NOTE: This is a story from 09/05/2012 that was stuck in the “draft” folder. Still as timely as ever.
French authorities say five people, including a teenage girl, have been shot in a forest in the Alps. All five were initially reported to be dead. The teenage victim is now reported to be in critical condition in a hospital, according to a local prosecutor.
An official with the regional administration for the Haute-Savoie region says three of the bodies were found in a BMW registered in Britain.
The Sipa news agency says the girl was found alive with bullet wounds on a forest road.
It happened in a forest near Chevaline, near Annecy lake, in Haute-Savoie.
The initial reports said a cyclist discovered the girl, the three bodies in the car and a fourth body, of a cyclist lying nearby.
The identity of the victims is unclear. The British Foreign Office says it is aware of reports of the incident and is looking into it.

Wait a minute… how is that possible? I mean, guns are just about completely outlawed in Europe (the Swiss being the notable exception.)
It appears that no matter how strict the gun laws become there will always be some nut who’s willing to break the “Gun Control” law. i.e. to rob or kill.
