Bush inspires teen shooter in Omaha

Alex Jones claims Bush was in town earlier in the day talking about mental health (he`d know a lot about drug treatment). Apparently the Dept. of Homo Security visited the same mall earlier that day too... weird.

Bush "deeply saddened" by Omaha mall shootings as more details revealed

WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- The shocking shooting rampage in a shopping mall in Omaha, Neb. on Wednesday "deeply saddened" U.S. President George W. Bush, and details of the tragic incident were revealed on Thursday.

"The president is deeply saddened by the shootings in Omaha," White House press secretary Dana Perino said Thursday. "His thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families," she said.

President Bush had visited Omaha on Wednesday before the shooting.

The police revealed on Thursday more details of the shooting rampage, in which a young man shot dead 8 people before killing himself.

Thomas Warren, Omaha's police chief, told reporters that Robert A. Hawkins, 19, of Bellevue, Neb., came into the store and looked around before leaving and returning with an assault rifle to open fire.

Mall security officers noticed Hawkins briefly enter the Von Maur department store at Omaha's Westroads Mall earlier Wednesday, he said.

Hawkins left the store and returned six minutes later concealing something -- presumably the AK-47 assault rifle used in the rampage -- under a hooded sweatshirt, Warren said.

The young man then turned right, took an elevator to the third floor and immediately started shooting in the store's customer service area.

Warren said Hawkins apparently chose his victims randomly and spoke little or not at all while firing about 30 rounds.
