MONTREAL, Quebec (AP) -- At least one gunman opened fire Wednesday in the cafeteria of a Montreal college and wounded an unknown number of people before shooting himself, witnesses and police said.

Scores of students at Dawson College near downtown fled into the surrounding streets after the shooting broke out in the school of about 10,000. Some of them had bloody clothes.

CBC-TV showed police with guns drawn standing behind a police cruiser.

Martine Millette of the Montreal police said authorities did not know how many people had been shot. There also was uncertainty if there was more than one gunman.

Millette said the man later shot himself. Constable Philippe Gouin said, "In all probability, the suspect has committed suicide."

Student Devansh Smri Vastava said he saw a man in military fatigues storm the school's cafeteria and that he heard about 20 shots fired. Other witnesses said the man wore a black trench coat.

He also said teachers ran through the halls telling students to get out.

Another student who gave her name as Chloe tearfully recounted seeing the gunman pointing a weapon at people.

"All of a sudden I turned around and saw a man who was all dressed in black," she told radio station 940 News.

"This dude with the clothes started pointing the gun at other people. He was right behind me. He turned around and went in the corner of the cafeteria," she said.

Another student told 940 News that she had seen two people who had been shot, including one who was hit in the neck. The student said a friend told her four people had been shot.

Ingrid Keigan, a 17-year-old student, said she saw one person outside who had been shot in the chest.

A SWAT team and canine units were at the college, going floor by floor to look for victims, Sgt. Giuseppe Boccardi told CNN.

"Most of the students have exited the college grounds," he said.

People have also been evacuated from the nearby Alexis-Nihon shopping center.

Dawson College was the first English-language institution in Quebec's network of university preparatory colleges when it was founded in 1969.

It is the largest college of general and vocational education, known by its French acronym CEGEP, in the province.

WTF?

Black trenchcoat. Time to stop blaming Metal for this stuff and blame video games and films. This is frustrating. You have to be in a serious hole to walk in and take out strangers like that.

How about blaming the f#cking killer? Or did he kill personal responsibility as well?

Oh never mind, personal responsibility has been dead for a long time now.
