    Police: Pa. man who attacked gym had 4 guns - Yahoo! News


    BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. – Police in Pennsylvania say a gunman who sprayed bullets at women exercising at his suburban Pittsburgh health club, killing three of them, did not have a relationship with any of the victims. Allegheny County police Superintendent Charles Moffatt also says that the 48-year-old gunman, George Sodini, had four guns on him and used three of them in the attack.

    Sodini was a member of the L.A. Fitness club and had been there two times Tuesday before he came back at night.

    Sodini killed three women and wounded nine others. He then killed himself.

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

    BRIDGEVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A man who sprayed bullets into a fitness class filled with women, killing three and then himself, apparently kept a Web page in which he wrote about years of rejection by women and an earlier plan for violence at the gym in which he said he "chickened out."

    Neighbors described 48-year-old George Sodini, who worked in a law firm's finance department, as anti-social, and the Web page in his name showcased a resume setting forth his credentials as an unhappy loner. It listed his date of death — Aug. 4, 2009 — and his status of "Never married."

    He complained of not having a girlfriend since 1984, not having a date since May 2008 and not having sex for 19 years.

    Moral of the story: Girls, refrain from snickering at guys at the gym who look like this:
