Shooting by Canadian trench coat killer affects industrial / goth scenePosted on 14/09/06
It are rough times for industrial / goth music fans these days as a result of yet another trench coat killing that took place, this time in Montreal, Canada. Industrial music fan Kimveer Gill shot dead one woman and injured 19 others at a college in Montreal on September 13th. Kimveer Gill, 25, portrayed himself as a gun-loving Goth who hated authority figures and wanted to die "in a hail of gunfire". Sadly enough, he posted these words on his profile on the popular VampireFreaks.com community making the site being hit hard by press and the general public. As a result the owners decided to take the profile offline to calm down the storm. Also taken offline was a picture portraying himself dressed in a black shirt and long black trench coat with what appears to be an automatic weapon, apparently the same outfit he used during the shooting. Gill was also a member of the Side-Line forum known to us under the nickname Fatality666, the same he used on other sites so it seems. Unlike his Vampirefreaks.com profile his Side-Line profile didn't show anything weird and at the moment of taking it offline he had no history of posting comments. Gill died from two bullet wounds. The Police says he committed suicide.
