Deadly School Shooting

Investigators remain on the scene of a deadly shooting rampage at a high school in northern Minnesota.

Ten people are dead -- including the teen-age suspect -- and about a dozen others wounded after Monday's shootings on the Red Lake Indian Reservation. It was the nation's worst school shooting since Columbine in 1999.

The dead include the gunman's grandfather and a woman who may have been the grandfather's wife or girlfriend. A teacher, a school security guard and five other students were killed before the gunman took his own life.

Authorities haven't identified the gunman, but several students say he was Jeff Weise, who may have been a student at the school. Several students say Weise espoused anti-social beliefs, and he may have posted messages on a neo-Nazi Web site.

The gunman reportedly smiled and waved as he fired. Some pleaded with the shooter to stop.
