The Winnenden school shooting occurred on the morning of 11 March 2009 at a secondary school in Winnenden, Baden-W rttemberg, in southwestern Germany, followed by a shootout at a car dealership in nearby Wendlingen. The shooting spree resulted in 16 deaths, including the suicide of the perpetrator, 17-year-old Tim Kretschmer, who had graduated from the school one year earlier. Another 11 persons were injured during the incident. In the Albertville-Realschule at approximately 9:30 am, Tim Kretschmer first began shooting with a 9mm Beretta semi-automatic pistol which he had taken from his parents' bedroom. Eyewitness reports state that Kretschmer started on the first upstairs floor where he made a beeline for two top-floor classrooms and a chemistry laboratory.
