Montreal school shooting

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by today’s school shooting at Dawson College in Montreal, especially our fellow Metrobloggers in Montreal.

One of the authors, Jay, has worked at Dawson College for the past nine years and was in the school today during the shooting which left one woman dead and 19 others injured. The gunman was shot dead by police.

Luckily, Jay was not hurt; he did, however, witness one of his colleagues get shot while trying to protect a student.

Jay has posted a personal account of his horrific day here.

Other Montreal Metbloggers are posting up-to-the-minute details surrounding the day’s events at Metroblogging Montreal.

    I second your sentiments. I used to go to Dawson.

    Makes me ill. I wonder what the reaction in the Indian community is?
