    Suspended 14-year-old shoots 4, then kills himself at school

    BY HELEN KENNEDY

    Thursday, October 11th 2007, 4:00 AM


    A Cleveland 14-year-old who threatened to shoot up his school in retaliation for a beating did just that Wednesday, opening fire on teachers and students before killing himself.

    Asa Coon, who was suspended from school for fighting Monday, walked into SuccessTech Academy with two guns, one in each hand, and blasted away as he strode down a fourth-floor hallway.

    Two male teachers and two male students were hit but the gunman was the only fatality. A 14-year-old girl was hurt in the panicked stampede.

    "I knew that dude was crazy," a classmate told TV reporters. "We used to say he going to come one day and shoot us up - but we never knew it was really going to happen."

    Coon, a "Goth" who decked himself out in black nail polish, a trench coat and Marilyn Manson T-shirts, and who claimed to worship the Devil, had been beaten up for saying "f--- God," one student said.

    Afterward, "he said he would shoot everybody dead," 10th-grader Aaron King told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

    "He's constantly yelling at his mom," neighbor Rachel Metzger told the paper. "He's pretty violent."

    His rampage lasted less than three minutes. Coon shot himself before police arrived at the school, Cleveland Police Chief Mike McGrath said.

    Coon was one of the handful of white students at the mostly black school for 250 high-achieving teenagers with a talent for technology. It's partly funded by Bill Gates. All 59 of last year's seniors went to college.

    The scene at the school has become painfully familiar: Frantic parents running, shocked teens locked in group hugs or crying into cell phones, cops massing, stretchers coming out of schoolhouse doors.

    King said he and his entire math class spent an hour huddled in a bathroom, hiding from a gunman they didn't know was already dead. "There must have been 40 kids or more in there. People were scared."

    blame it on bad parenting, video games, bad schools, and the incredible ease of getting guns.

    the school he went to has a 94% grad rate, much higher than the district it is in. from what i see, he didn't fit in at school. Being a white goth who was into rock and didn't believe in God in a school that was predominantly black. Also, he seemed to be a nut, he was always talking about blowing up the school. I mean, he many have just been crazy.
