Finnish gunman named by authorities

Matti Saari, 22, named as suspect in Finnish school massacre

The gunman who killed at least 9 students at a Finnish college has been identified as Matti Saari. The man posted several videos on You Tube under the pseudonym Wumpscut86. The postings have been deleted from the website as have repostings of the videos. Most showed Saari firing a Walther P22 pistol. On another website Saari displayed a number of photographs including several of him posing with the handgun [screengrab]. Following the 2007 shooting laws were introduced to prohibit the ownership of weapons for those aged under 18 years.
