HELSINKI, Finland (CNN) -- An 18-year-old authorities say shot eight people inside his high school in southern Finland, before turning the gun on himself, has died, police said.

The shooting appeared to have been planned out in graphic videos posted on Internet file-sharing site YouTube.

At a news conference this afternoon, police confirmed the dead numbered two girls, five boys and the school's headmistress at Jokela High in Tuusula, a quiet town around 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Helsinki.

Ten other people were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

I was surprised that a thread based on this incident hasn't been posted yet. For those in doubt, this goes to show that school shootings are not just confined to America and this one ended with the same result as VT: the killer kills himself.
