    Gunman takes aim at shoppers

    From correspondents in Kansas City

    THREE people have been shot dead including the assailant in a shooting spree at a Kansas City shopping mall - and a fourth death may be connected.

    US police were today investigating whether an earlier homicide at a house 10km away involved the shopping mall gunman, who was killed by an officer.

    Kansas City officers said a man, whom they did not immediately identify, pulled into a car park outside the mall that was filled with "hundreds and hundreds" of shoppers and immediately fatally shot two people who were parked on each side of him.

    The gunman went into the mall and wounded at least two other people, according to Sergeant Tony Sanders.

    "It was just mass chaos, as you can imagine ... in a crowded mall," Sgt Sanders said.

    The incident came nearly two weeks after a Virginia Tech university student killed 32 people and then himself in the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

    Sgt Sanders said police were called to the mall and shot and killed the attacker, who was armed with what he would only describe as a "long gun".

    Local media reported that the gun was an AK-47.

    The series of events began about 2pm CDT (5am AEST) when police were called to a house in an upmarket south Kansas City neighbourhood where they found a woman's body.

    Local television reported the victim was a 67-year-old woman found dead in her kitchen. The reports quoted family members as saying a male neighbour had been harassing her.

    After discovering the woman's car was missing, police put out a description of the vehicle.

    An officer who subsequently pulled the suspect vehicle over went to the driver's side of the car, when the driver pulled out a handgun and shot him through the arm and fled, according to police.
    The officer was taken to a hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

    About 15 minutes after that incident, police received the report of the shooting at the nearby mall. They entered and shot the gunman there, Sgt Sanders said.

    Witnesses told radio and television they heard shots inside the mall, and one said his son saw a man on the ground in shock with blood on his face.

    One shopper, Cathy Crist, told the Kansas City Star newspaper she had been eating lunch inside the mall when she heard shots that seemed to come from the car park outside.

    She heard women scream, "He's killing us", before she dived under a table for cover.

    Target employee Caffie Bradshaw, 19, said she was in a break room with two other people when they heard shots, the Associated Press reported.

    She said co-workers saw a white man with a rifle who was "spraying bullets".

    so "spraying bullets" only kills what, 2 or 3.... while a glock and .22 killed 32... hmmmmmmmmmmm
