Um,I've not seen names released by CNN, Fox, etc. (as of 9:03PST) How are you guys getting names? And have the names that are posted been confirmed by the police and other officials? I see there's one name that seems to be confirmed, but the others?

Might not be in the best interest of the families to be saying who's dead and who's not without official confirmation.

Heartfelt condolences to ALL families and loved ones, including those of the shooter. They too are in pain today regardless of what happened.

It is well documented that disturbing questions remain over the incident at Columbine. It is clear that authorities had prior knowledge of what was going to happen. Observers were in the area hours before the shooting took place. Articles from the Associated Press stated that ballistics from Columbine show that six of the thirteen victims were possibly shot and killed by Jefferson County SWAT.
