Fatal shooting at shopping mall, Espoo Finland


news.bbc.co.uk

Several people have been shot dead in the southern Finnish city of Espoo

witness said an employee of the Prisma grocery store was left lying on the floor of the shop, and that a man dressed in black was seen walking toward the Citymarket store.

A separate, unconfirmed, report said one person had been shot twice in the head and another in the stomach.

Parts of the shopping centre were closed and trains were not stopping at the local railway station, YLE said.

Another shooting in a mall. Four dead according to the BBC.

This is just breaking so nothing more to go on right now, but there is a terror warning for attacks in the Bali region on New Years Eve, is this connected?

Nothing more to say at the moment as this is breaking news

* oh it looks like the gunman got away......................................................

Could be another Flase Flag. I read yesterday that American Intelligence were warning Mexico to keep a eye out for possible attacks on Supermarkets, Transport Infastructure etc. Would be intresting to see what goes on over in Bali the next few hours also, aswell as American intrests in the Middle East and on the Continental US.
This could simply be a irate guy wanting some revenge on someone/s, but the randomness doesnt fit the stereotypical profile of a mall-shooter.

As seen with Virginia Tech and the last shooting in Scandinavia, they always leave video's prior to their actions on Youtube, explaining the reasons for their actions. Unfortunately which are discovered after the attack has occured.

The sixth is the shooter himself.
the one woman who was found at apartment was shooters ex wife
and the four others were that womans co workers in prisma supermarket so no terrorist agenda here...
propably the guy went to find his ex ,she wasnt at work, blew away 4 innocent people ,went to ex wifes, blew her away went home and blew himself away
...geez this world is getting crazy

KRP, finnish interior police (?) is holding a press confrence. Six dead at the moment. Jealous shooting it seems, his ex and her new boyfriend being the primary targets.

Early life Shakupolli was born in Kosovo and resides since 1998 in Finland.[2] Prior to the Shootings he has been convicted in 2007 of posession of 18 9mm cartridges[3]

Finnish media, police etc. don't tell which country shooter was born. Why? He is just "foreigner".

Before youtube theyd often leave Video's to be found in their homes, or as with one case (cant recall from memory which), the Shooter sent a Parcel to 2x MSM offices stating his intentions, It may have been Virginia Tech, but Im not too sure.

Hmm..

kleviusnews.blogspot.com...



Klevius translation: Ibrahim Shkupolli is a UCK/KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army - i.e. muslim terrorists) veteran. He killed 32 Serb civilians in the Qela village in 1997. Also fought against Serb police. He is wanted in Serbia already since 1995.

Real information?

He seems to be a Muslim Albanian meaning he doesn't quite appreciate adultery. Nothing about being a war criminal is in the Serbian media but the man was obviously some kind of militant in Kosovo.

Maybe Christmas shopping hype pissed him off additionally
