They may have 1 suspect in custody, or at least it sounds that way.

Regardless of how big Omaha has become..you'd think we'd be immune to this.

Sad sad day.

Just heard that one individual has a self-inflicted gunshot wound (may have been the shooter) and four others have been transported to area trauma centers. One victim was shot in the head. (There were initial reports of two fatalities.)

It made all the national channels (Fox, CNN, MSNBC). Scary.

Nobody is immune to this stuff anymore. Didn't someone go nuts in an Amish schoolhouse a while back? It can happen anytime, anywhere.

I just hope nobody is hurt seriously or killed. I just heard a radio report that there may be as many as 17 people taken to hospitals.

Could Omaha.com suck any worse?

I know there are some nice folks who work over there..and I'm srue some of them try...but good lord is that a horrible..horrible website.

North Platte's paper has a better website than the OWH.

It's a miracle if that's all there was.

If you let a gunman loose...at that mall..at Christmas...you could do some serious damage.

omaha.com has been extremely flaky all week; I would imagine that their servers have melted down.

Channel 7's web site was doing well with a live video stream earlier.

Good thing the Westroads bans legal permit carriers from bringing weapons into the mall. Clearly, those "no weapons" signs keep the bad guys in check!

One of the news stations was reporting that a 19-year-old Sarpy County teenager left a suicide note saying he was "going out in style."

Very very sad.

We can discuss weapons laws at another time. Let's let the situation cool down first and get some facts.

WOWT-channel 6 is reporting that a 19 year old Bellevue man left a suicide note saying he was "going out in style".

Sending prayers and blessings to the dead, injured, and traumatized people in the mall, their families and loved ones.

Also to the family and loved ones of the shooter.

Fair enough, but I don't think there's any doubt where I stand on that topic. I will keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers..I'm trying to get ahold of all my former coworkers.

I can't get over an interview channel 6 had with a friend of the shooter.

Reporter: Did the Robbie like violent video games?

Kid: Of course! Who doesn't like first person shooter games? We played them all the time.

Reporter: How do you feel right now?

Kid: Oh, I don't know. I'm pretty bummed ya know? I guess it hasn't sunk in yet, but it sucks that I won't even see Robbie again.

There's more, but that was the icing. I couldn't believe they didn't end it sooner. I know you have to get all sides of the story, but sometimes, especially with younger people, you shouldn't do live interviews. They don't necessarily have tact. Respect for the victims' family is most important right now and this kid showed a major lack of it.
