Finland Police Release More Info Following School Shooting

Police in Finland released more information about the student they believe opened fire at a school.

The shooter killed eight people Nov. 7 before turning the gun on himself.

Nearly a dozen people were injured in the rampage.

Finnish police believe the teenage shooter had problems.

"The preliminary analysis which we have of is that he is a quite lonely person. He has great anger against society and he expressed a lot of extreme opinions and radical thoughts," explained Jan Olaf Nyholm, detective chief superintendent.

Flags are flying at half-staff across Finland.

Government workers held a three-minute moment of silence to honor the victims.

The school is closed for the rest of the week.
