5 Dead, At Least 25 Wounded in British Shooting

A taxi driver went on a shooting spree across a rural area of northwestern England today, killing five people and wounding at least 25 before killing himself.

From the Associated Press:

Officers found a body believed to be that of 52-year-old suspect Derrick Bird in woodland near the Lake District village of Boot, Cumbria police said. A gun was found alongside the body.

“I regret to report that a number of people have been shot and that at least five people have died,” Prime Minister David Cameron told lawmakers in the House of Commons. “I can confirm that a body of a gunman has been found by police.”
