Estonia Fatal School Shooting


The first ever school shooting in the country of Estonia has occurred in the town of Viljandi, where a 15-year-old student fatally shot and killed his teacher during a German class. There were no other injuries reported, and the shooter has been taken into custody. The 56-year-old teacher, however, has died from the gunshot wound. The shooter was using a gun which was registered legally to his father. As yet, no motive has been given for the shooting, and school administrators were not aware of any conflicts the teacher may have had with any students. There has not been any official identification of the boy by authorities, but one news outlet in Estonia is reporting that the unidentified shooter had made some dark posts on Facebook earlier in the year alluding to planning murder.
