Upstate New York gunman kills 13, commits suicide
A gunman barricaded the back door of a community center with his car and then opened fire on a room full of immigrants taking a citizenship class Friday, killing 13 people before apparently committing suicide, officials said.
One receptionist was killed, while the other, who was shot in the abdomen, pretended to be dead, then crawled under a desk and called 911, he said. Police said they arrived within two minutes. The rest of those killed were shot in the classroom. Four people were critically wounded.
Police heard no gunfire after they arrived but waited for about an hour before entering the building to make sure it was safe for officers. They then spent two hours searching the building.
The timeline always seems to be the same when the victims can't fire back:
gunman arrives > kills everyone > kills himself > police arrive > police stand outside pointing weapons and the building for hours
The timeline when a potential victim can shoot back like in the recent church shooting incident:
gunman arrives > gunman shoots > gunman gets shot > everyone else lives
