Details are still sketchy, but the tragic overall picture is clear enough:  early this morning several Price George’s County police officers responded to a shooting in College Park, Maryland, and found three young men — all students at the University of Maryland — who had been shot, two of them fatally. According to evidence on scene, one of the three roommates set a small fire in the house’s basement, perhaps to draw his fellow roommates to the basement. All three students left the house together, which is when the gunman began firing. After shooting both men, he went into the house’s backyard and shot himself.
