According to Canadian officials, Kimveer Gill scouted other schools before picking Dawson College for his rampage. According to the article Gill had scouted 3 other schools. Those schools being Universite de Montreal, Vanier College, and a Laval high school. It’s unknown why he settled on Dawson.
Police recovered a notepad from his car that contained hand-drawn sketches of routes leading to all four schools, Cmdr. Richard Dupuis said.
On the page with directions to the Universite de Montreal, Mr. Gill had scribbled the words “too big.”
“There are indications he may have considered other schools,” Cmdr. Dupuis said. “Did he go inside (them)? We don’t know. They were rough plans he had designed, but nothing too detailed. Just what roads to take to get there.”
It has been known that Gill did enter Dawson College weeks prior to his assault. So it’s a not a stretch that Gill probably did enter the other schools.
