Tim Kretschmer was calm and silent as he gunned down his former classmates today in southern Germany, witnesses tell the Telegraph. Kretschmer, 17, moved between classrooms dispatching his victims—mainly girls—with a weapon he’d brought from home. The only words survivors heard him say were “Aren’t you all dead yet?” after he returned to a classroom for the third time.
Three teachers died trying to protect students; one stood in Kretschmer’s way with “a defiant look on her face,” a witness said. “He gunned her down with ice-cold efficiency.” Kretschmer killed eight girls, one boy and three female teachers, then two more people at a car showroom as he tried to flee. Finally, the gunman took his own life after being injured by police. (Read more Germany stories.)
