12 killed in Cumbria shooting

Twelve people have died and 25 got wounded Wednesday afternoon in West Cumbria after a man open fire. The police found the body of the suspect in a nearby forest. The killer, thought to be the taxi driver Derrick Bird started to shoot randomly in several places across Cumbria killing also his mother. After the incident, Bird drove to the south of the city, abandoned the vehicle and ran into the Boot zone where he was found later by the law people. The incident determined many facilities to close their gates including also the Sellafield nuclear power plant.
