Teen kills 9 at Minnesota high school, home (NBC, MSNBC and news services -- Updated: 8:19 a.m. ET March 22, 2005)
The teenager, identified as Jeff Weise, apparently killed himself after exchanging gunfire with police. At least 14 other students and teachers at Red Lake High School were wounded in the nation’s worst school shooting since the Columbine massacre in 1999 that killed 13 people. ...
Red Lake High School, on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, has about 300 students.
The reservation is about 240 miles north of the Twin Cities. It is home to the Red Lake Chippewa Tribe, one of the poorest in the state. According to the 2000 census, 5,162 people lived on the reservation, and all but 91 were Indians.
Did I mention I have felt a call to serve in Native reservations? Did I mention it just got a tad stronger?
