Shooting in a School, No Word Yet on What Video Games Were Involved

So, a fifty three year old man enters a school, takes hostages, assaults and kills some of the children, and the media draws a parallel to the Columbine killings.

I guess we can ignore the obvious difference in apparent motives, age, the targeting of females over males, and the lack of connection between the attacker and the attackees. There is no mention in the report of how the gunman played Grand Theft Auto or Doom in his car, but if the radio works it is possible that they could still conclude hard rock or metal were involved. Also, the perpetrator's black trench-coat still appears to be at large.
