A "high-powered rifle"?

Don't they mean a child-murdering assault rifle? LOL
Keep an eye out on this one, too...just like Ft. Hood, the original call was a shooter on the roof...just like Sandy Hook, they have at least 2 in custody? If you can, get the local news affiliates' feeds before they get them edited for Scott Pelly tonight at 6:30.

The suspect wasn't riddled with 80 bullets? Makes me wonder.
