Police: School shooting
suspect not cooperating


Two girls injured
in San Diego grade
school shooting
CARLSBAD, Calif (AP) - The
suspect in a San Diego-area grade
school shooting that left two
young girls injured was not coop-
erating with investigators, police
said, and the man's neighbors
described strange behavior in the
months before the shooting.
Brendan L. O'Rourke, 41, was
in custody Saturday for investi-
gation of six counts of attempted
murder and numerous weapons
Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain
said O'Rourke was refusing to
answer questions and police did
not know what he intended to do
or why he opened fire, but they
believe he acted alone.
"He is not cooperating with
the investigation," Cain said Fri-
day night. "He probably has some
mental health issues."
O'Rourke's neighbors told the
San Diego Union-Tribune in a
story posted on its website Sat-
urday that he often screamed
obscenities and racial epithets
alone in his apartment. Neigh-
bors said they frequently called
Vickie Rowe-Mitchell, who
lives in the apartment beneath
O'Rourke, said he would curse and

scream the N-word for hours late
at night, and said his stomping and
banging was so loud her ceiling
fan would shake and parts of her
ceiling would fall.
"I always felt in my head he was
going to do something bad," she
told the newspaper. "It was just a
feeling in my soul."
None of the residents of Canyon
Creek Apartments knew what he
did for a living.
Another neighbor, Ashley John-
son, said she had seen O'Rourke on
Friday morning just a few hours
before the shooting.
"I was opening my door and she
was just leaving," Johnson said.
"He closed his door really fast and
there was this weird chemical
smell. It smelled really weird in his
Police said a propane tank was
found near O'Rourke's car and a
gas canister was found at a play-
ground at the school after the
At about noon Friday, police
said O'Rourke parked his car,
jumped a fence and opened fire on
the crowded playground, hitting
a 6-year-old and 7-year-old in the
arms before construction workers
tackled him.
The girls were taken by helicop-
ter to Rady Children's Hospital.
The injuries were not life-threat-
ening and they are expected to
make a full recovery, Cain said.
Second-grader Caden Smith

said he ended up in a classroom
with injured girls.
"One, her arm was covered in
blood and all you could see was
red," Caden told the North County
Times. "The other, there wasn't
that much blood."
Third-grader Tommy Donahue
said he was playing outside when
he heard what sounded like fire-
"Once the noise happened,
everybody decided to scream and
run for the classroom," Tommy
told the newspaper as he stood
next to his mother. "I felt safe in
the classroom."
O'Rourke was briefly taken to
Scripps Memorial Hospital then
booked at the Vista Jail.
Sheriff's deputies reached by
phone Saturday said they did not
know if he had hired a lawyer.
Parents, like professional surfer
Scott Chandler who lives across
the street, shudder to think of
what could have happened if the
man had not been stopped.
"He had some kind of mission
he was on and he didn't complete
it," Chandler said.
Chandler was repairing a Jet
Ski in his driveway when he heard
two loud bangs and saw children
running and screaming. He ran
downhill in his flip-flops and took
cover behind some tall Eucalyptus
trees while he called 911. He saw
several men struggling on the side
of the road.

A smooth-walled path to daylight

final hours of a two-month odys-
sey christened in the terror of col-
lapsing rock deep under a Chilean
With the eyes of the world on
Chile's no-expense-spared effort
to ensure all the men emerge
unharmed, the miners' physical
and mental health was being fas-
tidiously monitored. Precautions
were taken against all manner of
complications - aspirin to pre-
vent blood clots, a special drink to
settle the stomach, video monitors
to watch for panic attacks.
And officials said the men
were so giddy with confidence
they were squabbling on Satur-
day, the day drills broke through
to them, over who would get to
be the last to- take a twisting,
20-minute ride the half-mile up

to a rock-strewn desert moon-
scape and into the embrace of
those they love.
A tentative but secret list was
drafted of which miners should
come out first when the extraction
begins, probably on Wednesday.
But Health Minister Jaime Mana-
lich said the otherwise coopera-
tive minerswere so sure of the exit
plan that they were arguing about
"They were fighting with us
yesterday because everyone want-
ed to be at the end of the line, not
the beginning," he told reporters.
Manalich told The Associated
Press that a few had volunteered
in conversations among them-
selves to go up first. But none had
volunteered publicly, he said.
"I think they're more excited
than scared or nervous," Brandon
Fisher, president of Center Rock
Inc., the Pennsylvania company
that made the hammer-style drill
heads that created the opening
for the rescue, told AP. "That first
guy up might be a little nervous,
The final order will probably
be determined by two paramed-
ics, one from the Navy and one
from the Codelco state mining

company, who will be lowered
into the mine to prepare the men
for their journey in a rescue cap-
sule built by Chilean naval engi-
Over the past week, all the
miners underwent tests to assess
their health. Manalich said offi-
cials were concerned about acute
hypertension in some of the min-
ers as well as the opposite - sud-
den drops in blood pressure - in
others because of the speed of the
ascent to the surface.
Another concern is blood clot-
ting. To counteract it, the miners
began taking 100 milligrams each
of aspirin yesterday, he said. They
will also put on compression socks
and a special girdle and will beon
a special high-calorie liquid pre-
pared and donated by NASA for
the final six hours before being
removed, Manalich said.
The liquid-only diet is to pre-
vent them from becoming nau-
seated. The rescue capsule is
expected to rotate 350 degrees

Eight suspects
charged for torture,
anti-gay attacks
NEW YORK (AP) - Eight
gang suspects arrested in the
torture of two teenage boys
and a man in an anti-gay attack
were arraigned yesterday on
hate crime charges, standing in
a courtroom with their heads
down and their hands cuffed
behind them as their relatives
At the hearing, Assistant Dis-

trict Attorney Theresa Gottlieb
said that during the Oct. 3 attack
each victim was asked before
being beaten, "Is it true that
you're a fag?"
The charges against the defen-
dants include robbery, assault,
sexual abuse and unlawful
imprisonment as hate crimes.
The defendants didn't enter
pleas, and police were looking
for a ninth suspect, who had
been expected to turn himself in
but didn't show up.
The nine members of the Latin
King Goonies gang had heard
a rumor one of their teenage

recruits was gay and then found
the teen, stripped him, beat him
and sodomized him with a plung-
er handle until he confessed
to having had sex with a man,
police say. The gang members
then found a second teen they
suspected was gay and tortured
him and the man, police say.
The gang members found the
man by inviting him to a house,
telling him they were having
a party, police say. When he
arrived, they burned, beat and
tortured him for hours and sod-
omized him with a miniature
baseball bat, police say.
