The man who killed three women and wounded nine others at a fitness club last night had no relationship with anyone there. That's according to Allegheny County Police Superintendent Charles Moffatt...and that's contrary to earlier reports that 48-year-old George Sodini might have been targeting an ex-girlfriend. Moffatt says Sodini had four handguns and fired at least 36 shots in the aerobics room at the L.A. Fitness Center in Collier Township.
Moffatt says Sodini conducted several practice runs at the fitness club before actually going through with the shootings. He visited the gym a total of three times yesterday. Moffatt says no one in the club could have prevented the killings... "He had a lot of hatred....he was hellbent to commit this horrendous act...no one was going to stop him."
Police gave some details from the suicide notes Sodini left in his gym bag. Those details are similar to some of the complaints in his blog: for instance, that he had never gone on vacation with a woman.
Moffatt says information from the blog have been turned over to the Computer Crimes Interagency Task Force.
