According to this, anti-games campaigner Jack Thompson appeared on Fox News this morning to blame yesterday’s Illinois University shooting on games such as Counter-Strike.

As far as we’re aware, no evidence has linked anything that happened during the shooting with gaming in any way.

Stephen Kazmierczak opened fire on a class at the university yesterday, killing five and injuring 15 before killing himself.
