Horrible news from Alabama, where Michael McClendon went on a shooting spree in two towns in the south of the state yesterday, killing at least 10 before turning the gun on himself at a metals plant. The Alabama Department of Safety says police are investigating at least four separate shootings, all by McClendon. The rampage began late Tuesday afternoon in the town of Samson, where the gunman killed five people in one house and one each in two others. He also wounded a state trooper, shooting at his car seven times, and then killed a person at a supply store and another at a service station, before going to a metals plant where he wounded the town police chief and killed himself. Among the dead are McClendon's grandparents and aunt and uncle.
