witness Kortney Moore, 18, told the Roseburg News-Review newspaper that she was in a writing class when a shot came through a window.

    The gunman then shot her teacher and asked people to stand up and state their religion before firing more bullets.

    Default The "deadliest instance of U.S. gun violence in three years"

    This latest one is very different to the nutter a few days ago at a family planning clinic in Colorado Springs that left two civilians and a police officer dead.

    x2

    The couple suspected of killing 14 people at a holiday party in California amassed thousands of rounds of ammunition and a dozen pipe bombs, authorities said on Thursday as they sought clues to the pair's motives and whether they had links to Islamist militants.

    Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, his wife and mother of his 6-month-old daughter, were killed in a shootout with police five hours after Wednesday's massacre at the Inland Regional Center social services agency in the city of San Bernardino.

    Twenty-one people were wounded in the shooting, which ranks as the deadliest instance of U. S. gun violence in three years.

    San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said at a Thursday news conference that the search of a townhouse leased by Farook and Malik in the nearby community of Redlands turned up flash drives, computers and cellphones.

    Officials in Washington familiar with the investigation said so far there was no hard evidence of a direct connection between the shooters and any militant group abroad, but the electronics would be checked to see if the couple had been browsing on jihadist websites or social media.

    One U. S. government source told Reuters that the FBI was examining information indicating that Farook had been in contact with individuals who were themselves under FBI investigation at some point, some from cases already closed.
    http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/1...0TL2LE20151203

    The attackers who killed 14 people and wounded 21 at a social services centre in California had an arsenal of weaponry in their home, police said.

    Bomb equipment, weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition were found by police in a raid after a shootout that killed the two suspects.

    Authorities still have not found a motive in the attack by Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27.

    Police said the attack indicated there had been "some degree of planning".

    San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said it appeared that the duo was prepared to carry out another attack.
